Cultural tourism is the subset of tourism to deal with a country and regional culture. Generally, it is about the lifestyle of the people and the historical background of the culture, art, food, architecture, religion, traditions, and other tangible and intangible elements that helped change their way of living.
Uganda is one of the countries endowed with so many cultural tourism potential but not well marketed to the whole world. One of the reasons cited for this pale growth is low funding by government and the absence of investment incentives to those that intend to venture into this section of tourism.
To many they wait the government to do something to Uganda as the biggest export earning sector. Speaking to Mary Ingabire the lady behind the global culture event which will take place on the 13th of August, 2017 at the Uganda Museum, she said that this is one of most initiatives and she hopes to see the government shift its perception towards the development of tourism, she said.
