Why Rural Tourism

What exactly pulls tourists to our villages ?

– The clean air & pollution free environ thats hard to find in cities
– The “poor, hungry people” as highlighted by Circuit in MunnaBhai MBBS
– The slow pace of life & the simplicity of living
– Gandhiji’s words that India lives in her villages
– Low cost way to see the natural beauty of India (I had home stayed with farmers during my Sikkim visit)

I have been watching this industry grow considerably, but am still not sure whats the puller?
