New Tourist Hubs in Delhi
Recently, at the NRAI’s (National Restaurant Authority of India) 33rd Annual General Meeting, Shri Kapil Mishra, Minister of Tourism, Delhi Government has indicated that Food industry can act as a critical catalyst in boosting the growth of Tourism sector in India. Therefore, the ministry is eyeing at creating food hubs that can attract more tourists.
Dubai Tourism contributes more than what oil does for its GDP. Approx. 70 percent of NOMA visitors are foreigners. Hence, India, especially the national capital – Delhi too can walk the same trodden path. Needlessly, Travel Agents in Delhi NCR will get super-busy after these hubs are created.
These hubs will be nothing more than Food Hubs where a lot of restaurants will operate to satiate the taste buds. Every restaurant will showcase their extraordinary talent in culinary and beverage offerings to get more popular amongst the crowd, especially among the expats/ tourists. These hubs will somewhat be the clones of food-tourism hubs like Hauz Khas Village in South Delhi.
People travel far and wide to treat their eyes and soul and food is an obvious and critical catalyst for pulling crowd. There is a huge possibility that Travel Agencies in Delhi NCR will go mad with bookings poring in.
And, there is a forecast that roughly between 12 and 13 hubs are in the pipeline for being created. Now, you can imagine the probable influx of revenue generation.
Food-Tourism hubs look quite promising for the future of tourism sector. Let’s wait and watch how the plan A works.
