Bikaner (Rajasthan), Dec 31 (ANI): Bikaner is playing a perfect host to tourists for the New Year celebrations as the desert city, located 320 kilometres from Jaipur, is bustling with party hoppers.

The number of domestic tourists is very high as compared to their international counterparts who have thronged here for recreational activities like camel safari and folk dances.

The calm and serene environs are luring a lot of tourists that gives them time to relax as well as enjoy at the same time.

Khunga, a tourist from Holland, said that she likes to watch and also participate in folk dance in Bikaner.

“We are celebrating New Year in Jaipur in India,” said Sara, a German tourist.

The city boasts of lots of forts, palaces and temples, which play a major tourist attraction.

Rajasthan, is home to magnificent palaces, sand dunes, flora and fauna, and rich culture has witnessed a spurt in tourism.

Analysts, however, say Indian tourism suffers from poor marketing with sectors unable to exploit the potential of the country’s snow-clad Himalayas, forests, palaces and sun-soaked beaches. (ANI)
