Rajasthan has become the second state in India along with Delhi to launch its Tourism App. The Rajasthan Tourism App was launched on World Tourism Day simultaneously by the Tourism department of Rajasthan and Delhi. Kerala was the first state in the country to launch its Tourism App at an earlier date.
Shikha Saxena, Deputy Director at the Regional Tourism Office in Udaipur, in an interaction with UdaipurTimes said that the Rajasthan Tourism App is designed to be one stop reference point for people traveling to Udaipur, Jaipur, Jaisalmer, Jodhpur, Bikaner, Ajmer and other tourist spots in Rajasthan. One of the initiatives taken by Shikha was to facilitate sticking posters carrying the QR Code of the app on public places, tourist spots and in hotel entrances and lobbies across Udaipur, so that tourists can download the App directly and take advantage of its multiple features, including an SOS service.
Features in the Rajasthan Toursm App
A one stop information kiosk on your fingertips is what the Rajasthan Tourism App is all about. From information on the nearest Tourist Support centre, SOS hotlink, tourist spots, booking tickets, travel agent information, guides information, to planning your entire trip (with tips) - all of it is available in the Rajasthan Tourism App, which is dynamic in nature - in that, information will be populated in the App through the backend time and again.
The "Near By" option on the App seeks tourist spots, recreational areas, fuel stations, Hotels, Hotspots, Schools, Police Stations, restaurants, etc. based on your location. While this App has been made from the perspective of enabling a new orbit in comfort for the tourists, it will also be a very handy tool for locals/residents of Udaipur, in that it has got a lot of local informaiton available for locations across Rajasthan, added Shikha Saxena.
The latest information on festivals, tours, tourist hotspots, museums, forts, restaurants, etc in Udaipur, Jaiselmer, Jodhpur, Jaipur, Barmer, Bikaner, Ajmer and all across Rajasthan si available on the App. The user can also get tips on planning their entire tour based on the locations and visit dates that have been input.
