Just a poll…

Can Arunachal become global tourist 'Hot-Spot'?

To catapult this state into a major tourist destination, in recent years the government has been organizing Mahotsavas and Festivals in the state. After the "Buddha Mahotsava" at Tawang and 2 days "Youth Festival" at Mebo, "Siang River Festival 2007" kick-started at Tuting the day before yesterday. The aim of these mega events as the government puts-is to attract tourists-both domestic and foreign and to woo potential investors to this state.

But with poor infrastructure, all sorts of formalities to enter the state like ILP (Inner Line Permit), RAP (Restricted Area Permit), PAP (Protected Area Permit) etc, and lack of professional approach towards promotion of tourism sector of the state (the official website of Tourism Department, Government of Arunachal Pradesh hasn't so far mentioned anything about the ongoing Siang River Festival), can Arunachal become tourist 'Hot-Spot'?

Or do you feel just by inviting Bollywood Celebrities and Political Bigwigs (as the government is doing now) would attract tourists-both domestic and foreign to this state?

Just put in your comments.
