Tourism is travel for business or pleasure. Every year there are lots of people who come to Nepal as a tourist. They enjoy our culture, food, sightseeing, trekking, and safaris. The tourism industry is a big part of our economy and a great way to communicate with the world. So, to honor this industry Nepal celebrates Tourism day on 27th of September.
So why do Kindergarteners need to be aware of world tourism day? Nepal is a culturally, naturally and geographically diverse country, where a saying ‘अतिथिदेवो भव’ meaning ‘guest in equivalent to god’ has been taught to us since childhood. Therefore, it is a right time to teach kindergarteners about why tourism is so special in Nepal by involving them in some of the fun-filled activities
