London: There was tremendous response for the ‘Incredible India´ road shows organised by Indian Tourism at Gurnsey and Jersey in the Channel Islands, an official said today.
Many tour operators and travel agents described it as a “giant leap in promoting India in the Channel Islands,” Jagdish Chander, Director of London-based Indian Tourism Office, said.
Although Guernsey is geographically closer to France than the UK, it is loyal to the British crown. This loyalty can be traced back to Norman times when the Channel Islands first became part of the English realm and formed the basis of the island’s constitution.
Today the island is self-governing.
Jersey, located about 160 km south of mainland Britain, is the most southerly island of the British Isles.
Chander said India Tourism planned similar road shows in other parts of the UK during the months of January and February, 2009.
