South India’s Mysuru Tourism stakeholders suggest ways to boost numbers

Published on : Wednesday, June 20, 2018

Mysuru TourismPractically all the stakeholders in the Mysuru tourism industry suggested measures to encourage tourists to make their stay longer in Mysuru instead of keeping it a one-day affair. They suggested introducing attractions such as evening cultural shows, shopping festivals, and late-hour food joints for extending the night life.

Another key issue raised before Minister for Tourism and Sericulture S.R. Mahesh at the stakeholders’ meeting here on Tuesday was giving a new life to Brindavan Gardens, which was in a shambles, with nothing of interest to tourists.

After giving a patient hearing to the stakeholders, the Minister promised to submit the proposals to Chief Minister H.D. Kumaraswamy during a meeting in Bengaluru on June 25 and strive for developing tourism in the city.

Earlier, Mysuru Travels’ Association President B.S. Prashanth gave a Powerpoint presentation on the short-term and long-term proposals for tourism promotion in Mysuru.


His proposals included aggressive marketing of Mysuru tourism in international travel festivals for doubling the number of foreign visitors; their numbers had been on the decline for various reasons.

He said Mysuru has a big scope for being promoted as a “wellness hub” and urged for aggressive social media campaigns by the Tourism Department for doubling the footfalls which is currently around 4 million here.

His other proposals include circuit buses connecting tourist destinations, theme parks, more public toilets for tourists, better parking facilities and management, monitoring of tourism projects, introduction of hot air balloon adventure, sky diving, Mysuru Wheel on the lines of London Eye, ropeway to Chamundi Hills, and night safari at Mysuru zoo on the lines of Singapore’s Night Safari.
