Every year on September 27, World Tourism Day is marked to create and foster awareness about the tourism’s social, cultural, political and economic value and its contribution to the overall development of a place.

In 1980, the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) played an important role in making tourism around the world and making tourism popular.
