Digital advances in the way Indians plan and execute travel plans with their families has witnessed a fabulous evolution over the last few years.

The delicate balance between acquiring information and making short/long haul travel plans online has been an encouraging trend. This has chalked a path of responsible growth strategies too. ‘Tourism and the Digital Transformation’ is the theme of World Tourism Day (WTD) this year of 2018. It is interesting to see the online impact in India wherein the bridge between the rural sector with the ever-growing urban travel demands have been beautifully established digitally.

Digital pathways have steadily and surely opened a new window for Indian travellers giving rise to employment opportunities across the country. Add to it the fantastic time-saving measures of Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Reality that have revolutionised the way tourism projects its amazing offerings and gives reasons to explore further.

As per the United Nations initiative, World Tourism Day can help to further explore the opportunities provided to tourism by technological advances. Let’s join in and ride the wave today.
