Global Yoga Tourism Market – Overview
Wellness tourism refers to the practice of traveling to improve one’s physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. The desire for a healthy lifestyle, stress reduction, and the desire to avoid illnesses are the primary drivers of increased demand for wellness tourism. Tourists engage in spiritual, physical, and mental activities by visiting spas, practicing yoga, staying at health resorts, and attending meditation retreats. Personal wellbeing is promoted by the desire to interact socially with locals and learn about other cultures, which drives the growth of the wellness tourism industry.
Opportunity: Increasing Internet Use
The deepening penetration of internet-enabled smart electronic devices, such as laptops, tablets, and smartphones, is leading to a significant increase in the number of wellness tourists. Social media marketing by travel agencies and other tourism-related service providers has a significant positive effect on the growth of the wellness tourism sector in the current digital era. Internet users are being actively educated about wellness tourism and its benefits. The ease with which travel service providers make it possible to book tickets and make travel plans have changed consumers’ preferences for online ticket booking over the past few years.
