Keywords:Tourism, Global industry, Business environment, Cultural heritage, tourism a prospect
Tourism has emerged as the largest global industry of the 20th century and is projected to grow even faster in the 21st century. The economic might of the tourism industry has helped to transform societies often for the better. Tourism provides a major economic development opportunity for many countries and a means for improving the livelihoods of their residents From the earliest times, travel has fascinated man. Much of travel in the beginning was largely unconscious and rather a simple affair. The heavy procedures that we witness in travel today were not to be found in olden days. The travel past is merchant, pilgrimage, a scholar and relation in the search of new experience. Travel today totally changed and mostly tourists travelled for many reasons and new experiences. The tourism industry is grappling with the issue of service quality and recognizes that this is the key to long-term success (Foster, 2001). The complexities of today’s competitive business environments in tourism have made quality as one of the most important sources of competitive advantage. Telangana is located in the southern part of India and is renowned for its natural attractions, temples, palaces, forts and other heritage sites. The rich cultural heritage of the state makes it one of the most visited tourist destinations in South India. According to the Telangana State Tourism Development Corporation, about 92.8 million and 0.318 million domestic and international tourists, respectively, visited the state in 2018. This tourist-friendly state has a large number of big and small accommodation options including budget, luxury and heritage hotels, homestays and resorts. State has tremendous opportunities and all that is needed is to find an acceptable solution to give home tourism a prospect.
