Strength of India for tourism:

Strength of India for tourism Country of rich heritage and traditions having a vast and varied history . Places of ancient civilization and settlements dating back to several centuries present in India. Unity in Diversity i.e.. Multicultural people staying together in the same country . One of the fastest growing economies of the world . India has been maintaining good and cordial relationship with different countries which helps the people of those countries to get the visas easily to visit India.


Weakness Insufficient standard hotels in the country leading to the problem of accommodation for the visiting tourists. Lack of proper infrastructure . Poor health, lack of hygiene and proper sanitation among majority of people especially in the rural parts of the country. Incidents of local people harassing and torturing the visiting tourists especially the foreign tourists in different parts of the country.


Threats Terrorism- Incidents like 26/11, 11/7 have an impact on the psyche of the visiting tourists . These incidents dramatically reduces the foreign tourist arrivals in India . The increasing Naxalite activities and constant Maoist attacks in the country is not helping the cause either. Diseases in recent years such as Dengue, Chikungunya and Swine Flu are causing the tourists to stay away from visiting different parts of the country . Increasing competition from other exotic countries. Ex- Singapore, Hong Kong etc.
