Isfahan (IMNA) – Saying that rural tourism is a kind of activities that provide extra income for those who have steady jobs like agriculture, animal husbandry, Mostafa Fatemi said, "Rural tourism should be realized as a lifestyle based on beliefs concerning the rural communities. The source of many rural attractions is the culture of people living in that area. Nowadays, villagers have to do various activities in the field of agriculture, animal husbandry, handicrafts, or services in order to make money."
