Introduction
Tourism in an interdisciplinary field, which influences the sectors of hotels, resorts, airlines, restaurants, tour operators, and many other domestic and international sectors. As the tourism potential of a country grows, the ability of the country to generate more foreign income and undergo rapid development changes increases (Goeldner & Ritchie 2011). Not only the public sectors of a country are affected by its rate of tourism, but private sectors are also equally affected (Buhalis & Costa 2006). The hospitality industry is directly dependent on the tourism support of the industry. Foreigners, when come to visit a place, they tend to book rooms in hotels rather than renting a house. This is where a major chunk of the hotel industry is generated. Tourism has received substantial attention over the last few decades, emerging as one of the predominant income sources of a. European countries have outshined other countries with the steady growth in their tourism sector over the years. However, the vitality of the tourism is not limited to the Western countries alone as pronounced development and growth can be seen in a number of Asian and African countries (Brotherton 2008).

    a) One of the trends that are occurring in the hotel industry is the increase in construction in certain pipelines and areas. The Spanish influenced countries of Latin America and South America are seeing the largest increase. The increased interest in the Hispanic culture by society is driving many consumers to want to escape to the sandy beaches and the tropical oasis. The other trend is the decrease in the African and the Middle Eastern Pipelines. Much of this can be contributed to the political unrest in these countries that is covered by the media. While many still want to go on vacations to their holy lands for religious purposes or visit many ancient areas of art and documented history not many consumers are wanted to travel with young children to these areas due to the unrest and military presence and rather are looking for rest and relaxation rather than additional intellect and experience.…

    Tourism in Middle East

    • 17 Pages

    According to the World Tourism Organization in 2002, Middle East had a remarkable 16.7% increase in its overall tourist arrivals as compared to 2001 as it finished with 27.5 million tourists but gained only 3.9% of the overall world market share. The standout performer for the Middle East was Saudi Arabia contributing 27.2% followed by United Arab Emirates with 19.7% and 17.8% contribution by Egypt. The main reasons seen for this increase in the figures are due to the fact that the governments of each country are making investments in developing tourist facilities and also a strong increase in the intra-regional tourism. From this increased number of tourists, Middle East earned a total of US$ 13 billion averaging to US$ 470 per person (www.maldivestourism.gov.mv). As compared to its inbound tourism, Middle East produced only 15 million tourists which had a 2.2% share in the world outbound tourist figures but significantly it was a 10.9% increase compared to its year 2001 figures (www.world-tourism.org). So from this it is inferred that Middle East is more of an inbound region.…

    Introduction: Oman is country with an area of 309,500 sq. kilometers and a population of 3.7 million people. The mainstay of the Omani economy is oil. Total size of the economy is 81 billion USD and per capita income is 22,180 USD. The economy presently faces an imminent danger of the sharply falling oil prices. In this scenario the only plausible option for the government of Oman is to develop other alternative forms of economy drivers that can give boost to the economy in the absence of the strong economic support coming from oil exports. The government seems willing to develop the country as tourist destination as the key economic driver. There are several things that Oman can learn from other countries particularly UAE to develop its tourism. Although, the UAE economy was once based on oil but now it is no more dependent upon oil like before. It’s the tourism industry there that has taken the lead role in the economy of UAE. In comparison to UAE, Oman has more varied landscape and weather, much bigger area, far more historical sites, and above all a rich cultural heritage that is visible in the everyday life espousing values of love, care kindness and regard. The ‘tourism mix’ is just right for Oman and all that is needed is just the right infrastructure and other support facilities required for tourism. Tourism is affected by several factors like economic and political conditions, and the level of competition amongst the competing organisations in the field of tourism in the host country (Smith, 2004). Other factors are the promotional efforts of the destination; health, safety and security issues; time and cost consideration (how far away is the destination for the tourist’s home country); and seasonal variations (Page and Connel, 2009). There four categories of tourists defined by Cohen (1972)…
