The cradle of ancient civilization with a rich cultural heritage, India has been a travel magnet for global tourists since ages. Until about a decade ago, Indian travellers would primarily visit popular tourist destinations and the means of travel planning were most often references from friends and offline travel agents. Today, the digitally-savvy Indian traveller is stepping out to explore the country far and wide armed with their smartphones.

Be it to meet their loved ones, explore a new place, learn about a new culture or to seek a deeper understanding of faith – there are innumerable reasons why people choose to travel. Infact on this Independence Day, Prime Minister Narendra Modi appealed to all Indians to travel to at least 15 domestic destinations by 2022, exhorting them to discover India more deeply. This couldn’t have come at a better time when more and more Indians are seen prioritising travel – be it the young corporate employees, couples, families or the footloose older generation.

While a holiday may always be on the minds of people, the tough part is deciding where to go, planning how to stitch all the elements of a holiday together, booking all aspects related to travel and finding real-time help in case you need support. But in today’s always-on online world – help is just a few screen taps away. Online travel companies like MakeMyTrip which serve as one-stop-travel-shop for Indians have been swift off the block to address this gap. To make it convenient for travellers across demographic sets, interest groups and budgets – the company has rolled out a campaign #MyIndiaMyTripsto inspire and assist Indian travellers to plan their travel and explore the best of India

The campaign has been thematically designed to address varied interests of Indian travellers and celebrates the country’s cultural heritage, rich architectural brilliance, and natural landscapes covering close to 100 domestic destinations. Speaking on the idea behind the campaign, Sunil Suresh, Chief Marketing Officer, MakeMyTrip said “With its beautiful natural landscapes, rich cultural diversity, 7500 kilometre coastline and a multitude of cuisines, customs and art that changes every few hundred kilometres – there is no dearth of places to visit as a tourist in India. #MyIndiaMyTrips is a concerted effort to inspire, encourage and assist more and more Indians to explore their own country.”

Whatever kind of traveller you may be, India has something to offer suiting everyone’s pallatte- whether you yearn for the solitude of the mountains or wish to bask in the sun on one of India’s many spectacular beaches, India has it all. An adventurer and nature lover can travel to the foothills of Himalayas, green pastures of Wayanad, wildlife reserves like the Sundarbans National Park and Bandhavgarh Tiger Reserve – the list goes on...if one fancies a tan, then the southern and western beaches of Andamans, Goa and Gokarna have enough and more options to begging to be explored. But that’s not all, a history enthusiast will find a never-ending list of destinations that can allow them to traverse through generations to unravel the greatest mysteries of Indian history. With #MyIndiaMyTrips as a ready reckoner, travellers can choose from specially curated easy-to-book holiday packages across these many categories. Now, travellers have to look no further to plan and book a holiday of their choice.
