When it comes to attracting more visitors to Nepal we haven’t even started to scratch the tip of the proverbial iceberg. It is plain that we in Nepal have fallen behind the rest of the world in exploiting the vast tourism potential of this great nation of ours. Let’s face it, folks at the Ministry of Tourism and Fatalism, the Nepal Tourism Bored, and the Department of Immitation need to get their balls rolling if we are to hit the target of a million visitors by the end of this year. And for this there is no other way but to gird up their proverbial loins.
Which is why we commend the initiative taken by Thiruvananthapuram International Airport’s public-private partnership initiative to get a liquor maker to come up with welcome signs at the arrival concourse to give visitors a quick summary of why Nepal is great. We don’t know who came up with these marvelous blurbs, but quite a lot of vodka must have been consumed in thinking them up.
