The Mexican Tourism Department is all set to spend $8 million promoting tourism to woo travellers to plan holidays in the "Mayan World," the southeast Mexico region where the Mayan culture thrived.
Between now and Dec. 21, 2012, when the Mayan calendar officially ends, the Mexican government contrives to promote a variety of events in south-eastern Mexico's "Mayan World," comprising the states of Campeche, Chiapas, Tabasco, Quintana Roo and Yucatan. Being home to six of Mexico's 27 UNESCO World Heritage sites, the most found in any one country, this region has been immensely sought after destination by holidaymakers!
Among the many enhancement projects being developed throughout the country as part of this campaign, Mexico is building "Palace of Maya Civilization" and Museo del Mundo Maya. It is expected that "Palace of Maya Civilization" will bewitch thousands of tourists buying tickets on cheap flights to Mexico to visit the site of Chichen Itza, while the museum of Mundo Maya is expected to receive 300,000 visitors hopping on cheap flights to Mexico on a yearly basis. Similar infrastructural projects are expected to be developed in Chiapas, Campeche and Quintana Roo to boost the tourism.
History and cultural buffs taking Mexican flights will be treated to a dazzling array of cultural offerings in 2012 as the country is expected to restore old archaeological sites and open new ones. While music and dance fans will be entertained with hordes of Maya theme events including dance festivals, concerts, theatrical performances, traditional gastronomy will lure epicureans who travel to the country in 2012.
If you believe in the popular Mayan prophesies of Doomsday on Dec. 21, 2012, plan your trip to the heart of Mayan country for a year-long countdown! Plan Mexican tour to party hard until the 2012 winter solstice ushers in the apocalypse!!
