Rajasthan Tourism pitches state as year-round destination
Tourism in Rajasthan offers visitors a captivating journey into a realm of mystery and excitement. While many associate Rajasthan with winter tourism, it boasts a unique charm that beckons travelers even during the summer months. Dalip Singh Rathore, Deputy Director, Rajasthan Tourism Department, says that seasons no longer affect tourism in in the state.
There is arrival of tourists in the state throughout the year. This trend is being seen among tourists post COVID period, he said.
According to Rathod, the autumn season in the state also draws a lot of visitors because domestic travellers, particularly those from southern states, find the period between September and October and just before Diwali to be particularly convenient. In addition, tourism in Rajasthan is at its peak from October to March.
Rathore goes on to say that Rajasthan has all the necessary components for a successful tourism industry, including famous landmarks and heritage areas, unique heritage villages and craft villages, experiential tourism, desert tourism, adventure tourism, wildlife and ecotourism, weekend gateway tourism, religious tourism, wedding tourism, wellness tourism (medical tourism), rural tourism, and film tourism, among others. These factors combine to make Rajasthan the first choice for MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences and Exhibitions) tourism. Between September and October, Rajasthan’s weather is temperate. Since there is no longer a wedding season, hotels now offer inexpensive packages to draw customers.
