Punjab Government is gearing up to take its tourists on a trip to the historic and religious locations in the holy city of Amritsar. Steering the holiday-makers clear from possibilities of exploitation by unscrupulous agents, it is accelerating towards the launch of double-decker buses for the sightseers soon.

 

The Punjab Heritage and Tourism Promotion Board (PHTPB) has floated tenders for five double-decker buses for tourists for their sightseeing of tourist spots in the holy city of Amritsar. The PHTPB officials stated that these buses may be operationalised by the middle of next year.

 

The second floor of these buses would be open to sky for convenient sightseeing of tourist spots. They said initially these buses would run between famous and popular tourist spots like the Golden Temple, Jallianwala Bagh, the Durgiana Temple, the Summer Palace in Ram Bagh, the Gobindgarh fort and the heritage village in Guru Nanak Dev University.

 

 Subsequently, these tourist buses would be used to ferry tourists to witness the retreat ceremony at the Attari border and historic places like Pul Kanjri there. Besides, an amphibian bus has also been approved for Harike Pattan wetland. The bus could sail in water and also move on a road.
