Conclusion

1) Introduction

Travel and Tourism are normally used interchangeably in normal conversations though the two do not mean one thing. Even though the transport industry gives the link that is amid dwelling and destination regions of tourists, but the industry's role as an agent responsible for making tourists reach these destinations has been considered as tourism. Suppose the capability of tourists to journey to favored destinations is withdrawn by the inefficiencies in transport system, there is some probability that the tourists will look for some other destinations. In this case, the task of transport in tourism will have been achieved not. Travel performs very essential role in tourism industry (Les, 2004).

The connection amid tourism and transport has been the debate topic in industry that is concerned with tourism, as the roles are interchangeable as some think, but the difference is quite distinct. The paper has focused chiefly on the transport being a way for achievement of the desire of tourists. Differences amid tourism and travel have been outlined. It brings out clearly the importance of all aspect of tourism and transport (Otego, 2008). The tourism system model by Leiper 1979 is used in the explanation of these. It explores deeply on the factors that hinder transport on various conditions as well the factors that the affects its supply. It does not leave out the demand of transport and the matters that affect it (Les, 2004). 2) Transport and tourism Relation

The impacts of Transportation on the whole tourism system, has beckoned for an improved resource management. Good transportation enhances tourism for example, in biodiversity-rich places, starting of sensitive and inaccessible places by means of improved transport system and service can be disadvantageous to place’s ecology. Regarding such issues, it is vital to reflect the responsibility of transportation in such places. The relationship amid tourism and transport is quite evident. It is identified by Otego 1996 that transport can be regarded as one of three basic tourism’s components, extra two being, tourism market (demand) and product of tourism (supply). Tourism competitiveness depends on the transport system competitiveness and services of travel. In real sense, the connection amid tourism and transport is asymmetrical. Transport is the catalyst factor of which tourism can’t survive. The overturn can be two since travel can thrive...
