different from the traditional concept of
tourism.

people – as there is a need among people
to know about other cultures and folk art.

we shall carry out comprehensive
marketing survey and marketing research
to uncover human needs and aspirations
regarding cultural tourism.

method tools will enable us to understand
potential market and will help us in
devising appropriate marketing mix.

places and their culture and to experience the
culture – a unique effort in itself. It will also
include our arrangement regarding their stay,
food, comfort and entertainment.
