India tours & travel - 50 million tourists by 2020, UNWTO

World rebounded from economic slowdown in an apt manner. India too is making magnificent claims as it confirms its superiority in wake of global tourism. Travelers are set to make India great in terms of tourism as there are strong indications of them coming to the Indian vicinities with greater zeal and in great numbers.

Looking at the statistics pertaining to international tourist arrivals into Asia, we find that it has new record standing at 204 million last year. This is up from 181 million in 2009. India, according to UNWTO, will account for 50 million outbound tourists by 2020.

The phenomena can be seen in two ways round. If India is attracting larger audience of travelers, more Indians are going abroad on vacations to get their travelers urges satisfy. As Asia gears up for this global economic recovery trend, India reigns supreme especially when it comes to larger masses of travelers to its vicinities. Statistics speak volumes to substantiate this claim. There is a sudden spurt of tourists visiting Malaysia from India the number of which rose from 45,000 to 6,90,849 in 2010. Unprecedented growth of 17.1 per cent could be witnessed that makes India gain confidence in wake of slow economic activity in the rest of the world.

India, on the other hand, in wake of summers, is set to attract more tourists to its vicinities as we take into consideration the The United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) recent statistics into account that says that a growth of 13 per cent in tourist arrivals can be seen.
