Holiday travellers exploring newer destinations

The festive holiday season has just begun and travellers from Andhra Pradesh are heading to some newer destinations, thanks to a slew of airfare deals and a combination of factors that has led to a good traction in Southeast Asian regions of Vietnam and Cambodia.

According to tour operators, the outbound leisure segment from cities like Visakhapatnam and Vijayawada in AP has registered more than 60 per cent bookings to States like Gujarat and Rajasthan this season as against Kerala that used to be the most preferred destination till last year.

“The travel trend this season has shifted towards Gujarat and Rajasthan. One of the reasons behind this is the attractive fares offered by airlines till the first week of September. For instance, a Vizag to Jaipur return fare in the beginning of September was Rs. 7,000 to Rs. 8,000 per head for travel in Dasera. For Gujarat, Dwaraka – Somnath – Porbandar – Gir circuit witnessed high number of bookings from AP,” Vijay Mohan, president of Tours and Travels Association of AP has told The Hindu. Diu is another destination that is coming up the travel list of people from the port city. Tour operators say that school trips have also shifted to the Gujarat market.
