In Rajasthan, different types of competitions, such as photo competitions promoting tourism, as well as tourism award presentations in areas such as ecotourism, are held on World Tourism Day. Other activities include free entries, discounts or special offers for the general public to any site of tourism interest to promote World Tourism Day on or around September 27.

  1. I attended the “World Tourism Day” celebrations at the Jawahar Kala Kendra, (JKK) yesterday evening. A day before I happened to see a very inconspicuous and indiscreet insertion about the above function in a local news paper. As I and my wife are a regular attendant in any of the functions at the JKK, Jaipur were totally disappointed at this showcasing of Rajasthan Tourism. There appeared to be a missing professionalism in organising this function and appeared more in design to appease a few government dignitaries (as seen by the number of red beacon cars). There was nothing to suggest that the tourists at large were informed through publicity as the crowd was the same as is seen in other routine functions at the JKK, viz., people residing in the immediate neighborhood of JKK. Most disappointing was the lack of press coverage the day after although there were a horde of photographers clicking away through out the programme. The programme was mediocre as compared to normal shows organised at the JKK. The feeling was the this programme was made in a hurry forsaking professionalism.
