World Tourism Day will be celebrated by the Assam Tourism office at Kaziranga National Park on September 27. The theme will be ‘Tourism for All.’
The day will start with a cleanliness drive at the Bonani tourist complex. Then members of a cycling club will ride to the Kaziranga Da Gaon, which is an upcoming model village for tourists. Anchored by tourism official Dani Gam, the event will also have renowned chef Atul Lahkar conducting a workshop on the preparation of ethnic delicacies at the community hall.
Interestingly enough the students of Kaziranga College will also actively participate in the celebrations. They will carry out a survey of the village area and also locate promising spots that have the potential to appeal to tourists visiting the Park. They will also take photographs and the best photo will be awarded.
Pamthee Gohain, a writer who has been working on Buddhist tourism, will also be part of the event. Those in attendance will also get to learn about ‘responsible tourism’. The programme will come to an end with a food session.
