New Delhi: Today, September 27, marks World Tourism Day. On this occasion, Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in a groundbreaking development launched a mobile app that provides information about tourist spots along with their brief history, popular local cuisines, market places and heritage walks in the national capital.
The 'Dekho Hamari Delhi' (See Our Delhi) app will be pertinent, useful for those visiting the city and will enhance the tourism experience, he said on Monday.
Kejriwal, while speaking to the media at the ceremony, said, “The tourists who want to visit Delhi can now plan their tour by using the “Dekho Mere Dilli” mobile app. They can plan their entire tour on one platform. They can even buy tickets for the places they want to visit in the national capital.”
Kejriwal said that 'Dekho Hamari Delhi' app contains all information about eating establishments, pleasant places, historic landmarks, and entertainment venues in the national capital, and that tourists can use the app to identify places within 5 kilometres. He appealed to the public to download the app and stressed that even Delhiites will find monuments and eateries which they were not aware of. Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia, who also holds the tourism portfolio, said this app is like an ''invitation for people to visit Delhi and live it''.
