Chhattisgarh Tourism Board (CTB) has come out with attractive offers to attract domestic tourists. Now the tourists can experience the exotic beauty of this unexplored place at special discounts on room rents across all its properties in the State. It has also introduced special family package tours spanning various tourist circuits in the State.
