The Traditional concept of Tourism is well known by the people, which includes: Luxurious Hotels, Special places to Visit. Specially in a country like India the list of such places is never ending. We have quite a long list of such places – starting from the Taj Mahal, Eastern Coastal Line, The Breathtaking beauty of Himalayas, the western deserts etc. But that period is long gone when tourists used to visit such places merely to Eat, Drink & Merrymaking, this modern period calls for improvisation.
Many tourists want to learn & explore more about the people they meet & the places they visit. This indicates that the present day tourism is more ‘Knowledge Oriented‘ or ‘Cultural Tourism‘. This is where we have an advantage over the others, Udaipur is blessed with all the characteristics which will undoubtedly make us a leader in the present world of Tourism.
We have so much to offer to the people – almost every place, palace and lakes has a story associated with it, and the Modern Tourism demands exploration and learning, this is where we take the lead. Secondly, the Rich Heritage and culture adds to the increased interaction between tourists and local people. The tourists get a glimpse of the traditional life-style and culture and this is what matters. These small interactions, experiences are preserved by the tourists and these small things leave a impression upon the tourists which actually shapes the image of any place.
Ways to promote Tourism :
Multimedia presentations can be made available in the top tourist spots. These MM presentations would include topics like music, culture, history, biodiversity etc.
A Special emphasis to highlight the Cultural Tourism and Knowledge Based Tourism should be made in order to support them.
