The attractions in an area are a key consideration for a traveler in choosing a destination for one to visit. When considering a destination to visit, one must be attracted by something that they have either heard about from others, something they have seen on the internet or being aired /advertised in any other form of media channel or something they learnt about in their course of school work. In an effort to satisfy their desire to be part of and to see these attractions, one is drawn to the destination that offers these attractions. Thus a country that has many interesting attractions and one that has marketed them appropriately will always get very high number of tourists visiting it throughout the year.
Attractions range from natural features such as mountains, water bodies, forests and different facilities such as parks, reserves and sanctuaries that have a variety of wild animals for one to see and learn about. These natural features attract so many nature lovers and people who love adventure and explorations. For instance, by visiting a destination in an African country, one is likely to experience this by going for tour safaris in the very expansive parks and a tourist will enjoy seeing the animals such as the big five and also enjoy the rough terrain found in the parks since there are no modern roads inside these parks. Most people in the early years of life would choose a destination that has these natural phenomena since they have the energy to do all activities that involve a lot of body practice such as mountain climbing, rock gliding or even going for long nature walks. More Senior citizens can also enjoy nature by going for safaris since by so doing they will enjoy all nature has to offer from the comfort of their tour vans.
On the other hand, one may be attracted by super and mega structures in a country such as the thrill of spending a night in the world’s tallest hotel in Dubai or having a ride in the rollercoaster in South Africa. Many developed countries have defied many rules of physics and they have built phenomenal structures that give travelers a reason to visit their countries. These include man made attractions such as the floating Palm Island and the world shaped island, the twisting tower, the underwater hotel all in Dubai to mention just but a few . Such facilities such as accommodation in these hotels charge a lot of money even for just one night but tourists are always willing to spend that money just so as to take home these memories. It’s therefore advisable for any country that wants to get more visitors coming to them, to invest in this breath taking architectural work which will keep visitors flowing to their countries to experience them.
Thus in conclusion, it’s clear that apart from other considerations one makes before travelling to a given destination, attractions, whether natural or manmade are a key point for one to consider when they want to travel. A tourist will choose a destination that has more to offer according to their tastes and preferences.
