Goa wants rich tourists, not ones who cook food on a bus: State Tourism Minister

When asked about the post-pandemic revival of the tourism industry in Goa, the Tourism Minister Manohar Ajgaonkar on Tuesday said, “We don’t want tourists who consume drugs and who spoil Goa. We don’t want tourists who come to Goa and cook food on a bus. We want the richest tourists.”

Goa is considered to be the country’s most popular tourist destination.

“We welcome all tourists but they should enjoy themselves while respecting Goa’s culture,” he added. The minister said the BJP-led government in Goa is “completely against drugs”.

The Goa Assembly on January 31, 2019, amended the state tourism law, prohibiting cooking and drinking alcohol in public places. Open cooking and drinking on beaches and breaking glass bottles in public was made a criminal offence with fines of Rs 2,000.

Thitinart Boriboon arrived in California to start a certification program at UCLA on March 16, 2020, just as all classes went virtual.

“March 20 the classes were moved online, and I realized that I didn’t need to be in LA,” the Fountain City resident said. “So, I reached out to my family here in Knoxville. I thought I would eventually move back to LA, but then I met more Thai people here and stayed.

“Before I moved here from Bangkok, I didn’t know how to cook,” Boriboon said. “I missed Thai food a lot, so I learned to cook.”

When Boriboon completed her program, she had a work visa that allowed her to put the marketing and media planning experience and training to good use.
