  2. Extreme Tourism and Antarctica

    Most people will come in small groups but there are a few wealthy individuals who go by themselves. As very few people go on these types of holidays, the sector will never be as large as other tourism sectors like eco-tourism. What are the Attractions? The most popular areas for extreme tourism are Peru, Chile, Argentina, Azerbaijan and Pakistan. These areas boast difficult landscapes, hard climates and even unstable political situations. A notable example of this would be the mountainous regions of north Pakistan. They are often described as some of the most difficult landscapes in the world and, as mentioned earlier, some feel that the risky political situation (as it is near an Al Qaeda base)

  3. History of Blackpool - growth and decline.

    Due to air travel being very expensive at the time and only the rich could afford to go abroad. Blackpool became the destination to go to for the working class during their holidays. Blackpool recognised their popularity and over the years constructed three new piers to house new attractions. Three new piers were constructed, named the North, Central and South Piers and were constructed in 1863, 1868 and 1893 respectively. The Winter Gardens, which was effectively an indoor mall, was set up in 1878 and housed an opera house and a theatre.

  4. Study of Housing Issues in Nottingham

    This is not only for all of the reasons listed above, but in Nottingham, there are in fact many free houses in the city for people to move into. These houses however are not being used. This is because all of the unoccupied houses are in the Inner City, in areas like St Ann?s, the Meadows and Sneinton, places which are viewed as undesirable as prospective house-buyers.

  5. Greenwich Millennium Village - Sustainable Living

    The gasworks were eventually closed in the late-20th Century, and so it was replaced by the Greenwich Millennium Village, as there were already the necessary gas, water and electricity connections for a new development, and the land was cheap and it was unnecessary to use greenfield sites for the same reason. The GMV has a variety of features available to make it the unique sustainable community that it is.

  8. Tourism in Antarctica

    People normally go on extreme holidays because they seek a sense of adventure and an adrenaline rush. They attract people who desire a holiday that is away from the norm, and prefer to go to places yet untouched by tourist development. They like to see sights that can?t be seen anywhere else, and wildlife that can?t be seen anywhere else (Icebergs and Emperor Penguins respectively). In addition to this, there is obviously the striking natural beauty of Antarctica which cannot be seen anywhere else, which naturally attracts tourists in and of itself. What attracts tourists to Antarctica?

  9. How has Tourism changed in Blackpool since the 19th Century?

    Air travel was very expensive and only the very rich could afford to go on holidays abroad. Blackpool grew as tourist destination and proceeded to build great visitor attractions such as the North, Central and South Piers in 1863,1868 and 1893. Pleasure Beach was the name given to the coastline of Blackpool, and this this was further expanded when small businesses set up along the stretch between the North and South piers, to take advantage of customers from Blackpool Station. The Winter Gardens were set up in 1878, as a sort of 5 indoor mall complex, with a Theatre and Opera House, meaning that Blackpool was a popular destination no matter the weather.

  10. Is Mass Tourism good for Kenya?

    This, in combination with the Kenya being situated on the Great Rift Valley, resulting in stunning scenery and diverse wildlife makes Kenya an even more attractive tourist destination. Because of this, Tourism is the largest income earner in Kenya, creating many jobs such as for hotel staff, waiters in restaurants and bartenders at bars, airport staff and tour operators, who all make a living off tourism, and in turn, the government can earn more money off taxes from these people, and also, increased business means that the government can earn more from airport tax.

Conclusion analysis

Good conclusions usually refer back to the question or title and address it directly - for example by using key words from the title.
How well do you think these conclusions address the title or question? Answering these questions should help you find out.

  1. Do they use key words from the title or question?
  2. Do they answer the question directly?
  3. Can you work out the question or title just by reading the conclusion?
  • Compare two seaside towns that I visited in March 2003. The two towns, Frinton-on-Sea and Walton-on the-Naze can be located side by side on the east coast of Britain.

    "My results for the town centre EQA shows that my opinion for the two towns was very different from one another. But, for the seafront EQA the results show that I don't really have an opinion on either of the two towns. This has affected my conclusion as it helps to disprove one of my predictions. Perhaps the reason for this is that I didn't try hard enough to differentiate between the two seafronts at the time of the trip. If I had tried to be more self-convincing about how I did the marking, I would have acquired better and more reliable results. I could improve my methods by being more accurate about my opinions and the results that I got. 1"

  • The aim of this project is to identify and discuss relevant Synergies, Dependencies, Vulnerabilities and Conflicts between Air Traffic Services and Airport Operations.

    "Conclusion The interface between ATS and AO is a vital part of the Aviation System. Both these elements aim to promote safe and efficient air transportation. AO focus upon the transition of passengers and cargo to and from aircraft and airport whereas ATS focus upon the transition of aircraft between airports. Air travel has increased rapidly during the past 30 years and will continue to do so. Air traffic control systems and airport operations have increased their role in the system and both most work effectively to ensure air travel safety. Airport capacity will continue to expand to accommodate for airport operations and aircraft and so the air traffic control system has to be efficient in dealing with the rise of movements.

  • Compare the jobs of property owners and the change in pricing of properties over the years.

    "This graph shows the ranges in prices of different kinds of properties. Quite obviously, we see that house have a greater average price than any of the other kinds. The results from Terrace properties show a big range. These results don't seem very reliable - as there are only 2 results, which seem to contradict each other. Suites, quite obviously are quite expensive - as much as some of the houses. However, again there is one record to draw a conclusion from which devalues its strength of reliability. This is the same with the "Apartment" result, which lies at about the pricing. "Flats" and "Flat/Block" are averagely priced lowest in relationship to the other properties. These results are quite accurate, as they are taken from many different areas around London - however, I know that flats can range greatly in price - which mostly contradicts my results."
