Due to its close proximity with five countries, unique culture and traditions besides picturesque beauty of its mountains and lush green landscapes, northeast India could be an ideal tourist destination post-Covid, experts and administrators said on the final day of the North East Festival (NEF) in December.

The two-day 8th edition of NEF concluded after setting the NE growth agenda as its priority with businessmen, administrators and experts expressing their strong confidence on the travel and tourism industry’s revival in post Covid situation, by showcasing potentials of the region.

Assam Tourism Secretary Razvee Hussain said that Covid-19 can be a blessing in disguise. “All northeastern states can be a great tourism destination. Focus on tea tourism where old bungalows can get converted to boutique hotels. Experiencing the life of a tea planter here can be a tourist attraction. Chopper service availability from Guwahati to Kaziranga, Majuli etc will also help the tourism industry here,” he said.
