According to Expansão, only four out of 10 angolans make tourism in the country. The promoters of this project thus aim to counteract the numbers and help citizens who want to take the day off to be tourists, but who have few financial resources.
According to Allicia dos Santos, mentor of the initiative, speaking to Expansão, the creation of the itinerary with affordable prices aims to establish that "tourism can be done with little money in the pocket".
Participants in the itinerary will have the opportunity to visit some historical sites of the capital. The list includes Rua dos Mercadores, Major Kayangulo, Missão, Sai de Mingas, and the museums of Natural History, Anthropology and Armed Forces.
The initiative started this month, with tickets costing 9500 kwanzas, and according to the mentor of the initiative, "during the visit, tourists have the right to drink water, baked banana with jinguba and to take pictures along the way".
Recently, the responsible said that the country has "tourist potential, but is not yet a tourist destination, due to the fact that it still has a deficit in infrastructure to support the tourism sector, registering a lack of auxiliary equipment for hotels" and presenting "deficiencies in security and public health," making it unattractive to foreigners.
According to Expansão, the official was speaking during a training session for young people on cultural tourism in the country, having taken the opportunity to ask the authorities to get involved in the creation of support infrastructures for the sector and in the development of activities that stimulate Angolans to explore the country's tourist potential.
