This winter, enjoy a night ride aboard Darjeeling toy train!
One of the prominent tourist attractions in Darjeeling is the Darjeeling toy train which was established in 1881, which continues to lure tourists from far and near. This November, as part of the festivities, the DHR has announced that the Darjeeling toy train will continue to run post-sundown through the same route for the first time in history. It’s expected that the special evening train will boost the upcoming celebrations as well as the heritage train among tourists.
If reports are to go by, the Darjeeling toy train will run in the evenings every Saturday and Sunday from 12 November 2022 to 4 December 2022. These are also the dates when the Ghoom Festival will be celebrated where one can expect folk art performance, stand-up comedy, and much more. Visitors can also take part in heritage walks and mountain-biking.

Mizoram Tourism, is organising the 10th International Tourism Mart(ITM) for the Northeast region from November 17 to 19, 2022 in Aizawl, Mizoram. The objective is to highlight the tourism potential of the Northeast region in domestic and international markets.

While the earlier editions were held in Guwahati (Assam), Tawang (Arunachal Pradesh), Shillong (Meghalaya), Gangtok (Sikkim), Agartala (Tripura), Imphal (Manipur) and Kohima (Nagaland), Mizoram is gearing up to host the mart for the first time. Tucked away in the Northeastern part of India is the hilly state of Mizoram. With ample natural beauty and a deep-rooted sense of culture and tradition, Mizoram is another Northeastern gem that has great tourism potential.
Soon, direct flights between India and Cambodia!
To travel to Cambodia from places in India, currently, travellers have to take a connecting flight to a nearby country like Singapore, Malaysia, or Thailand. But now, the two countries are exploring ways to start direct flight operations to boost tourism.
Talks are underway for establishing direct air connectivity to Indian cities, New Delhi and Bodhgaya with Phnom Penh. The introduction of direct flights will enable people to opt for Cambodia as a tourist destination and make travel more affordable. It will also enhance joint efforts to boost people-to-people connectivity.
