Bundling as strategy of tourist attraction based on natural and cultural tourism in the ex-Surakarta residency

Cultural Heritage tourism such as visiting Prambanan temple can be bundled with educational tourism in the form of making ATBM such as striated woven cloth (Non-Machine Weaving Equipment), water tourism, or the Sugar museum which is still operating (Gondang Winangun). The location is inside the sugar factory. Based on observations and interviews with the department of tourist destination management, the government is very serious in developing tourist attractions. This is evidenced by the many tourist attractions which a few years ago were still in the form of potential now becoming a developing and advanced tourist attraction. The tourist attraction that is owned by the government is an asset that can be used to find local revenue. Each local government can determine fees according to the target that must be achieved.This has caused retribution to enjoy almost the same tourist attraction, but the price is different. Pricing price bundling must be careful, because tourists with available information can choose the same tourist attraction at a cheaper price. For now the government only determines retribution rates, price bundling is carried out by travel agents, who offer tour packages to tourists. Creative and innovative strategies must not stop and must be planned in the long run (Fang, Sun, & Gao, 2017). The development of tourist attractions must be different from tourist attractions in other areas. One example of the development of tourist attractions is the emergence of aero sport tourism which has been launched in Semarang Regency and is ready to bring tourists from foreign countries. This sport requires special locations such as valleys or mountains. Therefore not all locations can be used for aero sports tourism.

The Public Perception of The Development of River of Life Area as A Tourist Attraction in Kuala Lumpur

Various development processes and maturing tourism in Malaysia are carried out for example by the existence of Project River of Life. Rivers are an important part of tin mining transportation. The arrival of the Klang River that we know today has been a bad sight for years, underestimated because of its muddy and toxic water and excessive accumulation of garbage, especially because of its location in the heart of a densely populated city whose residents are not reluctant to use their waters as trash bins. It is also vulnerable to flash floods caused by erosion of the surrounding soil Efforts have been made for years to clean it up, with little or no real success, until now. Seeing the potential of what is known as a possible "most exploited underground natural asset" in Kuala Lumpur, the River of Life project has been identified as an Entry Point Project in the Kuala Lumpur / Klang Valley (NKEA) National Key Economic Zone under the Transformation Program Economy (Segaren, 2015).

Pan-Africanisation of South African Political Cultural Heritage as Tourist Attraction

Pan-Africanisation of South African Political Cultural Heritage as Tourist Attraction

Abstract: The most visited tourist attractions in South Africa are the political heritage sites of memorisation of the struggle against apartheid and are regarded as the main symbols of the new post-1994 national identity. Building on the rise of African consciousness known as the African Renaissance and Pan- Africanism, the paper explores the possibility that these famous tourist sites are equally representative of the newly emerging Pan-African identity. The study builds on extensive literature on the African Renaissance movement, the concepts of national and Pan-African identity, and on two dimensions of constructive authenticity, cognitive (learning) and affective (feeling). This mixed-method study explores the differences in the way domestic and African tourists construct the authenticity of their experience of the site. The results of data triangulation confirm the main assumption of this paper that the country’s most iconic places of struggle against apartheid are not only representative of the new South African national identity but of newly emerging Pan-African identity too. The findings are valuable for site managers, who should include the Pan African narrative into interpretation and presentation of the sites, and government, who should promote the South African political heritage sites as unique Pan African tourist attractions for the African market. Keywords: Pan-Africanism; cultural heritage; apartheid; South Africa; constructive authenticity

Tourist Attraction recommendations using collaborative filtering

Tourist Attraction recommendations using collaborative filtering

Abstract—Tourism has become the world's largest economy industry. More and more people share their travelogues on travel websites. Recommender system is an effective tool to provide travel services for tourists. In this paper, we present a personalized neighbourhood-based recommendation using Cosine method to recommend cities. This is a fundamental problem whose solution supports other tourism recommendations. To address these challenges, we develop a package generation in a simplified way. We present a system for personalized city recommendation that takes into account the user preferences for cities and the attractions. The proposed solution is based on Collaborative Filtering that relies only on past user behaviour (e.g., the cities each user has visited and liked) and does not assume explicit profiles. We propose a Cosine Method to generate new travel packages to improve the overall recommendation effectiveness. First we generate recommendation process, then generation of neighbours, finally generation of recommendation based on the area of interest and the visiting history of tourist neighbour.

Hakka Village: Chinese Most Treasured Tourist Attraction

However, in one of the houses, visited, the first floor is kitchen. The second floor is the toilet. The rooms in the third floor have bathrooms. They have spaces for everything; space for ceremonies such as weddings and burial ceremonies. There are also deep well in there which serves as source of drinking water. They have a shrine where adherents of folk religion, Buddhist and Taoist do worship their gods. The religious practices of Hakka people are therefore, almost identical to those of other Han Chinese. Ancestor veneration is the primary form of religious expression and so Lee Wei Ling says, and I nearly broke down, but I won't break down. I am a Hakka woman. So, farewell, Papa. I will miss you. Rest in peace and... Be as tough as Hakkas come (Lee, 2015). More evidences of ancestral reverence among Hakka people abound in the following statements: In order to maintain ethnic identity and attachment, the Hakka people have adopted such strategies as amending pedigrees, combining clan organizations and building ancestral temples (Zhou, 2007). Moreover, ancestral worship is important to Hakka culture, with highly sophisticated sacrificial ceremonies and rituals being regularly practiced (Winnie, 2012). There was also market for all their needs and a pit toilet which according to our tourist guard, has never been filled with human excreta.
