In a bid to promote rural tourism in the state, the Punjab government is planning to conduct a rural tourism workshop on December 1.
The workshop will be presided over by tourism minister Sohan Singh Thandal.
The holy city was chosen for the event as the government has chalked out a plan to develop Amritsar as a tourist hub.
During the workshop, the government will showcase the city’s historical and religious monuments and shrines, include the Golden Temple, the Jallianwala Bagh, Ram Bagh Gardens and Fort Gobindgarh. Focus will also be on the famous eateries in the city and its market places.
The workshop will witness discussions over future tourist destinations and circuits followed by interactive session with stakeholders, tour operators, service providers, farm owners and community members. Incentives for farmers who are willing to offer their farm houses for the promotion of tourism will also be discussed.
