  • transport and communication links (how can tourists enter the destination and get around when there?)

  • accommodation range (discuss the star ratings available)

  • activities for business and general (conference facilities?)

  • natural and built attractions (what types of attractions are around the destination?)

  • events and entertainment (are there any big events at the destination or theatre shows for example)

  • cost of visiting and living (Is it expensive or reasonably priced?)

  • local culture including food and drink (what is the local food and drink like?)

Natural Built attractions

The term ‘topography’ describes the natural shape of the planets surface and includes features such as lakes, mountains and coastline. Tourists are attracted to these features as they are visually appealing.

Built Attractions

Many ‘built attractions’ were originally built with the intention of becoming tourist attractions. New. However, they are the historic sights that attract those millions of people who are interested in the past and its buildings. This is often called ‘heritage tourism’
