Cancel your international holiday this summer. No seriously. Indians are suddenly re-discovering India. And why not? ‘Diverse India’ is a cliché’, but it’s also the truth. And discerning travelers are waking up to the fact. The country’s travel and tourism industry is pegged at 38 billion and is expected to reach 117 billion in 2023. Currently, the domestic travel sector contributes a lion’s share—more than 30 billion. We have the forests, handicrafts, history, and lots and lots of colour. The majestic Himalayas will give the Alps a run for their money. The beaches of Goa beat those in Thailand, Delhi’s architecture is more than a match for Rome’s.
