India Tourism & Tour Industry is Gearing Up for Commonwealth Games 2010

New Delhi, India (PressExposure) September 14, 2009 -- The Commonwealth Games 2010 will be held at New Delhi, the Capital of India. Delhi is a modern metropolis that has hosted Asian Games twice before – in 1951 and in 1982. After nearly three decades, it will host the prestigious sports event in October next year. The prospects of international travelers and tourists who will come to India during the period is already keeping India tourism and hospitality industry with its allied sectors on toes.

Besides those who will come here to participate and watch the sports events held here, experts in tourism industry bet that other tourists will also pre-pone and postpone their visit to India to coincide with the Commonwealth Games so that they can optimize their tour experience. Hospitality, aviation and hotel industries in Delhi and National Capital Region (NCR) are developing their infrastructure, improving their service quality and facilities, and promoting their brands at a record pitch. Tour operators and hotel booking agents expect a sharp rise in the sale of Golden Triangle tours, Rajasthan Tours, and North India tours too.

Other major tourist attractions of India that include Taj-fame Agra, Jaipur, Mumbai, Goa, Bengaluru, and Cochin are also preparing for the influx of tourists during Commonwealth Games. Commonwealth Games 2010 are also being seen as a grand opportunity for promoting India Tours among international tourists. Government is going through all possible antics to project an image of clean, green, safe and friendly India that is easily accessible by world-class transport systems.

Rich historical architecture and cultural diversity of Delhi sets an ideal base to arouse curiosity in tourists about the splendor and opulence that lies in the royal forts and palaces of Rajasthan. Rajputs of Rajasthan were either friends or foes of great Mughals who dominated Agra, Delhi and surrounding areas. The most lavish palaces can be seen in the princely states that chose to have friendly ties with Mughals but most legendary forts can be found in the regions where bloody battles were fought and Rajputs refused to let Mughals enter their territory.

India Travel agencies are preparing specialized tour packages for the Commonwealth Games of 2010 that feature quick-to-reach destinations such as Taj Mahal, Khajuraho Temples, Golden Temple of Amritsar, Ranthambore and Corbett National Parks and Tiger Reserves, and idyllic mountain resorts like Shimla, Mussoorie, Nainital, and Manali in Uttaranchal, Himachal Pradesh, and Jammu & Kashmir.

With high hopes set on 2010 Commonwealth Games, India tourism industry is also preparing itself to cash the opportunity to promote lesser-known tourist destinations such as Northeast Vacations, Virgin Islands of Andaman and Nicobar, Monasteries of Leh and Ladakh, and Pilgrimage Tours that offer true taste of culture and traditions in India.

Travel experts say that since the sports event is to be held in October, it gives an excellent opportunity to tourism industry to prop up its Fairs and Festivals Tours. October and November is the time of festivities in India. Pushkar Fair Tours, Durgapuja and Diwali Tours, Mysore Dussehra Tours, and several other such packages will be able to attract foreign visitors to India by offering them an opportunity to share the colorful and musical celebrations of Indian festivals and observe the traditions and lifestyle of people from close.
