Karnataka to launch travel guide
Bangalore, Nov 03: Any tourist visiting Karnataka will now have all the travelling tips on hand, from the distance between the various tourist destinations to details on accommodation facilities and package tours, a top official
of Karnataka Tourism Department said.
'The Karnataka Traveller', a compendium of information on tourism infrastructure in the state would be launched on November six, to facilitate tourists visiting the state, I M Vittalamurthy, Tourism Commissioner and Managing Director of Karnataka State Tourism Development Corporation told PTI.
This handbook is being developed based on the tourist themes of Karnataka including heritage, wildlife, beaches, hill stations, waterfalls, adventure, festivals and so on, he said.
Each segment would detail out the various tourist locations, how to access them, must-see attractions, accommodation options with tariff rates, reservation contacts, tour operator contacts and so forth, Vittalamurthy said.
This level of detailing would help tourism trade in other markets evaluate the opportunity that exists in Karnataka and reach out directly to players in this market for business development, he said.
The Traveller would also be a perfect guide for the ever increasing number of independent travellers for whom such information will be invaluable, he said.
In addition to special sections on Bangalore, Mysore, Hampi Coorg, shopping and cuisine, the handbook would also feature relevant information on oft-spoken Kannada phrases, traditional customs, list of public holidays and festivals,
