Ambassadors of Bodoland 2018Get to know the ambassadors and their creations from Bodoland
12 Creators, 7 Days & One Destination
We started the first edition of ‘Ambassadors of Bodoland’ with 12 travellers from different parts of India. All of them were on their maiden trip to Bodoland. Being a destination far removed from the highway of hashtags and social media check-ins, let alone travel guides and listings, except the itineraries and guidelines provided by our team, the travellers had limited information about the experiences awaiting them in Bodoland.
Ambassadors of Bodoland 2018 was a curious and adventurous bunch who were ready to delve into novel and fresh experiences. And they became the Bards of Bodoland, who used their varied forms of artistic expression to talk to the world about this gem of a place. Scroll down to see the content produced by AOB 2018.
