During the process of building our company, many people have asked me, "Why in the world would anyone want to travel to India?" Well, it's actually quite intriguing.
According to the World Economic Forum’s (WEC) Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Report 2015, India has vast and diverse natural resources (17th best in the world) and rich cultural resources (10th). India is a country that prides itself in visitor-friendly traditions, diverse lifestyles, and colorful cultural heritage. India has much to offer the potential visitor: brilliantly-colored fairs and festivals; beautiful beaches, forests, desserts, jungles, and wildlife for eco-tourism; the rivers and mountain peaks of the Himalayas for adventure tourism; technological parks and science museums for science tourism; centers of pilgrimage for spiritual tourism; yoga, Ayurveda, natural health resorts, and hospitals for wellness and medical tourism; unique textiles, jewelry, carpets, leather goods, ivory, and brass work and other handicrafts; and the list goes on and on. And India is attractive to the money-conscious traveler, ranking 8th best in the world in price competitiveness.
