Looking Up To The New Year Of Travel

The Government of India has declared 2009 as the 'Visit India Year'. This may not mean much to the domestic tourist though. It would mean the tourism department will have more budget allocations for their roadshows and publicities abroad, and more foreign travellers might visit India. The government has also announced incentives to repeat visitors coming to India. See more on the story.

At a personal level, I am already making some travel plans for the coming year. I will begin the new year with a 2-week visit to MP - a state with many treasures but less popular with tourists. I hope to spend a few weeks in Sikkim and Garhwal Himalayas in mid-2009 and a trip to South East Asia in later parts of the year.

2008 has been good for me in terms of travel. I visited Rajasthan early in the year, followed by Tamil Nadu. During the middle of the year, I made a long trip to Ladakh and then to Goa last month. I am going to end the year with visit to MP, which will stretch to early next year. There was an opportunity to visit the whole of India on a three month trip which I had to let go due to personal reasons.

How has 2008 been for you when it comes to travel? What are your plans for next year? Do leave your comments.

I am amazed that u travel so much and have already made plans for the next year. Ever since i have taken full responsibility of my family business and my marriage, i've had to compromise on my travel. My plans for 2009 include a small quiet trip in jan with my wife to wyanad or silent valley or someplace abroad. In april i am planning to hit lakswadeep with about 10 members of my family! Hope everything goes fine. Wishing u a travelollicking 2009. All the best!
