Indian Travel and Tourism Industry – A sneak peak

Do you know the largest growing industry across the world?
Well, it is undoubtedly travel and tourism industry which strengthens the economy by brining lots of foreign capital and generating way more local employment as well. When it comes to foreign and local tourists visiting various sightseeing, India isn't an exception as well, due to service providers charging "minimal" as a means to enhance their business further.

Yes, that can only be done by offering them facilities to ensure that they have cheap hotels booking online or facilitating them with the ways to get free rides on Uber. Yes, a percentage of the revenue goes to the government which naturally favors them further. The gist of the whole thing is that, everyone seems to be happy, right from the "common tourist" who feels special while being charged nominal in travel and tourism industry, to service providers and government. Providers like Uber charges minimal while travelling point to point in same city. Even their users are enjoying getting free rides on Uber.
Now, it shouldn't act as a surprise to you that Tourism actually contributes so much to the economy, like the whole IT sector.

The following fact will further make you proud as an Indian, as our beautiful country is counted to be the 38th most visited nation by the United Nations. Considering the ever rising strength of tourists, it necessitates me to classify them as following:-

Types of tourists

Almost 70% of Indian population resides in rural atmosphere with more or less natural habitat as population is sparse, which works towards preservation of culture and traditions. Government also boosts rural tourism with campaigns such as "Explore Rural India" to enhance rural tourism.
One can very well relate the extent of importance which travel and tourism industry has changed the face of the country for the better. Even the cheap service offered by the service providers has further boosted the industry.
