ADTOI welcomes move to start luxury Ramayan cruise on Saryu River

The Association of Domestic Tour Operators (ADTOI) has welcomed the move by the Shipping Ministry to start luxury Ramayan cruise on the Saryu River in Uttar Pradesh. 

Commenting on this development by the Union Shipping Minister Mansukh Mandaviya, PP Khanna, President, ADTOI said, “This is one of the best initiatives taken by the Shipping Ministry. We welcome this move, and would appreciate if the government involves domestic tour operators in the booking and execution process in the new normal. After leisure travel, tourists are yearning for visits to pilgrimage destinations after a difficult 2020.”

Khanna was of the view that this move will also create awareness about the Hindu culture and the religious significance of the various ghats dotting the Saryu River in Ayodhya. “The government should look at this initiative as a means of promoting tourism in Ayodhya and local employment. Moreover, it will introduce tourists to the local cuisine which will be a different experience altogether.”

He stated that with the pandemic bringing about importance of sanitisation and maintaining social distance, it needs to be seen how the government implements this plan. Khanna is of the opinion that with domestic tourism as the way forward, it is important for governments and stakeholders to curate such new experiences to offer a holistic experience to tourists and pilgrims alike.
