A new emerging market for certain products
5 years 2 months ago #258
Tourism stimulates creation of new markets for the domestic industry. According to a recent survey, tourists reserve about 33% of their money for on-the-spot purchases of national products and other locally available handicrafts. The products purchased by the tourists are part of the export trade, wherein the exporter need not pay any transportation charges. Also there is no risk that is commonly associated with international trade.
There are certain products which are internationally popular and are much sought after by the tourist. For example, the watches of Switzerland, silk and nylon from Italy, wines and costumes of France, woolen goods of Scotland, household gadgets of Scandinavia, and carpets of India are famous all over the world and are in high demand.
In Kerala package tour operators always take a tourist through all the prominent curio shops. Along the long beach front of the beach resort in Kovalam, you can see a wide range of exquisite handicrafts from all over the country. A tourist need not strain much to get the best handicrafts sourced from different destinations. In some shops skilled artisans will even demonstrate the complicated process involved in creating such handicrafts.
The tourism promotion council has now taken the initiative to promote the erstwhile art forms of the state. Thus, when a tourist avails a tour package, he can enjoy the cultural diversities, art forms and other local games during the cultural evenings. Some of the art forms have survived mainly due to the demand for such cultural extravaganzas from the international tourist. Otherwise, due to the cultural invasion, the local art forms would have met with a sad demise.
Before availing a package tour, always study the entire details offered in the package. When you compare a set of different packages, you will be able to analyze the price differences and also the list of destinations covered, the amenities on offer and also the cultural forms that you can witness while unwinding after a day’s travel. Thus, you can zero in on the best package suited to your purse.
