Travel And Tourism Travel And Tourism Presentation Transcript

  •  
  •  
  •  
    • Crown Prince Abdullah ascended the throne on King Hussein's death on 7 February 1999. He has gone to great lengths to plan long-term improvements to the economy of Jordan and is one of a new generation of Arab leaders in favour of social and economic reform. He has backed the promotion of women's rights (in 2007, for example, 20% of seats in municipal councils were reserved for women) and actively encouraged information technology, democracy, liberal economic policies and integration with the rest of the world.
    • The King Hussein Mosque
    • Mecca Mall
    • Petra
    • Amra Palace
    • Jabal al- Qala
  •  
    • Mecca Mall is one of the biggest shopping malls in the Jordanian capital, Amman. It is located in Mecca Street, and this is the reason the mall was named  Mecca  Mall . It includes a large number of stores, mostly Women Fashion shops. But it also includes Home Decor stores, Mobile Phone vendors, 22 Restaurants, 8 Cinemas, Video arcades and more.
  •  
    • Amra palace was built by the Umayyad caliphates, in the eastern Jordanian desert, as a place for hunting, and relaxation for the caliphs. It was built by the caliph Al Waleed Ben Abdelmalik in (715 AD). It is considered to be the most charming of all the other palaces and the castles in the desert, because of its outstanding construction and the fact that it contains some very beautiful fresco paintings and mosaics, representing the everyday life activities of different periods, and a unique representation of the heavens or 'zodiac'.
    • Jabal al- Qala , also called  Citadel Hill  is a historic area near the center of downtown Amman, Jordan. Known in Arabic as  Jabal al- Qala ,   , the L-shaped hill is one of the seven  jabals  that originally made up Amman. It has been inhabited since the Neolithic period [1] , making it among the world's oldest continuously inhabited places. A church atop the hill was built in the A.D. 300s by the Byzantines
  •  
    • In June 2000, after years of failing health, President Assad died. Having fallen out with his brother, Rifaat, some years earlier, and with the accidental death of his eldest son, Basil, in 1994, Assad had selected his second son, Bashar, as heir.  Syria pulled its forces out of Lebanon in 2005, after coming under intense international pressure following a UN report that implicated the Syrian Arab Republic in the assassination of former Premier of Lebanon, Rafik Hariri. Both Syria and pro-Syria Lebanese officials were thought to be involved, although this has been strongly denied by Damascus.
    • Aleppo
    • Damascus Citadel
    • Bosra
    • Aleppo Citadel
    • Crac des Chevaliers
    • The second largest town of Syria is Aleppo in the north of the country. Here in the center you find the Citadel, a large medieval fortified palace. Dating back minimum to the 9th century BC it is considered to be one of the oldest and largest castles in the world. Worth seeing are the Grand Mosque, Khans and the Suq, the longest in the Middle East.
  •  
    • An attractive place of black basalt stone is Bosra in southern Syria, once the capital of the Roman Province of Arabia Petraea. The large Roman theatre from second century, embedded in an Arab fortress and offering space for 15.000 spectators, is the main attraction. Moreover to see are some old mosques and churches. 
  •  
    • About two hours from Damascus you see the mightiest and best preserved crusader castle Crac des Chevaliers. It was built in the 12th century to dominate the pass which is the Syrian gateway to the Mediterranean. The castle was extended and strengthened by the monastic order of the Hospitallers and controlled by them for 127 years.  
  •  
    • The majority of the international community recognizes the Greek-Cypriot administration in Nicosia as the legitimate government of the Republic of Cyprus. Until 2003, this had been led for a decade by Glafkos Clerides, who was then deposed by centre-right Tassos Papadopoulos, and he in turn by Dimitris Christofias in February 2008.  The northern occupied part of the island is run by Mehmet Ali Talet, who was elected leader of the Turkish Cypriot community in 2005. President Papadopoulos oversaw the Republic of Cyprus' entry into the European Union in 2004 despite the absence of a political settlement between the two parts of the island. (This had previously been a precondition of Cypriot entry). The principal issue for the Greek-Cypriot government remains the same - how to reunify the island.

    • Kolossi Castle, Limassol
    • Ocean Aquarium, Protaras

    • A fine example of military architecture, originally constructed in the 13th century and subsequently rebuilt in its present form in the middle of the 15th century. After the fall of Acre in 1291, it served as the Grand Commander of the Knights of the Order of St John of Jerusalem
    • For those who love the sea and the creatures who live in it, the Ocean Aquarium at Protaras provides the perfect day out. It offers a memorable aquatic adventure that is both educational and entertaining. This amazing world has an equally amazing 1,000 species to enthrall all visitors, young and old alike.
    • An ancient city-kingdom with architectural remains dating back to the 13th century BC. The Church of St Lazarus is also here and is Larnaca's most impressive old building. It stands on the site of the original 9th century church, which itself was built over the tomb of Lazarus.
    • Spread over a vast area, these impressive underground tombs date back to the 4th century BC. They are carved out of solid rock with some being decorated with Doric pillars.
  •  
    • An anti-Syrian alliance, led by Saad al-Hariri, son of the assassinated former prime minister Rafik Hariri, won control of Lebanon's parliament following elections in May and June 2005. Fouad Siniora was nominated as prime minister by all but two members of the new parliament. His cabinet was composed of mainly anti-Syrian ministers, as well as a minister from Hezbollah. Lebanon's fragile peace was shattered in July 2006, when Israeli forces attacked Lebanon following the kidnapping of two Israeli soldiers by Hezbollah. Around 1,000 Lebanese were killed and much of the infrastructure destroyed.

Geologically, the caves provide a tunnel or escape route for the underground river. The total length of the cave is more than 9000 .The grotto accommodates a huge hall with a distance of 108 m from the ceiling till the water level.

    • The  Warsaw Convention  is an international convention which regulates liability for international carriage of persons, luggage or goods performed by aircraft for reward. Originally signed in 1929 in Warsaw (hence the name), it was amended in 1955 at The Hague and in 1975 in Montreal. United States courts have held that, at least for some purposes, the Warsaw Convention is a different instrument from the Warsaw Convention as Amended by the Hague Protocol
    • In particular, the Warsaw Convention:
    • mandates carriers to issue passenger tickets;
    • requires carriers to issue baggage checks for checked luggage
    • In particular, the Warsaw Convention:
    • mandates carriers to issue passenger tickets;
    • requires carriers to issue baggage checks for checked luggage;
    • creates a limitation period of 2 years within which a claim must be brought (Article 29); and
    • limits a carrier's liability to at most:
      • 250,000 Francs or 16,600 Special Drawing Rights (SDR) for personal injury;
      • 17 SDR per Kilogram for checked luggage and cargo,
      • 5,000 Francs or 332 SDR for the hand luggage of a traveler.
    • The Convention on International Civil Aviation , also known as the Chicago Convention , established the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), a specialized agency of the United Nations charged with coordinating and regulating international air travel. The Convention establishes rules of airspace, aircraft registration and safety, and details the rights of the signatories in relation to air travel. The Convention also exempts air fuels from tax.
    • The document was signed on December7, 1944 in Chicago, Illinois, by 52 signatory states. It received the requisite 26th ratification on March 5, 1947 and went into effect on April 4,1947, the same date that ICAO came into being. In October of the same year, ICAO became a specialized agency of the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC). The Convention has since been revised eight times (in 1959, 1963, 1969, 1975, 1980, 1997, 2000 and 2006). Links to all versions of the document can be found in the external links section.

    • Countries that we have selected Greece, Spain, Italy and France need only few documents to travel because we are carrying a common visa that is Schengen Visa instead of carrying individual Visa’s for each country.
    • A Schengen visa allows the holder to travel freely within the Schengen countries for a maximum stay of up to 90 days in a 6 month period.
    • The Schengen Visa has made traveling between its 15 European member countries much easier and less bureaucratic. Traveling on a Schengen Visa means that the visa holder can travel to any (or all) member countries using one single visa, thus avoiding the hassle and expense of obtaining individual visas for each country.
    • This is particularly beneficial for persons who wish to visit several European countries on the same trip. The Schengen visa is a “visitor visa”. It is issued to citizens of countries who are required to obtain a visa before entering Europe. The purpose of the visit must be leisure, tourism, or business. Upon the issuance of the visa, the visa holder is allowed to enter all member countries and travel freely throughout the Schengen area.

    • The Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) is a membership association acting as a catalyst for the responsible development of the Asia Pacific travel and tourism industry. In partnership with PATA’s private and public sector members, we enhance the sustainable growth, value and quality of travel and tourism to, from and within the region
    • Even with the clarity of vision that hindsight provides, it would be difficult to imagine a better time to have started the Pacific Interim Travel Association* than that chosen by the organizers and 91 delegates to the First Pacific Area Travel Conference in 1952. They had displayed an uncanny sense of timing in addressing an issue whose time had come, which, in the largest sense, was developing travel to the Pacific region.
    •   By the early 1950s those who had an interest in the region were facing a tremendous range of opportunities. In 1952, commercial use of the jet airplane was still several years away and so was the explosion in Pacific travel that would occur in the 1960s. However, the Pacific Area Travel Conference of 1952 began to lay the essential foundation for the boom years to follow.
    • Fast forward to the present and travel and tourism is viewed by many notable economists to be one of the great growth industries of the 21st century. The Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA)’s advantage is that it continues to influence the direction the industry takes through its unique membership structure of public-sector tourism organizations; air, land and sea carriers; and organizations engaged in the production, distribution, financing, consulting, educating and other technical aspects of the travel industry.
    •   The theme “Proud Past, Promising Future” was adopted for the 50th PATA Annual Conference in 2001, during which members reflected on their Association’s achievements. PATA has unquestionably contributed to the sustainable development and success of travel and tourism in both the Pacific and Asia; has become the leader of Asia Pacific travel and tourism. The story of PATA is the story of the Association’s dedicated people – its members, officers, board and staff.
    • First and foremost, I would like to thank Frankfinn Institute of Air Hostess Training for furnishing us with such an assignment in which I was able to put my labors and showcase my knowledge of whatever I learnt from the subject.
    • Secondly, I would say thanks to my Travel and Tourism faculty Mr. P. Ramakrishnan sir, who had been magnificent with his skills and by providing us with his vast knowledge about the travel and tourism industry. Sir developed my knowledge and skills regarding the industry and also solved all my queries regarding the assignment .
