Goa tourism plans to focus on new markets like Japan, US, Gulf and Southeast Asia for the next season.
Close to 14 travel agents and operators from the Gulf recently visited Goa on a familiarisation tour. Nikhil Desai, Goa’s tourism director said, they are hopeful of getting travellers from the Gulf states. “Our eco-tourism destinations will be the best bet as Gulf people visiting Goa will not be looking for malls to shop as the best malls are in the Gulf states.”
The state will continue to tap tourists from traditional source markets like UK, Germany, France, Finland, Switzerland and Sweden.
