Diwali 2022 Witness Rise in Tourism Bookings
OYO’s ‘Festive Season Report 2022’ showed a 108 percent rise in demand for Diwali. Daniel D’Souza, President & Country Head, Holidays, SOTC Travel noted that Vietnam, Cambodia, and Australia emerged as new destinations because of the T20 World Cup.
Post pandemic, people are flocking to remote regions and second and third cities, and this festive season, most locations across the country were full, according to Pradeep Shetty, President, HRAWI.
Rajesh Magow, MakeMyTrip Co-Founder and Group CEO said that the demand for short-haul destinations like Singapore rose 30 percent, with Maldives 15 percent, and Mauritius 10 percent. Visa-free places like Oman, which needs a long-term US/Schengen visa, are doing well.
