STEPS IN PLANNING PROCESS

Like any planning, tourism planning is goal-oriented,
striving to achieve certain objectives by matching
available resources and programs with the needs and wants
of people. Comprehensive planning requires a systematic
approach, usually involving a series of steps. The
process is best viewed as an iterative and on-going one,
with each step subject to modification and refinement at
any stage of the planning process.
There are six steps in planning process:
1.     Identify the tourism system.
2.     Define goals and objective.
3.     Evaluate alternative.
4.     Select and implement.
5.     Monitor and evaluate.
6.       Different types of resource.
Tourism may also be viewed as a business in which a
community or region chooses to engage. Individual tourism
businesses conduct a variety of planning activities
including feasibility, marketing, product development,
promotion, forecasting, and strategic planning. If
tourism is a significant component of an area's economy
or development plans, regional or community-wide
marketing plans are needed to coordinate the development
and marketing activities of different tourism interests
in the community. Tourism involves people
traveling outside of their community for pleasure.
Definitions differ on the specifics of how far people
must travel
