South India is undoubtedly a perfect blend of traditional and modern, preserving its rich culture and heritage besides encouraging contemporary infrastructure development. The region is fast moving towards becoming a major hub for both inbound and domestic tourists and we would like to support the efforts of individuals who have been instrumental in helping the tourism sector grow in this region.
As a tribute, DDP Group decided to hold India Travel Awards to recognise the achievers of the travel and tourism industry, who have worked steadfastly towards enhancing the environment to allow the growth of this business. These stalwarts need to be acknowledged, appreciated and encouraged in every region, and we have started the journey this year from South India.
Our highest honour, the Gold Maya, is awarded to those stalwarts who have shaped the industry in the way it is today by creating innovative ways and products to take the industry a notch higher. The earlier editions of the South India Travel Awards have set the beginning of a journey of long-term associations with some and a renewal of the bond with many others.
Overall, the fifth edition of South India Travel Awards was another successful chapter in this journey.
India Travel Awards will be travelling to various other southern cities in its subsequent editions. Thus, we take upon ourselves, in our own small way, to revive and enhance tourism in the southern states of India.
