Goa Promotes Monsoon Tourism in India

Goa, India’s popular beach destination has decided to go all out to promote monsoon tourism and to pull in tourists from all over. The coastal Indian state usually attracts beach lovers who book tickets on flights to the region only to revel in the place’s much famed amalgamation of sun, sand and surf. Such travellers are generally not too inclined to book tickets on flights headed for the state’s shores in the monsoon. However, Goan tourism industry, seem in a mood to change all that this time.

The authorities in the coastal province have launched several new attractions like white water rafting in the Mhadei Wildlife Sanctuary, something that is going to attract tourists to seek tickets for the place. Various other initiatives are being planned to convince people to grab tickets on flights to the smallest province of India. Even hotels are providing special packages for the slow season, making for a cheap holiday package for those booking flights to the destination.

The Indian state is also being promoted as monsoon wedding destination and for MICE (meetings, incentives, conference and exhibition) tourism. Industry experts believe that citizens from West Asian countries are expected to get hold of tickets on flights headed for Goa as their home country witnesses extreme heat during the period.

Goan authorities are also looking to encourage domestic tourists in India to board Goa flights or book train tickets and land here. Road shows and publicity campaigns are being organised in several states of India for the same.
