The day is a year marked to create awareness of tourism products and their impact on India’s economy. Tourism plays a very crucial role in the growth and development of India’s economy.

National Tourism Day is celebrated every year on the 25th of January in India.

Significance of National Tourism Day

National Tourism Day is observed to cultivate awareness about the importance of Tourism in India. Over a period India has attracted many tourists from across the globe for its unique tourism products like cultural, nature, heritage, rural, sports, historical, cruise, medical, and eco-tourism.
In 1958, the government realized the importance of Tourism in India and its prospects. This led to the creation of a separate department of tourism and a ministry. The solemn purpose of creating a separate department for tourism was to protect the national heritage while making them tourist-friendly destinations in the country. National Tourism Day observed in India helps boost tourism while creating awareness.
Every year, the 25th of January is celebrated as India’s National Tourism Day, an incredible way to spread awareness about the importance of traveling and protecting nature.
The subcontinent has several things to offer, vast beaches with glistening sand, magnificent mountains covered in snow, and adventurous forests boasting rare and beautiful flora and fauna.
Tourism in India can be boasted of its massive coastal line, snow-capped to lush green mountains, intriguing forests, fauna and flora, heritage and culture, and the vibrancy of festivals celebrated in the country.
