Monsoon Tourism

India being a favorite tourist destination for the travelers is much visited by tourists from all over the world who travel to the various hotspots of the country during the various seasons. While during the summer season, many such travelers prefer to visit the many hill and beach destinations of the country, during the winter season, they prefer to travel to Rajasthan and other such destinations. Maybe, that's why these places remain rather heavily occupied during such times.

But there are many tourists who prefer to travel to India and its various destinations during the monsoon season. They seem to know and appreciate the beauty of Indian monsoons. Perhaps, they know that the monsoon season is the best time to really explore a country like India. 

Such tourists' seem to know that after the long summer months when the heat and the dust ruled the roost, the appearance of monsoons gives much comfort. The word "monsoon" seems to much inspire them. The magical word itself seems to make them happy. 

Indeed, when during the monsoons the stimulating smell of the dry earth getting drenched invades one's nostrils, one feels one with the world. During this season, small children, much like peacocks, dance with joy in the lanes, in the streets and in the muddy fields welcoming the rains. The magic of monsoon certainly works on everyone, including the monsoon-loving tourists. 

Such tourists growing fondness for monsoons seems to have brought focus on tourism of a different kind--monsoon tourism. Tour operators, to make monsoon tourism a huge success, offer attractive monsoon holiday packages to the monsoon loving tourists. This much suits and attracts the travelers--especially those on a budget. 

Besides being a blessing for the budget conscious travelers, monsoon tourism appears to have proved to be a blessing for the Indian tourism industry also, which normally witnesses a sharp drop in the number of travelers at the end of the summer season, once the clouds appear in the sky overhead.
