Dream travel destination or nightmare?

Share
Posted: 12 years ago

Hi ppl,

I am just back from a lovely holiday in Switzerland...it is considered to be a dream destination for tourists by many and now I know why...beautiful country with a well preserved ecology, friendly people, an absolutely wonderful public transport system...

this set me thinking about India as a tourist destination...we seem to have the right ingredients...Beaches , Heritage Monuments, Palaces and Temples,Sandy Deserts, Rain Forests, lakes, rivers,vast streches of Greenery,  innumerable festivals celebrated with gusto through out the year, hospitable people...still we are dismally behind the other popular tourist destinations of the world...

What are the reasons...What can be done to improve the situation...can we ever become a tourist friendly country...Would love to hear your views..

And yes...it feels good to be back...hope all u guys missed me!WinkLOL

welcome back Tongue i am sure you might have enjoyed it, i have also found such places very clean and tourist friendly such that i can literally spend my time on such pavements LOL LOL LOL . i have seen in india people don't have a good sanitation, this is not from experience but saying it by watching the movie toofan this lady throws the garbage on the head of toofan's friend Confused, that makes me think how often does that happen, i cannot believe people in india can do that, don't they have trash cans? now i am sure it doesn't happen everywhere, there might be some elite places where people don't do that but still some places need to be cleaned. i am not even talking about the villages but those cities and towns need some kind of cleaning. moreover people must stop spitting paan especially anywhere, they should have those boxes that you usually see in movies about lucknow to spit in it, please Dead Dead Dead or they must spit in some plant or container but not on streets or walls Dead Dead Dead Edited by raunaq - 12 years ago

We did miss you Ashu, but you missed not much Embarrassed in comparison to Suisse.  LOLLOL 
I think that in order to improve Indian tourism, we should work on building better infrastructure and also work sincerely hard on respecting what Mother nature has blessed us with, instead of trashing it Confused Advertising diverse attractions more than TajMahal & Goa could be helpful too!
