Gujarat as a tourist place ??

As per Gujarat Tourism Board, out of 1,10,000 to 1,50,000 outsiders visit to Gujarat last year, 53% people came for business tour !! 33% people visited religious places like Dakor, Somnath, Dwarka etc. 9% visited their relatives and remaining 5% are actual tourists ! Those 5% includes invited and may be "paid" ( I mean tour is paid for them) guests for many "vibrant" festivals.

From 2002-07, Gujarat Tourism's 63-93% hotels made loss and 83-100% cafeterias were among this category ! We all know why?
