According to a report by times now digital, we don’t know exactly when that day arrived. However, in 1948, a tourist traffic committee was established to promote tourism.

India is one of the oldest civilizations in the world and offers diversity and multiculturalism. The country has a rich heritage and attractive places to visit, making it a popular tourist destination.

The day is celebrated in the country to raise awareness about the growth prospects of the tourism sector and its impact on the economic development of India.

How the day was celebrated last year

Last year, National Tourism Day was observed virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Ministry of Tourism organized seminars between January 21 and February 22, 2021 around the theme ‘Dekho Apna Desh’.

The tourism sector has been extremely affected due to the pandemic which has induced restrictions on travel around the world. Reports suggest that experts, however, expect the sector to return with a bigger impact globally.
