The travel industry in India has evolved over the years. It has become far more experiential; with a variety of segments such as culinary tours, sports and adventure travel, photography , music, literary and study tours, etc that have emerged.
With these segments, Indians have increasingly started viewing travel as a necessity, often opting for 2-3 short breaks along with a long leisurely vacation every year. Today Indians are not solely looking at a destination as a 'go to holiday spot', they want to get away from their mundane routines and are looking at a more power packed, fun-filled experience.

It signifies how travelling is one of the best ways of gaining new experiences. It further enlightens one with diverse cultures which fosters new learnings.
