Maharashtra Tourism, in partnership with Meraki Communications (CAB Experiences), displayed the diversity and legacy of the vibrant state to international tourists at the World Travel Market (WTM) in London which was held from November 4 to 6.

Vinita Vaid Singal, Secretary (Tourism), Tourism & Cultural Affairs Department, Government of Maharashtra said, “On behalf of Government of Maharashtra, we are here to make the world aware that Maharashtra is one of the most important and probably the best holiday destinations within India. Three things that all Europeans look at are experiential tourism, safety and security and excellent infrastructure. We have it all in Maharashtra and considering all these factors, we are here to remind the world that we are one of the best holiday destinations around the world. We can curate all kinds of experiential travel including forts, landscape, spiritual and nature and wildlife trail. We have beautiful weather which lasts for nine months and monsoon is the best period for adventure tourism, trekking, cultural travel, rural experiences and seeing the best of Maharashtra.”

She further added, “Maharashtra specialises in celebrating each and every festival across religions, thereby providing an opportunity to enjoy a lot of cultural festivals. Apart from these experiences, Maharashtra also offers educational and medical tourism. So right from the sea to the sky, the state offers everything to the travellers.”
