A tourism consulting assignment undertaken by You Gov has come up with some interesting observations. The idea was to uncover nationals of which country are the most welcome abroad. The Japanese come right on top. This is consistent across markets such as Spain, France, Great Britain and Finland. Scandinavian travelers scored well in other countries, part of their region. Surprisingly, German travelers don’t have that good a reputation, even in Spain where they flock to, in large numbers. Nationals from Germany and the UK are also most critical of their own behaviours, while those from Denmark, Spain and Italy have the most positive image of themselves. On the other side of the scale, Chinese travelers are most unpopular in South- East Asia.

Something which until recently, was considered purely the preserve of science fiction books and cinema, may soon become reality. A project titled as the Von Braun Station is set to be concluded by the year 2025, when the first ever space hotel will orbit around the earth’s atmosphere. The concept of design thinking has become embedded as part of the scheme, with the team eager for the interiors to be aesthetic, so humans can connect to the place. Behind this project is the Gateway Foundation, that plans to ensure space travel gets accessible for many. These can then serve as ports of call for missions to moon, mars and elsewhere. ‘Field trips’ will also be planned from the space hotel.

The city of Turkestan in Kazakhstan, is home to the Mausoleum of Ahmed Yassavi. It has long attracted pilgrims from far and wide, and is now proving to be a beacon for attracting other tourists as well. Several tourism jobs are being generated in this Central Asian country based around this monument. At one stage, this mausoleum built by the Great Tamerlane, had the reputation of being the second- most important pilgrimage spot for Muslims. It has also found a place on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. During several periods of restoration such as those in 1923 and then in 1994, lost artefacts were also rediscovered.

As per business intelligence shared by the Belgian Statistical Office, tourism is doing very well in the country. Both the Walloon as well as the Flemish region have seen steady growth in room booking numbers at 5 and 7 percent respectively. But the highest growth has been clocked at Brussels, with double digit figures at 10 percent. Both business travelers as well as leisure tourists are common in Brussels. But it is the latter that is causing the main hike, as the former was already a substantial presence. Among inbound travelers, those from France and the USA make up the highest numbers, but it has also been boosted by tourists form India, Taiwan and Japan. The biggest advantage the city has as yet, is that is isn’t a mass popular destination like say Paris or Barcelona.

Greenland plans to focus more on its tourism. For this purpose, its two airports are set for expansion by the year 2023. The frequency of direct flights from the USA and Europe can thus be increased. However, there are environmental fears to such business innovations. Climate change has already compromised a significant part of the ice, which is now thawing quicker than at any point before. The native inhabitants have also faced increased challenges to their livelihoods, with hunting area being threatened due to rising temperatures. Tourism would also contribute to increased carbon dioxide emissions, thereby causing havoc to the world’s second largest ice sheet.
