26th Sep 2011 by Travelsphere
Escorted tours of India could become an easier and more enjoyable option in the near future as a result of major infrastructure improvements throughout the country.
International travellers flying to New Delhi can now pass through the brand new terminal at the city's airport.
Tourism secretary Rajen Habib Khwaja, who was speaking at a press conference for the country's promotional agency Incredible India, also pointed out that new bases have been developed in the cities of Hyderabad and Bangalore.
"The airport terminals at other important gateways are also being upgraded," he added.
"We have expanded the metro network and increased room inventory in Delhi. Our endeavour remains to upgrade the infrastructure and other facilities to the world-class level."
According to official figures from the UN World Tourism Organisation, Asia and the Pacific welcomed 14 per cent more visitors between January and August 2010 than in the same period last year, making it one of the world's fastest-growing regions.
Travellers can arrange escorted tours of India to visit some of the country's most exciting destinations and attractions, such as Kerala, Delhi and the Taj Mahal.
