Kathmandu –Hotel Association of Nepal (HAN) has announced 20 per cent discount to tourists at its member hotels on the occasion of the World Tourism Day.
HAN general secretary Binayak Shah said the discount has been provided to make the stay of foreign visitors in Nepal pleasant and to promote tourism in the context of the World Tourism Day.
