What makes a destination popular? Basically, it depends on what it has to offer a tourist; tourists have a wide variety of needs to meet.
For this section we will be looking at the following destination features
- Natural attractions
- Built attractions
- Purpose-built attractions
These are the features which contribute massively to a destination’s popularity.
Look at the images below, match each attraction to the correct feature
All of the attractions in Activity 1 are found in Wales, there are similar destination features found in other UK destinations.
See if you can produce a similar table of attractions in one other UK popular tourist destination. You might like to carry out your research with a classmate.
Use the Internet to help you, make notes and save images as you research.
Prepare a PowerPoint presentation on a tourist destination of your choice from your notes in activity 2 describing the range of destination features found there. Present your findings to the rest of your class.
