Lebanon Traveler - - AGENDA -

WHAT IS THE CON­CEPT OF THE RE­GIONAL CAL­EN­DARS?

The re­gional cal­en­dars are for two pur­poses. First, dur ing the prepa­ra­tion of the cal­en­dar, they al­low all ac­tors (pr ivate and public) to meet, dis­cuss, ex­change ex­per ience and co­op­er­ate. It is in­creas­ingly known that co­op­er­a­tion and com­mon ac­tion is a key fac­tor of suc­cess in ru­ral tour ism. Then, af ter they are ready, they are a great mar­ket­ing and in­for­ma­tion tool that tar­get do­mes­tic tour ists look­ing for ru­ral es­capes.

WHICH AR­EAS DO THEY COVER?

This year they will cover the distr icts of Jezzine, Rashaya Al-wadi, and Zahlé, as well as the Eh­mej-tan­nour ine-ha­dath El-jebbeh re­gion. We hope to be able to cover ad­di­tional re­gions in the fu­ture.

WHERE CAN TOURISTS GET HOLD OF THEM?

Pa­per copies of the agenda will be distr ibuted dur ing the sec­ond edi­tion of the Travel Le­banon show [at this year’s Gar­den Show & Spr ing Fes­ti­val], they will also be distr ibuted through Le­banon Trav­eler and Agenda Cul­turel. Copies will also be avail­able at the Min­istr y of Tour ism, at mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties and main tour ism at­trac­tions in the re­gion. Tour ists can also check the cal­en­dars and fol­lowup on the ac­tiv­i­ties of the re­gion through the [soon to be launched] Face­book page.
