These women are educated and employed and want to travel without the traditional responsibilities of wife and mother. These new groups allow them visit new destinations while surrounding themselves with similar like-minded women.
Excerpt from Al Jazeera
Groups of Indian women are travelling together to destinations far and wide, from the Taj Mahal in Agra to the Antarctica.
With a growing number of urban, educated Indian women expressing the desire to travel, many groups have mushroomed across the country to address this need and this captive market.
Bhutan, Japan, Morocco, Argentina, Peru, Bolivia, Iceland and Pacific cruises are popular choices with the women.
