New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi Sunday sought to promote India`s northeast as a tourist destination and urged people to visit the region if they wanted to see the beauty of nature.

Modi said the northeast region is as good as Dubai and Singapore and went on to equate the region with the Taj Mahal.

In his monthly radio address `Man Ki Baat`, Modi said the northeast has a lot of potential and described his recent visit to the region as a "heart warming" experience.

"People sometime ask, `Modi ji, don`t you get tired?` I say that it feels there is no tiredness after visiting the northeast."

"People there gave me love. The sense of belongingness they showed towards me was heart-warming.”

The northeast region has eight states -- Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, Tripura and Sikkim.
