-Advance bookings have been received for the entire month of January.
-It is being expected that tourism will get back on tracks.
The arrival of vaccination in India has created new hopes for the tourism industry. It is being expected that the tourism sector will finally gain the most required speed and the industry will get back on tracks.
Udaipur is also smiling with new hopes. Reports reveal that tourists did advance bookings for the festive season of Sankranti followed by the national celebration day, the Republic Day on 26th January. It has also been informed that the tourists are now demanding longer duration packages as they wish to enjoy a good vacation which had almost become a dream during the lockdown period with the attack of covid-19.
Usually tourists ask for 2N/3D packages, but with the arrival of vaccine 4N/5D packages are being demanded. Taxi services and hotel bookings are being done in advance. Tour operators are expecting a jump of 25 percent in the businesses as train and flight services are also increasing.
Tourists from Delhi, Maharashtra, Gujarat, West Bengal, Chennai, Hyderabad and Haryana are making enquiries regarding packages and booking cabs for their trips. Researches also reveal that Udaipur is the one of the most demanded destinations by tourists apart from Jaipur in Rajasthan state. The timings of various tourist centres are being enquired along with the curfew timings based on which tourists are planning their trips.
Now that the flights and trains are operational, the city is witnessing a good number of tourists daily. It is yet another issue that traffic has increased in every part of the city. Hoping that social distancing will not go for a toss and people will not become negligent because of the vaccine. Under any circumstances, all mandates must be followed. No entry without mask, adequate social distancing are a must as the vaccination process will take time. Public must understand that 2 doses of the vaccine have a gap of 28 days and both the doses have to be taken to be completely safe. One must not rush with the thought that the vaccination process will eliminate the risk. Prevention is better than cure.
