Food festival showcases tourism potential of Meghalaya [State news]
- The Indigenous Terra Madre festival brought together 640 delegates from all over the world, demonstrating the State's tourism potential.
- Meghalaya is considered home to one of the world’s first species of citrus fruits, the Citrus Indica, or wild orange, locally known as Memang Narang.
- Shillong town, with its narrow roads, already congested with local traffic, and limited hotel rooms, however, is not ready for a large influx of tourists.
- Getting locals motivated about tourism and at the same time, improving infrastructure - widen roads, and engage with the community. The city has to expand naturally, beyond its present boundaries.
