Recently if you were watching media in India, you will be surprised to see plenty of tourism ads from all the nearby countries. You will see Malaysia – “Truly Asia”, Singapore, Thailand and others.
Last week during the state visit of New Zealand Prime Minister to India, apart from IT and investments, the big emphasis was on Tourism to NZ.
I wondered why the sudden love of the World towards India and Indian Tourist. According to this article, it turns out to be pure economics. Now it is not the “Japanese“ Global Traveller or the traveller from Asian Powerhouse “China“ who spend most. It is the Indian Tourist who is the biggest spender abroad – on an average $200 per day. WOW, who said India is poor!
