To celebrate the passion for travel and tourism, India observes National Tourism Day, each year on January 25. However, one may ask why call it 'tourism' day? And this is because travelling commonly means a journey of a single or a group of people from one place to another. Also, tourism is one of the most prominent sectors which accounts for the movement of citizens within and outside the country and hosting travellers from other countries to our own in huge numbers.
It is a booming sector and has the potential to advance and grow like no other, as experts say.
