Commonwealth games 'to boost India travel'

Article content

25 November 2009

India travel could be set to leap in popularity next year as the country hosts the 2010 Commonwealth Games.

Writing for the Kathika Travel Blog, Amanda Kendle noted that Delhi will host the attraction and it is expected to bring 100,000 tourists to the city.

"It will be the largest multi-sport event ever held in India, so there is a lot going on, both for the sports people and the tourists the Games will attract," she explained.

According to Ms Kendle, hotels in India are already upgrading to cater for the swarm of holidaymakers anticipated to take a trip to see the event, which is being held for the 19th time.

The Delhi Transport Corporation is also training staff members to speak better English in preparation for the occasion.

Earlier this month, the Press Trust of India reported that the nation's government won the World Travel Award 2009 for its Incredible India tourism campaign.ADNFCR-2704-ID-19478523-ADNFCR
