KATHMANDU: The arrival of tourism season (October–November) has once again created a buzz in the Nepali tourism sector. While many focus on the prospects of developing Nepal as a perfect tourist hub for the inflow of foreign visitors, it is equally important that domestic tourism is also given ample space to grow. Over the years, more resources have been allocated for external tourism and this form of prioritisation has led to the poor growth of domestic tourism in the country. As a result, there is an increment in outbound tourism as Nepali holidaymakers utilise the year’s longest holiday during the festive season by travelling to foreign destination such as Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Thailand, Indonesia and The Philippines which serves as the attractive destinations for Nepali middle-income tourists, while Dubai, Mauritius, Maldives and European cities are preferred by upper- income Nepali tourists.
