Singapore, the United States and China lead inbound traveller interest in India in 2015, says a study by user review and hotel meta-search website TripAdvisor.
International traveller interest in India is on the rise, signaling good news for the country’s tourism industry, reports The Economic Times.
A recent study by TripAdvisor reveals that travellers from Singapore, the United States and China show the largest increase in interest year-over-year in Indian destinations on the site. The study also highlights review trends from visiting markets on Indian hospitality businesses.
Rising interest across Asia indicates positive growth in inbound tourism to India, with Asian countries accounting for six of the top 10 markets showing an increase in the share of visitor sessions looking at Indian destinations. However, what’s significant to note is the increase in interest from long-haul markets including the United States (13%) and the Caribbean (4%), signaling healthy inbound travel trends for India.
“We’re seeing growth in interest not just from Asian countries but also from long haul inbound markets with domestic travel being as strong as ever,” Nikhil Ganju, country manager, TripAdvisor India said in a press statement.
