The state of Gujarat has failed to attract foreign tourists even though it has many places that can attract tourists. According to figures released by Market Research and Statistics of the Central Tourism Department, 5,95,607 foreign tourists visited Gujarat in 2019. 

In 2019, Gujarat ranks 12th in attracting foreign tourists compared to other states. The highest number of foreign tourists in the country has come to Tamil Nadu. If we look at the statistics of the last five years, 21,86,298 foreign tourists have visited Gujarat. During the same period, more than 2 crore foreign tourists visited Tamil Nadu and Maharashtra.

Gujarat is compared to Rajasthan, Bihar and West Bengal among the developed states. In the field of tourism also, many programs and festivals are organized by the state government. However, domestic and foreign tourists are not attracted to Gujarat's tourist destinations.
