The main aspects of tourism planning are those that are economic, cultural and environmental.
The economic goals should not only focus on the economy itself, but should also be aware that by creating a stronger economy, new jobs and a better infrastructure can also be created. The cultural aspect should concentrate on providing educational opportunities and helping people to be able to embrace the area that they live in. This will, in turn, have a positive effect on the environmental aspects of the area, as people will have a pride about where they live and do their best to not only look after and conserve the area, but also to promote the area to tourists and visitors. This will also enable new, viable communities to be built in the country.
Questions that need to be answered when planning for tourism include how many tourists can be accommodated in the area, and how the area can maximize its income. If the area has environmental areas that need protection, the country should put a plan into place to preserve these areas. The tourism should always meet the needs of local areas and should be goal driven as well as meeting targets that it sets out for itself.
To sum up, the broad spectrum of the economy, the environment and the culture should be looked at when planning for tourism.
