Buland DarwajaIs the travel bug biting you?

Kovalam, KeralaThere are Red Hot Deals, Featured Packages and Smart Fares with as many payment options just waiting to be taken. So, whether you're heading for an international or a domestic destination, now's the time to go.

The global recession had taken its toll worldwide, on all sectors of the economy, but the Sept 11 attack, crippled the tourism industry so badly that it turned out to be the biggest casualty of all. According to India Today, the apex body of the US travel industry, has forecasted an 11% drop in business travel and a 9% drop in leisure travel by Americans after 9/11. However, the industry is bouncing back, turning adversity into opportunity. In an effort to revive the industry, they are now offering big bargains at incredible discounts

Taj Mahal, AgraOn the Indian front
A fresh beginning has to be made if India has to tide over the crisis’, says Mr Jagmohan, Minister for Tourism.

Bearing in mind that tourism is a big source of employment generation and foreign exchange earning and that every million rupee invested in tourism creates 48 jobs as compared to 12 jobs in manufacturing, India is going all out to give special boost to domestic tourism, particularly the tourism connected with pilgrimage and use the new facilities and infrastructure created in this regard to serve as a back bone for international tourism in times to come. The name of the game now is to propagate India as a safe destination, tap the far-eastern markets and start a reformation movement in India to inculcate a 'work culture' of the highest class.

Anjuna Beach, GoaRight now the industry is discovering that India has a domestic traveller who can more than make up for the substantial drop in videshi arrivals. Star hotels and heritage resorts, big tour operators and airlines, which exclusively targeted foreign tourists, are now going all out to woo the desi tourists.

Theres a package for every pocket and segment
DarjeelingIt's a great time to go on vacation as the industry pulls out all stops - incredible holiday packages, slashed room rates and rockbottom airfares. Popular summer destinations are usually to the US, Europe and the Far East while winter destinations are restricted to neighbouring countries like Bhutan, Maldives and Sri Lanka, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and sometimes to Africa.

While God's own country, Kerala, has always been a hotspot to the discerning tourist with its beaches, backwaters, hills and ayuirvedic therapies, Rajasthan, that solely depended on the foreign tourist, has been badly hit. Hoteliers in Shimla are wooing tourists with 70% discounts.
