In numerous regions, rural life is actually an attraction on its-own. Well cultivated plots as well as verdant tropical vegetation characterize the background of majority of the simple rural houses. The Women are commonly seen in multicolored dresses carry firewood and pails of water as they return home. The Villagers take part in a number of developmental projects, among which are irrigation systems, primary schools and small health centers.
The local people are very eager and willing to welcome tourists as well as show them how they spend their daily life, teach them about their culture and show them the spectacular scenery of their villages. The local look at tourism not only as an income generating activity but also as an activity that creates employment opportunities, and can actually help in the betterment of their basic living conditions.
