Delhi, India’s historical capital is about to make it into the list of ‘Top 10 Popular Destinations in the World’ because of its enriched culture and heritage through the ages. By Ritika Dixit
Known to be the ‘Heart of the Nation’, Delhi has been named as one of the destinations to be included in the list of ‘Top 10 Popular Destinations in the World’. The report is according to data published by Euromonitor International. The UK-based global market research company reported that currently Delhi ranks at the 11th position on the list of top 100 destinations in the world, but will be moved up to the eighth spot owing to the attention the country has received for its yoga retreats and Ayurveda practices.
One of the main reasons for the average growth of over 25% in terms of international tourists is world-class airports and a vast connectivity network. Airports with air trains connecting the terminals in the coming time are an added reason for the ease of movement for the tourists.
Delhi has something for everyone. The city’s richness in art, culture and heritage goes hand-in-hand with it being a technology and business hub. Tourists flock to historical monuments like the Qutub Minar and the Lal Qila in large numbers every day. The Garden of Five senses, the Lodhi Gardens, the Buddha Jayanti Park and Nehru Park makes Delhi famous amongst nature lovers. Delhi is also packed with some of the most stunning temples, mosques, shrines and Gurdwaras. It is well-connected to cities like Agra, Lucknow, Jaipur and Amritsar making it a must-visit for Indian amateur travellers who wish to travel the rest of the country. No other city in India will give you so much all at once.
Other countries on the list include Bangkok, London, Macau, Singapore, to name a few with Hong Kong topping the list. Thanks to the booming tourism industry, we hope Delhi keeps climbing up the ladder!
