Tourism generates jobs and promotes long-term growth, benefiting local economies. The Mughal emperor Jahangir called it "paradise on Earth." Snow-capped mountains, enchanting gardens, majestic waterfalls, apple orchards, deep gorges, and poplar, deodar, and chinar trees are among J&amp;K's top attractions. Tourism is big business in J&amp;K. Tourism, the country's largest service industry, boosts the state's GDP, foreign exchange, employment, and tax revenue. Jammu and Kashmir are popular tourist destinations due to their successful development. The Covid-19 outbreak hit Kashmir just as the tourist season was starting, dampening spirits. Travel and tourism have spread a novel coronavirus that is highly contagious. This jeopardises the industry's future. This paper examines how the COVID-19 lockdown has affected the tourism industry and other activities. COVID-19 is expected to have significant effects on Kashmir tourism through 2020, resulting in reduced visitor numbers and travel restrictions. The pandemic had severe consequences for the economic development of Kashmir Valley, located in the Indian state of Kashmir. Poorer people (tourist stakeholders) were also severely harmed; the findings show the COVID-19 pandemic's early effects on tourism and cost.</p> 2022-08-31T09:31:40+07:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Showkat Ahmad Dar Tourist’s Profile of Agritourism in The Mekong Delta 2022-08-31T09:30:34+07:00 Hanh Nguyen Lan Ngo <p>As the largest agricultural region and one of the seven tourist regions of Vietnam, the Mekong Delta has many favorable conditions for agricultural tourism. However, this potential has not been fully realized. The advantages of agritourism development are widely recognized, but many agritourism ventures are not as successful as they should be. The point is that farmers need to understand tourists and tourist products before they deliver their services. Most previous research has attended to farmer/landowners’ and local communities’ perceptions of and attitudes toward agritourism development rather than the nature of agritourists. Drawing from an on-site survey of 650 tourists at Mekong Delta agritourism sites, this study provides insight into potential visitors as well as those who already visit such destinations. This information can help providers of agritourism products to understand their customers better and offer more focused and effective marketing strategies. </p> 2022-08-31T09:31:40+07:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Hanh Nguyen, Lan Ngo Quantitative Study on Food Aesthetics, Marketing Mix, and Customers’ Satisfaction Among Restaurant Establishments in Calamba City, Laguna, Philippines 2022-08-31T09:30:34+07:00 Angelica F Costales Sherwin B Sapin Maria Agustina Rosario Bethzaida S Decena Sharon L Ramos Myrna O Medrano <p>Restaurant customers nowadays expect tasty food and aesthetic appeal as part of their overall experience. This study analyzed how the aesthetic value of restaurants affects customer satisfaction and the use of food aesthetics to build a consumer satisfaction model based on the image and atmosphere of the restaurant, the experiential value, as well as the consumption loyalty among restaurant establishments in Calamba City, Laguna, Philippines. The survey questionnaire consisted of the demographic profile of the customers, their assessment on the food aesthetics in food presentation, the respondents’ perception of the impact of marketing mix on customer satisfaction, and the level of their satisfaction. Quantitative descriptive-correlational research design was employed with 100 respondents selected using random sampling technique. The study discovered that there was no significant relationship between the demographic profile and customers’ satisfaction; there was a substantial connection between the assessment of food aesthetics in food presentation and customers’ satisfaction; and there was a significant relationship between the perception on the  marketing mix effects and customers’ satisfaction. </p> 2022-08-31T09:31:40+07:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Angelica F Costales, Sherwin B Sapin, Maria Agustina Rosario Bethzaida S Decena, Sharon L Ramos, Myrna O Medrano Platformization of Travel and Tourism Real Estate: A Study on the Operation of Online Tourist Accommodation Booking Platforms in Sri Lanka 2022-08-31T09:30:34+07:00 Lasika Madhawa Munasinghe Terans Gunawardhana N.C. Wickramaarachchi R.G. Ariyawansa <p><em>Tourism enterprises, products and experiences, market environments, and destinations have all undergone major transformations due to digital technologies. The traditional roles of tourism producers and customers have also been changed by digitalisation, with the emerging new roles, partnerships, business models, and competencies. Therefore, it is essential to pay attention to these developments to make Sri Lanka a better tourist destination. As such, the present study explores the digital presence of tourist accommodation establishments in Sri Lanka with the intention of providing insights for a National Digital Strategy. The study is exploratory in nature and internet-based research methodology and reviewing of relevant literature.<strong> </strong>The study found that most Star Class, Unclassified and Boutique Hotels in Sri Lanka have a website and facilitate their customers to book their accommodation through the website equipped with a booking engine. In comparison, most Guest Houses, Heritage Bungalows, Heritage Homes, Home Stay Units, Hostels, Rented Apartments and Rented Homes do not have a website. It was also found that a large and growing proportion of tourist accommodation service providers who provide their services through third party Online Booking Platforms are not registered with the Sri Lanka Tourism Development Authority. This trend has been identified as a standard and compliance risk for all stakeholders in the industry. This study would be helpful for policymakers to understand the growing importance of these platforms and introduce incentives and appropriate guidelines for the sustainability of the tourism industry. </em><em></em></p> 2022-08-31T09:31:40+07:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Lasika Madhawa Munasinghe, Terans Gunawardhana, N.C. Wickramaarachchi, R.G. Ariyawansa Potential Feasibility of Menggung Coffee as A Product of Local Wisdom in Sewu Kembang Tourism Village Nglurah Tawangmangu 2022-08-31T09:30:34+07:00 Yohanes Martono Widagdo <p><em>The Sewu Kembang Nglurah Tourism Village area of Tawangmangu, which incidentally is a tourist destination producing ornamental plants, also has the potential for local wisdom for other products besides ornamental plants, namely Menggung Coffee. As the name implies, Menggung Coffee is attached to the heritage of Menggung temple as the name of the coffee brand. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to review the identification of the potential feasibility of Menggung coffee, starting from the coffee beans, the production process, and also the product packaging and menu of Menggung coffee variants. The research method used is a qualitative method with descriptive analysis, which focuses on the results of interviews with 1 Menggung Coffee producer, 1 Wangsul coffee producer, 1 Nglurah village head, 1 Nglurah community leader, and 2 Menggung coffee consumers. The results of the study contained several potential feasibilities in Menggung coffee. The first potential is the feasibility of Menggung coffee beans, which are original coffee from Nglurah Tawangmangu, which incidentally is Javanese coffee from the slopes of Mount Lawu. Although both come from the same parent, Menggung Coffee, when processed, has a different aroma from coffee on other slopes of Mount Lawu. Another potential feasibility of Menggung coffee is in the processing process using the slow roast technique for Arabica and Fast Roast for Robusta and does not use preservatives in its production. However, the potential feasibility of packaging and variant menus needs to be improved considering that the P-IRT license has not been taken care of by the Menggung coffee producer so that later this brand can be claimed by outside parties and also needs to improve the menu variants in the future so that they can compete with other coffee products. </em></p> 2022-08-31T09:31:40+07:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Yohanes Martono Yohanes Martono Widagdo The Challenges of Sustainable Tourism Development in Ethiopian National Parks, the case of Nechsar National Park (NNP) 2022-08-31T09:30:34+07:00 Semere Getahun Abebe <p><em><span lang="EN-US">This study is conducted with the aim of assessing the challenges of sustainable tourism development in Ethiopian national parks. The study used primary data for the problem under study. Using judgmental sampling, 381 tourists were selected from the total tourist population at the destination. And an interview was conducted with experts in the tourism industry. The data collection has been undertaken for 2 consecutive months, February- March 2021. A descriptive approach was used to analyze the data collected. </span></em><em><span lang="EN-US">Most of the tourists visiting Nechsar National park are local tourists while Europe takes the largest share in the number of tourists among foreign tourists. Under-development of roads, communication, accommodation, shopping, financial institutions, and other services has been found as a challenge in the development of sustainable tourism at the destination. On the other dimension, the lack of effective marketing to promote the spot and the lack of effective protection for the natural beauty of the destination have been underlined as the challenges confronted in the development of sustainable tourism. Safety and security issues and lack of strong commitment from the government in promoting businesses at the destination had also their own contribution to hampering the development of sustainable tourism. The multi-dimensional challenges that NNP was currently experiencing call for a collaborative effort from suppliers and expert side stakeholders to build a tourism industry that takes social, environmental, and economic attributes into consideration.</span></em></p> 2022-08-31T09:31:40+07:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Semere Getahun Abebe Outdoor Tourism in Pandemic: Community Health and Welfare Solutions 2022-08-31T09:31:40+07:00 Euis Puspita Dewi Maya Syafriana Effendi Ahmad Muhammad Thantawi Siti Sujatini Henni Henni <p>Outdoor tourism is becoming a trend and is increasingly in demand during the pandemic. This tourism is considered the safest and most comfortable choice after two years of the community being limited in all their activities. This article aims to observe what forms of outdoor tourism are and how these tours are a solution to maintaining health and supporting community welfare. Through a qualitative approach with a case study method, it can be found forms and ways in which outdoor tourism in Sentul, Bogor can provide solutions for the health and well-being of the community. The interview method with the Sentul Community Local Guide manager was also carried out to extract data on all outdoor tourism activities in Sentul. The result of this research is a shift in the tendency of public interest in tourism from the form of mass tourism to tourism that is private or small groups. Outdoor tourism that uses the concept of Community Based Development (CBT) is a solution to maintaining health and improving community welfare during a pandemic. Outdoor tour packages with various choices, ranging from nature-based tours to sports, therapy, and adventures, are offered to enhance physical and mental health after the pandemic. Local communities' involvement can increase the economy's level while creating sustainable tourism. Smart Tourism is a solution going forward to integrate all outdoor tourism facilities into One Stop Sentul Tourism. </p> 2022-08-31T09:31:40+07:00 Copyright (c) 2022 Euis Puspita Dewi, Maya Syafriana Effendi, Ahmad Muhammad Thantawi, Siti Sujatini, Henni Henni
