Another thing that has come into the light is the orientation of the tourists coming into the state. The ET reports says that despite Government has many plans for the tourism development in the state, the major chunk of domestic tourists comes for the offshore casinos and due to that, it has become male-dominated tourism destination like Thailand and Bangkok.
According to the famous fashion designer and now a writer too, Mr. Wendell Rodricks says that Goa has a choice, either to become a male-dominated tourist destination like Bangkok or become, like Singapore, a place for family holidays. It is our government’s fault that it has not yet outlined what kind of tourists it wants to attract.
The plans of the government or the tourism department are bleak about what kind of tourists they are looking for, and until unless some visionary comes on the helm of the tourism industry, the things will keep moving directionless. What is your opinion on this??
