Variety of food delicacies, tasty food as well as reasonably priced food all over India is one of the main attraction for India’s Tourism that runs into few billions of dollars. The Hotels and the Restaurants are thriving in India, all over, and so long as the Private Sectors as well as Public Sectors work together in improving all the existing infrastructure, specially the health and hygiene precautions, more and more foreign tourists will find their way towards India not only for their Holiday Vacations, but also Business Vacations and even Medical Vacations.
The most important feature of India’s Tourism is good accommodation and decent food with attractive prices. But the most important feature lies in the people who are now educated in India well with the foreign tastes and qualities of life.
All Hotels in India do not have to be five star status that are exhorbitantly costly. Whether they are five star hotels or motels, clean environment, hygiene facilities and pleasing human atmosphere is all that is required to attract more and more people to visit India and avail of the food and other benefits that are available all over India.
We therefore strongly encourage Exhibitions relating to Food festivals by displaying variety of Indian food as well as the tastes that are now changing to International standards.
