Tourism outspread touches lives of people. It expands more than twice a year, environment makes people get closer, gives highlight to a country, discover new ideas, demands are getting larger, it helps the economy of the country and tourism plays a very big role in the industry. It unites the countries. Tourism consists of many activities in a community or that requires planning and coordination to be able to develop. Dictionary defined tourism as the activities of persons traveling to and staying in places outside their usual environments for a period of not more than one consecutive year, for leisure, business, and other purposes.

Distinguish how tourism helps people and what it contributes to the world. Subsequently, people also need to cooperate and help tourism by sustaining on its development. For instance is to help taking a good care of facilities when you visit a tourist spot, avoid littering, help taking good care of the animals especially those animals that are decreasing in numbers. By this scenario, individuals can contribute a big thing in the development of tourism along with inspiring others to do the same way.

The current majority issues of the tourism are the slowdown of the global economic of the tourism, the concern about safety and security, increase in the use of electronic and other technologies in tourism. This is only some of the major problems tourism is facing. Furthermore, researchers of Department of Tourism specified some issues of tourism which are the concept of sustainable tourism development is not thoroughly understood, so developing of tourism takes more time. There is poor coordination among the various government agencies; it is because they don’t give sufficient budget for the tourism. Tourism master plans had no local participation and there is lack of enforcement machinery, and the penalties for violating environmental laws are very low.

It affects the development of the tourism because planning for tourism can find hard ways to fit the plan in the situation trying not to get the people affected, they are trying to search for a better way to resolve a plan that is resistant to the people.

The sustainable tourism is the development of tourism aiming a goal to achieve constructive way and avoid constraints. It will be dealing with planning at first. Planning is the process of identifying objectives and defining and evaluating methods of achieving them. Planning starts with a regional level and following the basic steps on planning, it has simple structure and guidelines for purposely successive plans.

Step for a planning is you have to know the goals or objectives, if what is the core of the goal, it must be specified to determine the purpose of the plan and of course the identification of tourism system or status. In addition, survey and analysis are required to classify the opinion of the residents, defending the plan is part of process, alternative plans are really needed for implementing the plan, the last is the monitoring on the implementation of the tourist attraction to contribute furthermore in the tourism development.

Developing tourism should convey with the environment. It needs to seek a positive feedback, rising tourism with a positive way as well as to train people to adopt the up to date tourism, similar to increasing number of employment, more tourist destination and the objective that more tourists enjoying the atmosphere, that it can bring a positive impact to the local people as well as tourists. Sustainable tourism avoids damage to the environment, economy and cultures of the locations where it takes place. Economy, the declining of global economic condition really affects the local economy then it deliberate the rapidly growth of tourism in regional to international location. Culture, affecting the way of people living, the culture heritage and history, these things should be constant because this is the one attraction in a place that a tourist loves something unique on it. This is what tourism cares about the culture, the defining its originality that will surely people from other country would admire.

People sometimes are being irresponsible on what is happening on their surroundings, they don’t even care if how is the economy, what government and politician can do to resolve it, if what they can help and what they can do to make people realize the reality of the world.

    Hi Fey, you pretty much have a following here 🙂

    I don’t quite understand some of your points in your post. For example, the planning thing- what was that supposed to mean? Are you referring to some governamnet agency doing the planning or are you referring to some of your suggestions on how to help tourism? It did not make sense to me.

    You have a great blog, but it will surely be better if you get your points clear. This is some constructive feedback- don’t take it negatively. 😉

    You live in a beautiful country so tourism is a natural fit. There are countries in the world that would love the boost for their economies but due to strife and war people stay away. I enjoyed reading your post and thank you for stopping by mine. 🙂
