Locals are best equipped to impart tourist information and represent their hometowns as ambassadors.
Travel is a great way for people to discover and learn amazing things about new lands. Besides, tourism gives locals the chance to display their patriotism and develop the economy.
With an in-depth understanding of daily life and traditional customs, who could better represent their hometowns than locals themselves.
Tourism has played a crucial role in boosting the economy and enhancing social living standards. The interaction between locals and tourists helps shape first impressions to directly influence service ratings.
Promoting the “local ambassador” image is essential for developing the economy and improving tourism service quality.
Choosing to become a local ambassador, local tour guides afford themselves a chance to earn an extra income and share their experience, knowledge, and even love of their hometowns with visitors.
Local guides could connect with tourists in several ways, including directly, via groups, forums or via collaboration with travel firms.
