Assam is poised to become one of the greatest tourism hotspots in the days to come, as it has vast expanses of green natural surroundings and an abundant wildlife and bird-life. The famed tea gardens of Hathkhuli and Behora are among the prominent attractions that are visited by plenty of travelers every year. Many of them are all praise for the traditional “Bihu” folk dance which is performed during festive seasons or cultural events at some of the hotels and resorts. People who wish to shop for souvenirs and gift items can explore the stores that sell local handicrafts. Items such as local lady sarong and local shawl (gamcha) are among the most preferred articles that tourists of Assam purchase from such stores. In recent times, eco-tourism is gaining popularity among the travelers who come from different parts of the world to explore the flora and fauna of rainforests.
Of the various wildlife reserves in India, Kaziranga National Park has achieved tremendous success in conservation of endangered species. It is famous for one-horned rhinoceros, and has a significant population of this species in addition to different kinds of wild animals.

The famous Teak trees are found in the forests of this region, and add beauty to the marvelous surroundings that have been instrumental in attracting the attention of tourists worldwide. River cruises and a green eco-friendly environment are enjoyed by most of them, other than the wildlife safaris.
