Is Night Tourism viable without Proper Security Arrangements for Tourists, Travelers?
At many destinations tourists just leave after sunset for lack of interesting options. So the concept of night tourism, focusing on experiences and activities that take place after the night has set in, was introduced in different parts of the world, encouraging tourists to stay back. For instance, recent proposal of illuminatingChandigarhlandmarks in night is just the beginning. But, what about safety of travelers at night in the city where many cases of molestation and rape in daytime have come to light in the recent past?
Chandigarh Industrial and Tourism Development Corporation Limited (CITCO) planned to illuminate major landmarks, including Open Hand Symbol, secretariats and high courts of Haryana and Punjab, assembly hall, Sukhna Lake Islands, Rock and Rose Gardens in the City Beautiful Chandigarh to promote night tourism. CITCO will also illuminate entry points such as Panchkula, Mohali and Mullanpur. The illumination plan is a bid to encourage participants and audiences of the 2010 Commonwealth Games (New Delhi) to visitChandigarh.
Full Body Scanners: Majority Air Travelers Ready to Compromise on Privacy
During the UK based Skyscanner Ltd’s poll, two third travelers favored the use of full body scanners at the airports for improved security. But 30% travelers disapproved the use considering privacy and health (radiation) issues. And another poll conducted by the USA Today/Gallup, based in the US, also concludes that more than 75% air travelers are in favor of using the scanner despite privacy issues.
Intelligent Planning Can Prevent PTD
I remember, in one of my treks to the Himalayas, a team member openly confessed that “hangovers” of these trips always last for a few days after reaching home. And you may also be experiencing the same after a nice winter holiday. These post travel depression (PTD) or post vacation blues- nostalgic feelings, loss of appetite and tiredness- are generally proportional to the length of the trip. But nothing to worry! They will disappear gradually. Sharing holiday experiences and photographs may reduce the blues.
But to prevent PTD, don’t plan something very hectic for the next vacations, take short vacations instead of one long one and return from vacation on Fridays. Do not forget that tourism / vacationing / holidaying connotes relaxation, rejuvenation, having fun instead of trying to see and do as much as possible in a short duration.
A Perfect New Year Gift for Climbers and Trekkers
Travelers who love enchanting, stark land of Ladakh have one more reason to rejoice: More than one hundred additional peaks are now accessible without “protected area permit.”
Are writers not human? Don’t they need money to survive?
Unfortunately, website owners believe that writers are machines and can mass produce write-ups in no time.
That is why they offer INR 5/- for a 100-word write up. ( http://sfbay.craigslist.org/forums/?ID=143703656 )
