Speaking on the occasion, Venkatesham said, Telangana is a newly formed State of India, and its capital city, Hyderabad, with a population of 6.8 million, is the fifth largest city in India. “Hyderabad is a travel destination and recently the National Geographic Traveller Magazine ranked it as the second best place in the world that one should see in 2015.
In July, India launched e-tourist visa facility for China, and this move would no doubt draw more Chinese tourists. We believe the government will continue to streamline visas for the Chinese.”
