India’s appeal as a popular tourist destination has received a resounding boost. The Conde Nast Traveller UK has announced that India ranks sixth among the top ten destinations in its Annual Readers’ Travel Awards 2004. India’s ranking moved up three slots from number nine last year.
India had two other entries in the Top 100. Rajvilas Jaipur has been ranked No. 3 in the Overseas Leisure Hotels category for Asia, while Taj Exotica Resort & Spa, Maldives, ranked No. 3 in that category for the Africa, Indian Ocean & Middle East region.
