Pokhara named cheapest tourist destination in Asia

WASHINGTON DC: The Price of Travel*, a global travel database, published the list of 25 best value cities for budget travellers placing Pokhara of Nepal at the top of its Asia list published for the month of September this year.

One can stay in Pokhara at the cost of 15.44 US dollar per day, according to the report.

US Nepal Chamber of Commerce Vice-President Bed Kharel told the Rastriya Samachar Samiti (RSS) that the list published by the website would play a significant role to attract tourists.

"Medium class tourists will make plan to travel to Pokhara as per their budget. Publishing the list of cheapest cities placing Pokhara at top by the site is itself publicity for Nepal."
