The province of Hamadan in central Iran is set to host two major international events which can serve as good opportunities to make foreign tourists more familiar with its historical sites.
Hamadan is to host “Asia’s Tourism Capital Conference” and “General Assembly of World Tourism Organization” in 2018.
Due to its historical sites as well as cultural and natural beauties, Hamadan has managed to establish itself as the capital of tourism in the ancient continent of Asia, a Farsi report by IRNA said.
Among the villages of the province, Molhamdarreh and Habashi have played a key role in attracting tourists to the central province.
With the roofs of houses on lower tiers, the houses in the two mentioned villages have turned into the main tourist attractions of Hamadan province. Add to the attraction the beautiful nature of the region. Many compare the villages with the well-known Iranian village of Masouleh in the northern province of Gilan which is widely known at the international level for its natural beauties.
Activists have called on the organizations dealing with tourism sector to allocate enough budget for preparing the historical sites of Hamadan province to host the growing number of tourists flowing into the region.
They maintain that the two upcoming international events are good opportunities to introduce the province’s attractions to foreign tourists and the related organizations need to take the most advantage of the events.
