TOURISM PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT
At one extreme, tourism product development can be defined as embracing all elements with which the visitor to a destination comes into contact. This includes infrastructure (e.g., transport, utilities), the service personnel, places of lodging, attractions, activities, facilities, and amenities.
At a more focused level, tourism product development can be defined as comprising only those attractions, activities, and facilities provided explicitly for the visitor. The tourism product development is the process by which the resources of a destination are shaped to meet international and domestic customers’ requirements. This covers everything from humanmade facilities or attractions to activities requiring varying levels of physical input and organized events such as festivals and conferences.
