Bus Travel in Rajasthan going Hi Tech!

With GPS (Global Positioning Systems) installed on 1000 Rajasthan State Roadways Corporation Buses (RSRTC) the travelers to Rajasthan would witness travel in Rajasthan through public Transport taken to the next level. Rajasthan would yet again be the very first Indian State to bring joy of traveling in Rajasthan in Road in India after being the pioneer state to bring in the concept of luxury buses in the long intercity travel. With the luxurious buses from famous brands of VOLVO and Mercedes the Rajasthan Tourism is poised to gain.

The GPS would not only make the system efficient and well monitored but also the commuters in Cities Like Jaipur, Udaipur, Jodhpur, & Ajmer would have mounted LCDs in the bus stands telling the passengers the location and the details of the buses they are looking for.

Like the Indian Railway System of announcing the time tables, schedules and the expected arrival and departure of trains in India, the RSRTC would through the public information system would announce the exact time of arrival and departure of the buses to the travelers in English and Hindi.

The information would also be synced real time on the web portal. 

Much for the delight of the traveler of Rajasthan, road travel is coming of age. 

Welcome to Rajasthan or shall we say 'Padharo Mhare Des!!

Goa as an All Season Destination!

There has been concerted efforts by the Goanese State Government to make Goa an all season destination. Goa is heart throb in the winters for the travelers coming into India mostly from the Western Countries. 

The Goa in Winters is beckoning paradise but come Indian Tropical Summers & the fabled Indian Monsoon, Goa becomes gloomy. Though the Indians spirit never sees the grey monsoon as it throngs the shores of Goa in the Monsoon's too. The fares are low, the best of hotels welcome with open arms and the kids are holidaying or not faced with their exam times!  

The State Government is wooing the ones who would not consider Goa in monsoon. It is calling it as 'Raindrop Tourism'. Waterfalls rushing down the hills in Western Ghats, lush green forest lands and inland waterways are being looked upon as an alternative for beaches, which receive maximum footfalls in non-monsoon months. State Tourism minister Dilip Parulekar said "the government is now planning to develop waterfalls as tourist destinations. A master-plan is being prepared so that these places are made accessible for the visitors. The beaches get shut during monsoons leading to a lean season. “We want to change the concept that Goa is only for beaches. We have more variety of destinations to offer for the travellers,” he said. The foreign tourists usually pack-up for their homes during monsoons. The state is then entirely dependent on the domestic crowd. “Domestic tourists love to be with nature. We will provide them all the facilities so that they have a reason to arrive in Goa,” he said. The Ambolim waterfall in Maharashtra and the Dudhsgar waterfall on the Goa-Karnataka border are prime attraction during monsoons. Mr Parulekar said that Goa has the likes of Ambolim at several places in rural talukas, which can be explored for tourism purposes. The state government has already announced 50 per cent concession in luxury tax to hotels, which will help them to work out attractive monsoon packages.
