Andhra Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation lacked aggression in promotion of native tourist hotspots in comparison with its Kerala counterpart, said K.S.R Hanumantha Rao, Managing Director, Swift Vacation Trips Private Limited, here on Saturday.

Speaking to media persons while explaining the summer packages, Mr. Rao said that he had met the Tourism Secretary recently and asked to take up promotional activities on a war-footing. “Locales like Araku and Papikondalu are the favourites of the tourists from other states and abroad,” he added. Mr. Rao said his company, with 16-years of experience, was sending around 4,000 tourists to foreign countries and around 20,000 in the domestic circuit.
