September 27, 2021: Exotic locales beget exotic stories! Stories of adventure, of togetherness, wonder, surprises, sports and much more. What makes these stories extraordinary is the setting you chose, the intricate exceptional spot in a state, somewhere that seems beyond the horizon- tourism opens your eyes to the majesty of the world that’s been off your radar all your life! In a world affected by Covid-19 pandemic, where almost two years of our lives were spent in lockdown, we are desperate for a break. So, nothing could be better than having a discussion on Tourism Day 2021 before the festive season in India, when the families plan holidays. However, amid the pandemic, just be in mind the Covid-19 protocols while hitting the road.
What is National Tourism Day?
India, a country where ethnicity, practice, culture, language, traditions, etc turns a new page with every kilometre as one moves from North to South, we have a lot to offer in the tourism industry. India being the 7th largest country in the world stands apart from the rest of the Asian continent. It has mountains and the sea, which makes the country a distinct geographical entity.
Every year, National Tourism Day is celebrated on January 25. This day is observed by the government to encourage tourism and explain the essential role of tourism in the growth of the country.
Theme of National Tourism Day 2021
This year, the theme of National Tourism Day is ‘Dekho Apna Desh’. Coronavirus pandemic has intensely affected the tourism sector due to the restrictions on travel. The Ministry of Tourism had organized seminars around the theme from January 21 to February 22, 2021.
India provides the experience of multicultural nuances and a rich heritage accompanied by beautiful attractions. The country is among the most popular tourist destinations in the world. Keeping such exquisite beauty behind the veils, is a sin in its own accord.
