So, Why the Sudden Lakshwadeep love?

Lakshadweep IslandPrime Minister Narendra Modi's recent trip to Lakshadweep in December 2023 sparked a wave of online searches and media coverage. Major news outlets across India have taken notice of this. The Times of India reported a 3,400% jump in Lakshadweep searches on MakeMyTrip after PM Modi's visit. The Hindu and Hindustan Times also featured similar reports, indicating a nationwide interest in Lakshadweep.

So, what's got everyone ditching the Maldivian mantas for Lakshadweep's lagoons? Well, for one, it's the spirit of "Dekho Apna Desh," the clarion call to explore India's own breathtaking beauty, Lakshadweep offers a slice of island life that's closer to home (and perhaps, a tad easier on the wallet).

A diplomatic spat between India and the Maldives over Lakshadweep's development projects ignited Indian patriotism. This ignited national sentiment, with #ChaloLakshadweep becoming a rallying cry to support Indian tourism. But it's not just patriotism fueling the Lakshadweep fever, there is a cherry on top.
