UK 'vital for India travel market'

Article content

11 December 2009

UK tourism is vital to the India travel market, a government official has claimed.

Kumari Selja, India's minister of tourism and culture, stated that British travellers are "very important" to the country as they are adventurous and enjoy visiting a range of places.

According to Mr Selja, this will be particularly true for the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi, for which he said UK residents will be "the biggest source market".

Commenting on the event, he remarked that it is to "provide a huge opportunity for India to showcase the country as well as the Games.

"It will give people the chance to come and rediscover India."

Those looking for inspiration while visiting the country were told that the beaches in Goa are particularly popular with individuals from the UK, as is the local wildlife.

Lonely Planet's Best in Travel 2010 recently tipped India as one of the top destinations to experience next year, with the publication citing its excellent value for money as a reason for journeying there.ADNFCR-2704-ID-19508163-ADNFCR
