This issue of India Outbound opens with a collage of our memories from around the world with little notes that might inspire you to travel. India has become the fastest growing outbound travel market in the world and is only bound to escalate more. The rise is due to increasing disposable incomes as well as a boost from various social media platforms. We have all the details in our article on the story of the smart Indian travellers.
