Part B: Situation Analysis & Future Plans
Using the outline, research, and introduction you prepared for Part A, prepare a report for your minister that examines the following. You can use the headings provided below as an organization guideline for formatting your paper.
Introduction and Overview of Tourism
Include content from Part A.
The Impact of Tourism
- The benefits that tourism brings to your location.
- The barriers to tourism acceptance at your location.
- The impact of tourism on your location’s culture.
- Provide a brief description of how tourism is currently managed in your location. For example, are there government departments overseeing tourism in your location? If so, how is this structured? Are there strong LOCAL tourism organizations involved in tourism?
- An overview of the training (or lack of) available to tourism employees.
Provide a brief summary of the components of a tourist destination area (TDA) at your location. Examine the adequacy of present supply (the five components noted below) with present demand (level of visitation). In other words, are the following five components of the TDA sufficient for tourism there? For each component comment on what is working and what you think could be improved. Provide evidence or examples to support your statements.
- Natural resources
- Transportation system
- Hospitality of the host
Note: If you have selected a location that you have personal experience with, your own experiences are a great starting point for research, but this report should be based on research and evidence. For example, don’t just say that the transportation systems seemed sufficient from when you were there. Do some research and reference your sources to support your statements.
Where you believe your location fits on the life cycle of a destination; justify or explain why you chose a particular stage in the life cycle.
Tourism Planning and Marketing
- An analysis of the tourism planning process (i.e. has your location gone through a tourism planning process)? If so, what steps were followed? What key dimensions were incorporated in planning (i.e. environmental, social, and economic)? If no planning has taken place, discuss how this has impacted this tourism destination.
- Using the basic 4 Ps of marketing (product, price, place, promotion), in general terms identify how your location is marketing itself today. Identify what could be changed and what could be improved for future marketing efforts.
- Based on a review of tourism trends (global and local) identify future tourism plans for your location as well as challenges that lie ahead. Identify these future tourism plans using the eight components of tourism as your framework (transportation, accommodations, food and beverage, attractions, events, adventure tourism and outdoor recreation, travel services, and tourism services). Use the next 3 to 5 years as your planning horizon. *Hint: Use the tourism planning process described in this course and your text as your example.
Summarize your main points and provide a conclusion for the minister regarding your recommendations.
Format for Case Study

11 Pyramids of Giza Student Name Institution Instructors Name Due Date Contents Pyramids of Giza 1 Introduction 3 Annotated Bibliography 7 Pyramids of Giza Introduction Egypt’s Pyramids of Giza draw visitors from all over the world. Using the statistics and data at our disposal, we will examine the development of tourism at this famous location in this paper. We can learn more about the development, trends, and prospects in tourism at the Pyramids of Giza by analyzing the changes in visitor numbers over the last ten or so years. The history of tourism at the Giza Pyramids is vast and rich. Due to its historical beauties and cultural richness, Egypt has long been a popular tourist destination. Travelers’ imaginations have been captured by the Pyramids of Giza for millennia thanks to their imposing constructions and mystifying charm (El Azazy, 2022). At first, only a few daring explorers and academics visited the Pyramids for tourism, but as accessibility and infrastructure increased, it slowly grew in popularity. The Giza Pyramids are now a well-known and developed tourist destination. With the goal of giving visitors engaging experiences while assuring the preservation of these ancient monuments, the organization and management of tourism has undergone a tremendous evolution over time. The Pyramids of Giza have maintained its status as one of the most famous and popular archaeological sites in the world by investing continuously in tourism infrastructure, lodging, and services (Hemeda & Sonbol, 2020). A wide variety of nations are represented among the visitors to the Pyramids of Giza who come from different regions of the world. The graph above shows the number of tourists arrivals visiting the Pyramids of Giza from 2010 to 2020. Due to COVID-19, Egypt’s tourist arrivals decreased from 13 million in 2019 to 3.7 million in 2020. Egypt continued to lead Africa in tourist arrivals despite the drop. With 2.3 million visits in 2020, Europeans made up the majority. In 2019, there were more than 202,430 hotel rooms in the nation, and occupancy was 62%. Their travel objectives differ as well; many come to view the historical treasures and take in the local culture, while others can be interested in archeological exploration or just looking for an unforgettable vacation experience. The peak tourism season, which runs from late fall to early spring when the weather is more comfortable, coincides with the important months and seasons for travel. However, there are chances to boost tourism at other times of the year by highlighting special occasions, festivals, or attraction. Annotated Bibliography Brichieri-Colombi, S. (2020). A spurred spiral ramp for the great pyramid of giza. PalArch’s Journal of Archaeology of Egypt/Egyptology, 17(3), 1-20. The suggestion of a spurred spiral ramp for the construction of the Great Pyramid of Giza is covered in this article by Brichieri-Colombi (2020). It offers a theoretical model that recommends using a spiral ramp system to make moving materials easier while the pyramid is being built. This material will be used to provide light on the construction methods used to create the pyramids and their architectural significance in my report on the history of tourism and the current need for tourists in the Giza Pyramids. El Azazy, S. A. (2022). Tourism Development of the Cultural Heritage and Archaeological Sites within the National Project for Urban Sustainable Development in Egypt. International Journal of Humanities and Education Development (IJHED), 4(2), 53-68. The article offers insightful information on the plans and programs put in place to promote ecotourism at destinations like the Giza Pyramids. Being published in the International Journal of Humanities and Education Development (IJHED), which signifies that it has undergone peer review, raises the credibility of the source. In my report, I’ll utilize this article to examine the national project’s efforts to improve tourist experiences, preserve cultural heritage, and manage tourism sustainably at the Pyramids of Giza.

Cham: Springer International Publishing. The Great Pyramid of Giza and its significance are the main topics of this chapter by Haas, Metzger, and Tussey (2022). It looks at how the pyramid might be used in primary school classrooms to promote disciplinary literacy and gamified learning. Even though it has nothing to do with the origins of tourism or the current level of interest in visiting the Pyramids of Giza, this source will be an invaluable resource for learning about the historical setting, architectural details, and educational uses of the pyramids. It will improve my comprehension of the cultural and educational significance of the pyramid, which is crucial when addressing its allure to tourists. Hemeda, S., & Sonbol, A. (2020). Sustainability problems of the Giza pyramids. Heritage Science, 8(1), 1-28. Hemeda and Sonbol (2020) examine the sustainability issues the Giza Pyramids are facing in this article. The source addresses several sustainability concerns and looks at how tourism and environmental factors affect the preservation of the pyramids. It will be integrated into my paper to emphasize the value of eco-friendly tourist methods and the necessity of conservation initiatives to safeguard the Giza Pyramids.

The Relationship Between Art and Advertising as Brand Management in The Case of The Classical Pyramids of Giza. Palarch’s Journal Of Archaeology Of Egypt/Egyptology, 18 (2), 642-655. The relationship between art, advertising, and brand management is examined in this paper by Jiménez-Marn et al. (2021) in the context of the Pyramids of Giza. It examines the ways in which creative depictions of the pyramids are applied as a marketing and branding strategy. This material will be used in my essay to investigate how art and advertising have helped to promote tourism at the Giza Pyramids and to talk about how branding methods have affected the current desire for travel.

Although it doesn’t specifically address the Pyramids of Giza, it offers insights on the region’s tourist industry as a whole and the effects of governmental changes on traveler demand. By using this source, I can emphasize the interaction between political forces and Egypt’s tourist sector, which may have an unintended impact on the current level of interest in visiting the Pyramids of Giza.
