"Delhi will have its first Bungee jumping permanent station, multiple activity towers, free fall jump, zip-line station at the Graden of Five Senses," said Manish Sisodia. After taking the charge of the tourism department, Sisodia focused on the improvement of the tourism sector. He had earlier proposed to set up a tourism advisory board that could come out with innovative ideas to develop the national capital into a tourist hub in the country.
"We are going to develop it (tourism advisory board). We need a good team that can keep thinking about tourism development," Sisodia said.
He also pointed out the need for new tourism circuits in Delhi to increase the stay period of tourists arriving in the city. "There is a need to compel the tourists to spend extra days in Delhi through new tourism circuits such as golf, political and social circuits," he said.
Emphasizing on the social circuit, he said that there were several things such as government schools, 'mohalla clinics', night shelters developed by the Delhi government that could interest many willing to pay visits to these facilities. He also said that tourism in the city cannot be developed without involving Delhiites and suggested for special packages for the locals.
