Tourism is core for the progress of a country. It strengthens the economy of a country and builds its reputation around the world. A country makes a firm place in the hearts of tourists when it provides safe and luxurious tourism, whether they are locals or foreigners. Successful tourism becomes a boosting factor of the economy. It creates thousands of jobs, improves the infrastructure, and becomes a bridge of friendship between outsiders and citizens. In addition, when culture is exchanged, the first and most important element is the food, famous delights and delicious recipes.
