India has a promising tourism sector with untapped potential

Published on : Friday, July 6, 2018

visa and entry for Indian touristsThe travel habits of Chinese citizens are indeed changing the world. The Chinese tourists are taking about 145 million overseas trips a year; they are also spending more than that of any other nation.

 
In less than 10 years, the World Travel & Tourism Council expects India to become the fourth-largest travel and tourism economy after China, the US and Germany.

 
More and more people are visiting India than ever before. However, the real boost is coming from domestic travel. Almost 90 percent of travellers in India are Indians. For the last three years, the most popular destination has been the southernmost state of Tamil Nadu, and it’s all due to the pilgrims eager to visit its temples.

 
Tourism in India generated more than $230 billion in 2017, going up from almost $209 billion in 2016. India offers myriad options: 36 world heritage sites and 103 national parks, plus the Taj Mahal in Agra, Rajasthan’s hill forts, the holy city of Varanasi, and everything else in between the mountains of the Himalayas and the beaches of Goa. India’s jungles are filled with tigers, elephants, and the last of Asia’s lions. No other country is better suited to take advantage of an adventure travel market that’s expected to grow to $1.3 billion by 2023.

 
In India, propelled by government subsidies and tax incentives, five regional budget airlines debuted 100 far-flung routes last year, which is great for promoting citizens’ desire to explore.
