Rajasthan tour and travels sector after covid-19
When the globe was the pandemic free the cities like Jaipur, Jodhpur, Udaipur, Jaisalmer and Kota used to be tourist most favorite and visited places but as the cases skyrocketed this footfall decreased day by day.
Even after various unlock stages one of the most reasons of that folks don’t seem to be visiting any places is Lack of Confidence.
Rajasthan is thought for its cultural heritage and due to lockdown various famous heritages like Chittorgarh fort, Kumbhalgarh fort, Ranthambore fort, Jaisalmer fort, Amber fort has been closed for public.
It has been an economic setback in the tourism industry. The trains, national and international flights are all at rest so how will the business resume when people are hesitant to travel.
