Colombia, the second most biodiverse country and a leading nature and adventure tourism destination, is preparing to highlight its charming regions at the 'Travel and Connectivity Week' at Expo 2020 Dubai taking place from January 9-16.
 
In line with efforts to strengthen its position on the global tourism map and reactivate its economy, the Colombia Pavilion will share the country’s business and investment prospects available in the tourism sector. 
 
Furthermore, it will showcase Colombia’s initiatives to foster collaborations with regional and international business entities to strengthen its tourism sector and position the country as an ideal travel destination. It will also highlight the significance of its six touristic regions.
 
The regions — Amazon-Orinoquía, Western Andes, Eastern Andes, Greater Colombian Caribbean, Massifs, and Pacific — make Colombia one of the world’s megadiverse nations. These multicultural, high biodiversity regions are highly accessible thanks to their state-of-the art infrastructure.
 
Colombia's pavilion at Expo 2020 features its cultural diversity, natural ecosystems, ancient culture and history, and urban tourism of its regions. Due to its natural environment, the country is an ideal destination for travellers with a variety of interests, from those seeking sandy beaches to those wanting an adventurous excursion through the forests.
 
The exhibition at the Pavilion aims to attract travellers with its variety of destinations, as well as foster new collaborations to aid the growth of Colombia’s tourism sector.
 
The Greater Colombian Caribbean is one of the most sought-after travel destinations, with its sandy beaches, traditional cuisines, historic cities, cultural and natural diversity. Castillo de San Felipe de Barajas, a world heritage site by UNESCO, Tayrona National Park, the sea of seven colours of San Andres and Providencia, located in the Seaflower Biosphere Reserve, one of the most important marine ecosystems, Barranquilla, and Palomino beach are some of the major attractions in this region.
 
The Pacific region is a biodiversity hotspot with its vast stretches of beaches and lush forests. In this part of the country, travellers can spot humpback whales, snorkel in Nuqui, and learn traditional African culture in Tumaco, enjoy salsa in the city of Santiago de Cali and relish the cuisines of the Pacific.
 
The Andean region is the most populated in the country, and it comprises West Andes, Central Andes, and East Andes. This region is also known for its vast stretch of Andean Forest and diversity in birds and coffee production. Medellin, known as the City of Eternal Spring, La Miel River, Los Nevados National Natural Park and Cocora Valley, are a few of the important destinations in the Western Andes, which is known for its urban and coffee culture.
 
The Eastern Andes includes places such as Gallineral Natural Park, Chicamochar river, El Cocuy National Natural Park, Paramo of Iguaque, Salt Cathedral in Zipaquira, Chingaza National Natural Park and Bogota, to name a few.
 
Colombian Massif, known for agroecosystem and xerophytic vegetation, also has many incredible places that offer remarkable experience such as Tatacoa Desert, Puracé National Natural Park, Cocha Lagoon and Las Lajas in Nariño. Black and White’s carnival, one of the largest celebrations in Colombia, is held each year in Pasto, in this region.
 
The last of the six regions that will also be showcased at the Expo 2020 is Amazonia-Orinoquia. Tuparro National Natural Park, Eastern Plains, Sierra de la Macarena, Mavecure, table mountains of Serranía del Chiribiquete, waterfalls in Jirijirimo, and Amacayacu National Natural Park are some of the attractions that make it a major travel destination.-TradeArabia News Service
