New Delhi, March 1 ( Delhiites are in for a two-day treat with flavoursome food and mood setting music at an upcoming festival.
The city’s newest and most lively fiesta, Beat Street Festival, will be “everything street”– from dance performances, rap battles, DJ battles, street shows and a host of musical guests, the organisers said.
Debuting on March 14-15, at Kalagram at Garden of Five Senses in Saket, the outdoor festival will compliment the surreal natural landscapes with a beautiful blend of urban Delhi, at the venue.
Highlights include stunning performances by artists like Karan Aujla, Lisa Mishra, and Sukh-E, among others.
For food, delicious cuisines like Lebanese, North Indian, European, Oriental, Italian, Mughlai, Mexican, Coastal, from 50 street food restaurants along with popular drinks and cocktails will make for a lazy fun weekend.
“India does not have carnivals that focus on street culture, and we want to change thatrefer travelling slow and taking relaxing vacations.
Guests are seen indulging in a host of amazing family activities with an objective of bringing urban families together to bond over unique moments of fun and adventure. While opting for holidays, travellers are mindful of selecting resorts that also cater to internal well-being.
Wellness tourism is beyond regular spa and thermal treatments to incorporate lifestyle improvement practices that render holistic well-being through travel, he added.
Why is this industry booming and how is it shaping up?
“In a steadily growing economy, where people constantly face a rapidly changing life, wellness tourism becomes even more important as it rejuvenates the body, mind, and soul through the detoxification offered by different health therapies. South Asians are embracing a life-well-lived mind-et in their ‘40s because they can afford it. They want to achieve and maintain the quality of not only life but a lifestyle,” Rahul Chaudhary said.
The definition of wellness tourism has certainly evolved from what it was a few years ago.
“Today, the focus is on transformational travel, something that one can take back after the holiday whether it is an everlasting memory or a good habit. Mental well-being is treated to be as important as physical wellness,” shares Neeraj Seth, Director of Marketing Communication and Public Relations at Kandima Maldives.
Finally, how is the industry shaping up?
As per Chaudhary, the wellness idea changes almost every aspect of travel and wellness tourism that will only grow faster in the years ahead because it sits at the powerful intersection of two huge, expanding industries: the USD 2.6 trillion tourism industry and the USD 4.2 trillion wellness market.
