Sustainable Marine Tourism in Similan

Words: 5220 Length: 18 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 50833690



Another case study, this one by Cole (2011) examines the cultural and community impacts of tourism, both sustainable and unsustainable, on specific cultures in Indonesia. Cole concludes as well that in order to help keep the cultural and community influences and positive attitudes intact, it is important to consider the local community as a major stakeholder in the sustainability of a tourist destination. Cole states in her article, "ourism has the potential to empower communities and the sustainable tourism agenda needs to focus on how to bring this about. As the case study illustrates, understanding tourists and tourism processes is the first stage to empowering the local community to make informed and appropriate decisions about their tourism development. Considerable investments are required in communication and trust building between the actors in tourism. his paper examines how action research, focus groups and the creation of a tourism forum can be concrete,…… [Read More]

These are the questions which are very difficult to answer, but in order to have a maintained tourism system they plays an important role.

Moreover, the use of term "itself" is confusing for a sustainable tourism. Alternative tourism, 'soft' tourism, ecotourism, and 'green' tourism are the types of tourism which can be used with sustainable tourism which is a high class branch of tourism. The story behind tourism in 1919, about 664 million tourists were present, and those who were known as mass tourism were approximately 80%. Development of sustainable tourism is affected by the differences in between mass tourism and sustainable tourism (Berno and Bricker, 2001).

If one can make a difference between 'good' tourism (best known as the alternative forms of tourism) and 'bad' tourism (particularly mass tourism) then sustainable tourism can appear as disruptive force in the society (Swarbrooke, 1999). To confuse ecotourism with sustainable tourism can give a bad result because all sustainable tourism does not take place at natural area and not all types of ecotourism are sustainable. According to Wall (1997), as the mass tourists might not prefer to visit threatened remote areas, their demand may be lesser than that of

Strategy plan

I am heading into negotiations with the Sanibel Island environmentalists from a strong position, as I have very little to lose. I am already projecting a profit, even with some of the environmental remediation work factored into my projections, and the profit will grow substantially after the first year. If I get no concessions out of these negotiations, the hotel will still be profitable; if I get any concessions, that profit could increase exponentially. As Steven P. Cohen indicates, the party with little to lose and much to gain is in a position of power in the negotiating process, as he or she is able to take risks (Cohen, 1995).

The biggest concession I could win would be the ability to expand the hotel to at least four floors, while would greatly increase the hotel's profitability, so my negotiating strategy will focus on achieving that end result. From…… [Read More]

Currently, there are no formal tourism facilities at all on the island of Kaho'olawe. Through effective marketing and advertising strategies, the proposed cultural education center will invite individuals across the globe to know the essence of Hawaiian culture by visiting the island of Kaho'olawe. Visitors to Kaho'olawe will improve their knowledge on the cultural aspects of the inhabitants of the region while enjoying the scenery and surroundings. An educational approach to tourism will focus on the promotion of the culture of the inhabitants through provision of relevant knowledge and information concerning the island of Kaho'olawe.

Anthro On the Law Which Has Regulated

Words: 1543 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 69645300

Anthro

"On the Law which has Regulated the Introduction of New Species" is a paper written in 1855 by the pioneering evolutionary biologist Alfred Russel allace. The article outlines a theory of evolution that predates Darwin's Origin of Species. In fact, allace's paper predated a letter that he wrote to Charles Darwin and which was a source of inspiration for the latter's work. allace wrote "On the Law which has Regulated the Introduction of New Species" in Sarawak, Borneo, but inside the article mentions the Galapagos Islands, where Darwin developed his theories. Islands may evolve peculiar variations of species due to their geographic isolation from continental masses. allace was well travelled and mentions a number of different geographic zones that are relevant to his research on biological evolution including zones in the Americas, Europe, and also Asia.

John in Chorio.

Symi is home to more than 465 chapels and churches. The town of Symi houses 13 churches and dozens of chapels, some of which date back to Symi's Byzantine eraf. One of the most frequented attractions on Symi is the monastery located at Panormitis. This monastery draws thousands of tourists to the island each year. Popular monasteries on Symi include Roukeuniotis, Megalos Sotiris, St. Michael, and the Church of the Virgin.

Firms Have Been Focused on Social Responsibility

Words: 1878 Length: 6 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 57168208

firms have been focused on social responsibility. This is when a company will engage in different practices that take into account the viewpoints of various stakeholders (such as: communities, the environment and the impact on the firm).

In the case of Chevron, they claim that they are committed to protecting the environment at all costs.

Evidence of this can be seen with company's Operational Excellence Management System. Implemented in 2007, this is designed to take into account a number of different viewpoints when starting any kind of new project. The most notable include: possible social, environmental and safety issues. This program is illustrating how the company is focused on addressing issues that will be impacted by their activities.

However, Chevron is also dealing with challenges where they contributed to incidents that harmed the environment, health or interests of other stakeholders (i.e. The Brazilian offshore oil slick). The combination of these…… [Read More]

The cost of living index is based on a national average of 100.If the region shows a cost of living index that is lower than 100, it means it is living below national standard, and the reverse shows it is living above national standards.

Battle of the Aleutians a Cold Wake Up Call

Words: 12983 Length: 50 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 45023850

Termed "the forgotten battle," the Battle for the Aleutians represented the only instance during World War II when the Japanese occupied American soil and the campaign exacted a significant toll of American lives and treasure. The Aleutians became strategically significant during World War II for the Japanese as well as the United States, but the American preparations in anticipation of this attack were woefully inadequate. Despite a U.S. naval base was being established at Dutch Harbor in 1942, the Japanese bombed the base and later occupied Attu, Kiska, and Agattu islands. Although a U.S. counterattack from bases on Adak and Amchitka retook these islands in 1943, several thousand of American lives were lost in the process and many more were injured. The purpose of this study is to provide a comprehensive and critical analysis of the primary and secondary juried and scholarly literature concerning the Battle of the Aleutians to…… [Read More]

Rising Cost of Housing Cost and Its Effect on the Nuclear and Extended Family

Words: 3602 Length: 10 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 80490281

prohibitively rising cost of housing in Rhode Island has affected both the nuclear and extended family. Rising housing costs may force family members to move to less expensive areas, causing a breakdown in both extended and nuclear family structure. However, this may be balanced by the increased tendency of young adults, who cannot afford the high housing costs in Rhode Island, to live at home.

Certainly, data outlined below indicate that the housing crisis in Rhode Island is very real and immediate. Individuals across Rhode Island society are beginning to feel the constraints of the difficult housing market, and low-income individuals are feeling the greatest strain.

Given that federal and private agencies are unable to keep up with the increasing demand for housing assistance for low-income residents, the housing crisis will only continue to grow. As a result, the pressures of the nuclear and extended family are not expected to…… [Read More]

True Meaning of Snow

David Guterson is the young, American author of Snow Falling on Cedars which heavily consists of human nature and human emotions. Snow Falling on Cedars, narrates the trial of a Japanese man accused of murdering a white man in the post-orld ar II era. Throughout this literary work, Guterson uses elements of nature: land, trees, water and especially snow, as literal and metaphorical tools to develop and resolve conflicts.

David Guterson uses the same aspects and characteristics of nature in two different ways. First he describes in visual detail the literal or actual effects that elements of nature have on the characters in the novel. But more importantly Guterson uses nature to convey substantial and symbolic meaning in the lives of the characters in the story.

In fact, this could not take place in the case of the anary Islands positive steps have been taken, such as in the case of law 19/2003 passed by the Government of the Islands.

Strengths

The paper on the anary Islands and more precisely on Tenerife offers an original contribution to the theoretical literature regarding the steps towards sustainability in the case of island tourist destinations. By trying to explain the causes of present tourism stagnation on the island, the article manages to identify and clearly formulate the reasons behind this stagnation - tourist activity issues, excess of supply, imbalances in demand etc. The two theoretical standpoints are also clear and well-formulated from the beginning (Fig.1: 3) so that the logic of the arguments put forward is both solid and always present.

The conclusions put forward the idea that there have been theories that due to excessive construction, the resources…… [Read More]

Conclusions

To conclude, the contribution of this article to the field of tourism destination management is valuable mostly thanks to the theoretical standpoints that the entire argument is based on. Even though the political-legal measures are definitely not the same in all island tourist destinations that are stagnating, the authors' overview of local authorities' efforts of regulating tourism activity on the island is still relevant because it can be applied to other island tourist regions which are faced with more or less the same issues.

Multiculturalism and Globalization in the epublic of Fiji

In an increasingly global society, multiculturalism is becoming important for businesses and individuals that want to advance. There is an increasing need to understand and relate to others, and people who are unable or unwilling to do so are finding that they are being left behind in business. They are also finding their growth stunted financially and culturally, because they do not permit themselves to be open to other people and to continue to learn what they can from people who are different from them. While that is unfortunate, how significant multiculturalism is in the life of a particular person can depend greatly on where that person lives and the culture that he or she is exposed to on a daily basis. Some people need to be more multicultural than others, just based on where they reside.
