Top Possibilities of Rural Tourism
Many rural communities have not yet explored their tourism potential. A few entrepreneurs in the area may have started but have not really explored possibilities to enhance tourism in their area. When you look hard enough, new possibilities open up and when the effort involves the whole community you have enormous potential.
Take, for example, one of the communities we have visited organised itself very well. This village did pottery and the whole village worked together. One family just worked on glazing and the rest of the village went there to have their pottery glazed.
Those in the village who were very good merchants sold the pottery to international buyers. Others, just wanted to do their art so they opened their workshop to tourists who’ve wandered the place in search for more original creations. They demonstrated the art of doing unique pottery pieces.
Others, opened their workshop to those interested to learn pottery or do one they could bring home. One lady was the tourist guide and regaled us with stories about the village.
There are so many possibilities villagers can explore when they work together. They can put their resources to much better use. They can focus on one thing and do it really well.. not all of them doing everything mediocre.
I have also heard of communities working as one to meet deadlines. Whatever the activities are, they often build up the community.
Competition is healthy. If several in the community provide the service, the competition enhances the service as each one tries to differentiate or better the service they offer. such has to be encouraged.
