The Training Guide
The Destination Management package should be used to help local tourism entities better plan and strategize their destination development. It focuses on key destination management principles to build on from what participants already know from managing their tourism destinations and helps them to strengthen the tourism business enabling environment. It is ideal to be participated by a healthy mix of public and private sector entities, each bringing different perspectives to the table. As an example, a group can consist of an airline company, taxi company, tourism authorities, tour operators, tour guides associations and tourism institutes. It is recommended that a Destination Management group to deal with one region/destination (consisting of several attractions). For Example, for Da Nang Region, for Sabang Island, etc.
