Travel and tourism ================ A 21st century modern man equipped with cell phone, pagers and laptops is overburdened with responsibilities, ambitions and that extra competitive edge endowed upon him by his education and experience . While on his way to his work place he is busy working out the minute details of his presentation he is supposed to make………all the while becoming more and more lonely . The glimpse of a larger than life hoarding through his vehicle window, depicting a snapshot of some beautiful mountain – posing in all it’s grandeur for a consumer durable good, makes him feel momentarily happy as the window frame changes the slide to some, more appropriate dusty silhouette of a bus, car, tree etc. This good feeling lingers around for a while until it’s overshadowed by his workaholic persona. A trip to the country side with family, a bare – footed walk on a sandy beach, slipping into hunting boots and getting lost in some reserve forest is what we long for, at the end of a day’s work, but….a lot of ifs and buts come out of nowhere during the tour planning process and we eventually end up either aborting the tour or suffer due to wrong planning. The travel and tourism industry stretches itself beyond what it literally means and thrives on the requirements of travelers worldwide. Sometimes a tourist himself is not sure where he wants to go, there are financial constraints, permit constraints and last but not the least accessibility to the place constraints. The travel agent appointed by you is supposed to have a solution to all of these problems. Travel and tourism agents can organize local, national and international tours; they are competent enough to guide you to some place you would like to go to when you are undecided about that thing. This industry is really a live and happening one and that is possible because they can arrange for everything – from ticket booking, permission etc.
to hotel accommodation . Some good houses offer tour packages – both national and international. Tour packages consist of a cluster of places of tourist interest and depending on affordability the tourists can choose. From costly and lavish accommodations to fairly priced ones there’s one for every pocket size. As far as ticket booking is concerned some agents even offer far more economical tickets, which would otherwise have been more costly if the tourist himself books it. Packages generally offer specified number of meals, sight seeing, some free rides (where applicable), subsidized fares for children when the group has a specified number of adults etc. Some agents even offer free tours once in a while both national and international to its life time members. All these services would definitely cost you a fee but, had you otherwise planned yourself for the tour chances are pretty high you would have ended up lamenting for that extra buck you paid to some thug offering you economical tickets or affordable accommodation or for the hassle you had to bear to get a small problem wrinkled out. To sum it up a tourist nowadays should consult a travel and tourism pro before planning for a tour so as to make the best use of his money and experience ultimate enjoyment and hospitality. >>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>>>>> ;>>>>>>>>>>&g t;>>>>>>>>>>& gt;>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
