WTM news: Maharashtra showcases its diverse travel experiences

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

Maharashtra is a melting pot of culture, heritage sites, hill stations, and beaches. The state is the hub of Bollywood and houses the financial capital of India: Mumbai. 

The state is synonymous with vibrancy, and delicious local treats. Festivals become a gathering filled with colour, pomp and celebration. 

Vinita Vaid Singal, Secretary (Tourism), tourism & cultural affairs department for Maharashtra, said: “We are here to make the world aware that Maharashtra is one of the most important and probably of 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. 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 added: “Maharashtra specialises in celebrating 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.”
