The country is focusing on the Gen Z travellers using digital technology, and by showcasing Instagrammable destinations. Besides this, wedding is another area of interest with its hotels and resorts offering variety of spaces for organising different rituals, and improving on offering Indian cuisine, especially vegetarian.
