Bhopal - Madhya Pradesh, India
This is my second visit to Madhya Pradesh, the  wonderful, amazing and marvelous destination. My trip this time to India was to participate at the 3rd edition of Madhya Pradesh Travel Mart that took place in Bhopal city between 14-16 October 2016.
More to visit India, more to know that India and  Middle East are so close in different meanings, In distance, It\'s only few hours flying with huge connections, Indians and Middle East people have a long history in the past and meantime, being in India you feel that you are between your friends and even brothers.
From Amman connecting through Abu Dhabi to Delhi Airport and to Bhopal City (City of Lakes), capital of Madhya Pradesh State, organisers welcoming us. Through clean streets, good weather, good car and with polite driver we reached our Hotel Courtyard by Marriott.
The event program strated with Welcoming Inaugural Dinner for all delegates  where wonderful local folklore and dances reflecting parts of Madhya Pradesh rich culture follwed by Networking dinner with delicous Indian food.
The official opening took place with the presence of several dignitaries from the Indian travel and tourism industry, together with over 200 Hosted Buyers and Media from 20 countries. Speakers has initiated several projects to increase visitors to the State to see some of the country’s best kept world heritage sites, wildlife and amazing landscapes. The State also offers a safe and secure environment.  
The event showcased over 100 different products of Madhya Pradesh from diverse profiles such as Pilgrimage, Heritage, Adventure, Corporate Hotels, Wildlife Resorts, Travel Agents and Tour operators, handicrafts, culture pursuits of Madhya Pradesh, etc. 
I had the chance to meet with over 50 Sellers whom they introduces their properties , services and facilites. Five and Four stars, Tour Opertors, MICE and Conventions and more of Travel services.
On the second day, we had the chance to meet with Mr. Hari Ranjan Rao, MD of MPTDC, around ten journalists attended, Mr. Hari presented the attractions and plans to develop tourism in Madhya Pradesh and aswered all questions from journalists.  
The organisers and Madhya Pradesh Tourism where eager and careful to show us the huge culture and wildlife attractions in Madhya Pradesh, our first this year was for the wildlife in Madhya Pradesh, we took a nightover train to Jabalpur and by car to Kanha National Park, after lunch we took a 4x4 open deck bus which took us for almost thee hours inside the jungle where the richest wildlife was a really unique, here you feel how Madhya Pradesh are really care about it\'s treasure, the Wildlife. It was wonderful and will stay in mind for years.
Beside the wonders and wildlife  that we visit, the beautiful thing was the company in this tour, all friends from India and abroad were like friends even they met only in the bus and that is what makes India special, is the Indian people whom became very close to your heart very quickly.
Madhya Pradesh is not called the heart of India only because of its location in the center of the country. It has been home to the culture heritage of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Islam.
As i mentioned above, the days that i spent this year as last year in Madhya Pradesh was profitable and delightful, I learned a lot about the region and met friends whom will do mutual benefits together, i,m working to organise an Agri tourism trip from Middle East to Madhya Pradesh and Vice versa. As for delightful, the few days were full of good memories mainly because of the nice people that i met and the grand hospitality from the organisers and Madhya Pradesh Tourism.
Looking for future visits to explore Madhya Pradesh more and more and to see other wonderful places such as Panna, Amarkantak, Pench, Bandhavgarh, Bhedaghat, Pachmarhi and other interested places.
