Indian cities are fast becoming major tourism destinations for overseas travelers.
The popularity of India’s mega cities with overseas tourists is showing no signs of abating anytime soon if the latest research is anything to go by.
According to a joint report by Cushman & Wakfield (C&W) – the country’s leading real estate consultancy firm – and the Confederation of Indian Industries, within the next five or six years, 50,000 new hotel rooms will be built in Bengaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Hyderabad, Kolkata and Mumbai.
The hospitality and tourism sector has recorded steady growth over the last few years and 14,800 new rooms will have been constructed by the end of 2012.
Akshay Kulkarni, regional director at C&W, said “India’s hospitality sector has been witnessing interest from a variety of segments ranging from – wellness tourism, spiritual and pilgrimage tourism, apart from the traditional business or leisure travel.”
The atmosphere in each of the major cities is vastly different so it is no wonder that the demand is spread throughout India.
