New Delhi: Notwithstanding its failure to woo one lakh foreign tourists during the Commonwealth Games as targeted, 'Incredible India' attracted close to five million outstation visitors this year as the tourism ministry had its share of glory and missed opportunities.

With a double-digit growth in the foreign tourist arrivals, 2010 was otherwise a good year for the ministry.

Incredible India campaign attracted 4.93 million foreign tourists till November as compared to 4.46 million during the same period last year, registering a growth of 10.4 percent.

Despite the massive campaign launched by the ministry to promote India for the Commonwealth Games, tourist arrivals did not touch the one lakh mark target during the sporting extravaganza.

The year began on a promising note with visa on arrival (VoA) scheme introduced for tourists from Singapore, Finland, New Zealand, Luxembourg and Japan.
