TravTalk - India - - NTO -

In 2017, Latin Amer­ica is ex­pected to emerge as a new source mar­ket for in­bound tourism, feels Amit Rana, Gen­eral Man­ager, Holiday Inn Am­rit­sar, Ran­jit Av­enue. Rana points out Scan­di­na­vian coun­tries, Aus­tria, USA, the UK, Ger­many and the Far East as some of the source mar­kets which will con­tinue to grow for In­dia. “I feel off­beat or new, un­ex­plored des­ti­na­tions, with rich cul­ture, her­itage and well­ness quo­tient will grow. It is not about lux­ury but to con­sol­i­date energy in these times. I also feel that ad­ven­ture tourism will at­tract a larger num­ber of tourists. With in­creas­ing de­mand, there has been a rise in bou­tique and mid-scale ho­tels at­tract­ing more in­bound tourists to In­dia,” says Rana. He adds that do­mes­tic tourism is ex­pected to grow better than in­bound tourism and the num­bers for this seg­ment will be ac­cen­tu­ated by an in­creas­ing num­ber of bud­get young trav­ellers as back­pack­ers. Cou­pled with this, he feels that vil­lage tourism will also wit­ness growth in 2017. Fastest Grow­ing Travel Com­pany (North 2016) – Hol­i­days by Sahibji
