Among the projects, there is the “Tourism Focused Employment Project in Edremit: Floating Hotel” project of Edremit Municipality in Van, which will incorporate the elements of tourism, employment and vocational training.
TO BE BUILT ON THE SHIP
In the project, which will provide support of 2 million lira, a 3-storey hotel will be built on the ship. Internship opportunities will be provided to students studying in the field of maritime and hotel management. 'Floating Hotel' will also serve tourists coming to the region.
Within the scope of the project, a ferryboat that was previously used for transportation in Lake Van and is currently idle will be used.
