We don’t need to sit back and substantiate the presence of immense number of attractions and sights that adorn India. That would mean only to argue on what has been proved well! However, since introspection and criticism are sometimes the best ways of becoming better, we do need to sit and think how we can make our "Incredible India” more of an eye candy in the eyes of International tourism. With a number of visa and other policies that have boosted the tourism of India, this is the best time to decide how our nation can become better and more attractive for the travelers who come here:

1. Create travelling experiences for tourists rather than just attractions

Travelling is an experience rather than just visiting attractions! In order to promote the tourism of India, we need to invest time and efforts in building travelling experiences for people brim with tour guides, activities for the children, culinary tours, interactivity for the tourist with the culture of the place etc. Most of our attractions are left to themselves and are not built up as experiences and memories to take back home. Further ideas such as India on shoestring, India in luxury, the royal India, urban India, the common man’s India, historical India and many more would help people in looking into attractions in a context rather than separate in themselves.

2. More of Hygiene and amenities for kids and disabled

Needless to say that we absolutely lack in these! Basic amenities such as restrooms near attractions, changing rooms at the beaches and garbage bins are what we lack presently. Further, even if some of our attractions might have those, they are left in horrible conditions enough to leave visitors puking. We need to learn a lot from the west in this case! Disabled access is something that we still need to explore and fix down. When it comes to travelling within the cities of India, public transport also need to be highlighted and informed so well that the travelers should not have any problem in exploring! What about Child freindly destinations? We definitely need to come up with more.

3. Preserving Historical Monuments

Any other nation in this world can hardly match up the number of historical monuments that dot the landscape of India. But they can’t match up the kind of creativity and inscriptions that goes into ruining those monuments! We seriously need to put punitive measures against anybody who does this. Further, our monuments also demand a lot of attention and resurrection to bring them out of obscurity.

4. Marketing Strategies for image formation

Believe it or not! When it comes to tourism, social media is the best recourse these days! Due to its phenomenal reception and quality, social media and marketing today are the giants in defining a tourist quotient of a city, state or a country.  From broadcasting ‘Incredible India’ campaigns abroad, holding tourism seminars or offering Indian locations with facilities to promote foreign film productions in the country, social media is the best option. Apart from that even our official tourist websites need to be updated to inform the readers and travelers well!

5. Friendly Reception

A friendly smile on the face of host at times gives the best whiff to tourism. And this is one thing that we can implement at our own level to ensure a hospitable image of India before others. Security concerns also go alongside. A country that serves well, looks well.

6. Promoting Festivals to enhance Indian tradition

We recognize Christmas with west, Tomatina festival with Spain and Rio carnival with Brazil! But, a country like India has such a plethora of festivals that merely one would not be able to sum up our diversity of culture and tradition. These festivals do add a dash of color and light when it comes to defining tourism in India. So let us just make them more popular and tourist friendly to offer a quintessential Indian experience to the travelers.

7. Adventure friendly infrastructure

India has yet to cover miles when it comes to offering secure adventure facilities to travelers. With more and more of people coalescing adventure and tourism, this is an essential infrastructure that we need to upgrade from its present sorry state.

8. Bollywood-The biggest storyteller of tourism in India

One of the Incredible India quotes states: "Its bit like a Bollywood dream sequence. Only, you are in it!” Since most of the nations know us through Bollywood, it is a great idea to use it as a beacon of our tourism!

We still need to explore the unseen and the unexplored in India. With so many virgin beaches and mountains gracing our land, there is still a lot to unravel before us and the world.

10. To understand how tourism can change the face of our nation

This should have been the first point! The day we understand how tourism can change the face of our nation, half of the battle will be won. It can definitely bring more value, income and an image to our nation and bring us in the top contenders for the list of travel destinations!
