Incredible places we have but not people. We have to learn lot from smaller countries who have incredible friendly attitude. Trying to fleece tourists is very common. Thinking every tourist is a millionaire is wrong.

Stable and corruptionless Govt. is a major factor. Narendra Midia s foreign tours and pushing tourism has made the difference. The numbers should grow year by year.

India is changing drastically under Modi. We need him for two more gen elections for India to go on a development road map.When people gave money and education things will change itself.

this 1 crore figure includes nri s visiting family and even people from Bangladesh etc. actual figures are much much lower. tourism has the highest potential but the lowest priority by successive Indian governments
