Puducherry has a lot of tourism potential to be explored

Published on : Tuesday, November 12, 2019

Puducherry has now become a favorite tourist destination in the south, due to its pristine beaches and landscape. However, in spite of this, many regular visitors to the city and those in the hospitality industry feel that there is tremendous potential to be explored and unraveled, which could fetch higher revenue to the government besides sustaining the growth of the tourism sector.


Puducherry attracted 15,31,972 domestic and 1,31,407 foreign tourists in 2017.


The figure went up to 16,16,660 domestic tourists and 1,41,133 foreign tourists in 2018.


Till October this year, 14,54,994 domestic and 1,39,359 foreign tourists visited Puducherry.


“This year, the October figure itself is high compared to previous years. With November and December being peak tourism season, we are expecting a record number of tourist inflow,” said an official with the Tourism Department.


In the domestic sector, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Kerala, Chennai, Odisha, and West Bengal accounted for a big chunk of visitors. Foreign tourists were mostly from European countries, especially France.
