A new online survey has found that 89 per cent of Indians are ready to hit their favourite domestic destinations with more confidence and excitement, as India began its vaccination rollout drive.

Most respondents emphasised preferring high-level health and safety standards at tourism spots, hotels and resorts before selecting their favourite travel destination and properties for staycations, highlighted the survey.

Conducted by Noor Mahal, the survey also witnessed a hike in demand for domestic over foreign destinations. The survey was conducted among a sample of adults who travelled for business or leisure in the past six months and must be planning to travel in 2021.

According to the New Informed World Traveller survey, which polled more than 3,000 adults, one in three is looking forward to travelling with family and friends as compared to solo travel. Decoding the deciding elements behind selecting a preferred hotel destination, respondents voted for high-level health and safety standards, sustainability, responsible tourism and authenticity and value for money as key factors.

Roop Pratap Choudhary, Managing Director of Noor Mahal, an award-winning luxurious Palace Hotel Brand said, “People are now preferring staycations over long holidays and short distance tours over long journeys. Travellers of the new informed world are keen to take smaller journeys and discovering wonderful experiences closer home especially with the positive and safe environment created with the news of the Covid-19 vaccination rollout. Be it bag packers, corporate groups, families or friends, people are preferring to drive down to their nearby getaways for short and relaxed staycations. In our recent survey, surprisingly 59 per cent respondents preferred short driveable holidays over long distant holidays.”

As many as 69 per cent of respondents mentioned sustainability as one of their top priority before hitting any domestic travel destination. About 49 per cent of respondents gave special attention to offbeat destinations so as to avoid the travel rush to popular destinations. While 32 per cent were in favour of community support to help local tourism recover amid the pandemic. A highly trained staff on hygiene and safety protocols, more personalised experiences and automation for comfort topped the survey chart of service standard expectations from hotels and resorts.

Woman Gives Birth To 9 Babies | Created New World Record

It’s a new world record has been set for the most number of birth given at a time, with a shocking number of 9 in total.

A Malian woman gave birth to nine babies on Tuesday – two more than doctors had detected inside her crowded womb – joining a small pantheon of mothers of nonuplets.

The pregnancy of Halima Cisse, 25, has fascinated the West African nation and attracted the attention of its leaders. When doctors in March said Cisse needed specialist care, authorities flew her to Morocco, where she gave birth.

“The newborns (five girls and four boys) and the mother are all doing well,” Mali’s health minister, Fanta Siby, said in a statement.

Cisse was expected to give birth to seven babies, according to ultrasounds conducted in Morocco and Mali that missed two of the siblings. All were delivered by cesarean section.
