The 17th PBD is taking place in Indore from 8-10 January 2023, and we at Indo Thai News are here at ground zero to cover this event in all its glory.
We decided to catch an early morning flight and pierced through the cold weather to make our way to Indore.
Well, what an incredible journey it has been so far. We are overwhelmed by the welcoming weather and hospitality of Indore. Everyone from the airport to the hotel extended help with a warm smile.
Indore, a bustling city in the state of Madhya Pradesh, is a place of diversity and culture. Located on the banks of the Saraswati and Kahn rivers, Indore is known for its rich history, delicious food, and warm hospitality. It is one of the most populous cities in Madhya Pradesh.
One thing that makes Indore special is its unique blend of traditional and modern culture. The city is home to several ancient temples, palaces, and monuments, including the admirable Rajwada Palace and the pious Khajrana Temple.
Indore is also home to many modern shopping malls, restaurants, and entertainment venues, making it an excellent place for tourists and locals to experience the best of both worlds.
The Indo Thai News team took a stroll down the famous streets of Indore to get a taste of its delicious street food. With Chaat, Pav Bhaji, Pani Puri and more, Indore has a lot to offer to the hard-core foodies.
Indore is also home to fine restaurants serving various cuisines, from Indian to Chinese to Italian. And what’s more, Indore serves delicious cuisine with an emotional touch.
One thing that has been of great awe to us is Indore’s warm and welcoming people. The locals are amiable and always ready to help. They go the extra mile to reach out and help tourists, making it an excellent place for travellers.
On our way from the airport to the hotel, we interacted with Manoj Sharma, a friendly and experienced driver. The second person who impressed us was our assistant hotel manager Amit Chourey.
From Sharma to Chourey, everyone is happy that such a big event is happening in their city. They are proud citizens of this beautiful city, a city that has won the award of the cleanest city in India – six times in a row! They have worked hard to keep their city clean and have made a conscious effort to, in their way, spread awareness about the Swachh Bharat Abhiyan.
Amit Chourey feels that these events allow tier 2 cities like Indore to showcase their culture, beauty and, most of all, their potential to the world. He also added that such events are usually held in big cities and make little difference to the lives of those in these cities.
But when such significant events are held in smaller cities, they positively impact the lives of ordinary people in these cities. Such events should be held more often in the smaller cities as they provide an excellent opportunity for growth and development for the common person.
Indore is ready for PBD and many more events and tourists to come. Add Indore to your itinerary and enjoy the aesthetic beauty of this bustling city where history mingles with modern times.
