Tourism in India - additional information

Tourism is a growing industry in India, with people from all over the world traveling there to experience the country’s natural beauty and visit its vast array of states and their differing cultures and climates. Many are also attracted by India’s famous landmarks such as the Taj Mahal and Khajuraho Temples. The largest number foreign tourist arrivals are usually seen in December and January during the cooler winter months when temperatures are more bearable. In 2016, India’s tourism industry was expected to directly contribute 71.7 billion U.S. dollars to the country’s economy, and this figure was forecasted to rise to 148.2 billion by 2027.

India’s hotel industry also appears to be benefitting from increasing tourism. In the first quarter of 2015, hotel occupancy rates were higher than they were during the same months of the previous year. According to online reviews left by global travelers, Sajhome, a budget hotel located in Fort Kochi in the state of Kerala, was the hotel with the best service in India as of April 2014.

It is not only the number of inbound tourists that is growing in India; Indian nationals are traveling more too. Departures of nationals grew from just 4.42 million in 2000 to more than 20 million in 2015. However, far fewer Indian nationals travel internationally than domestically – domestic tourist visits exceeded one billion for the first time in 2012.
