2. What are its geographical features? Are they natural or man-made? What about accessibility?

3. Which of the five destinational group/s do you think it comes under and explain why?

4. Where is the destination on the life cycle model? Please demonstrate why you think this.

5. What products/services can the destination offer?

6. How is it presently marketed? Who would the target market/s be?. Does the destination have branding, a logo, website?

7. What marketing strategies would you use to attract visitors to the destination in the future?

Lastly reflect on what you have found out - ask yourself on a scale of 1-10 how successful you feel this destination will be and describe why this is so?
