The focus of India is now on an image revamp. Talking about India’s image in the international circles, the initiatives taken by the Government seem to have worked and this has helped improve India's global ranking as a destination for tourists.
Our image as an ‘unclean nation, full of dirt’ has remarkably changed with the inculcation of programmes such as ‘Swacch Bharat’ and ‘Namami Gange'.
Also the image of India as a nation where women were considered unsafe is now drastically changing. All in all, change is on the rise, and tourists have started pouring in the country. But even today, India's tourism sector hasn’t realized half of its potential, which is evident from the fact that the city of New York receives more tourists than the whole nation of India.
So there is a huge market in place, with double the scope of increase. For a property owner whose property is traditionally rented or unused, this is the perfect time to start!
Starting a bed and breakfast can be a wonderful experience!
- Using the house to its full potential
- Companionship for empty nesters
- Earning hotel-like revenues not at hotel-like expenses
- Opportunity to earn extra money
- An opportunity to network with new people
- Helps you maintain your house well (it’s like paying yourself for cleaning your own house)
