Assam with its history, heritage, ethnicity, culture and wildlife has an inherent tourism potential. Several river cruises provide a unique experience to tourists taking them on a scintillating journey through the magnificent Brahmaputra. With a vast expanse of tea estates, golf courses, rivers and a tourism circuit connecting other North eastern states as well as countries like Bhutan, the tourism sector is a major investment prospect in the state of Assam.
