This is a very important segment of tourism and it makes significant contribution to the GDP. But travelling in this world has several faces that require special attention like the connectivity problem faced by different parts of the country due to the disparity in physical and geographical structure. Apart from the connectivity problem there are many issues of security and crime related issues that need to be taken care of. Also there are several problems related to the accommodation facilities that have to be taken care of. All these features are the reason behind the recent recession that has affected the travel industry.
There is a great demand for services like hotels and other accommodations and hence the prices are skyrocketing.
