Tourism demand is the desire of people to visit a place of interest and engage in leisure activities. The destination varies from one individual to another. However, there exist similarities in the factors that can prevent a person from visiting a place.
The first one is the price. All consumers are influenced by price. If the hotels in that destination are too expensive, you'd rather stay where you are. That means tourism demand in that destination will go down.
The second factor is season. There are two ways to look at seasons: the first one is as an event, and the second is as the weather. Take the example of the wildebeest migration from Maasai Mara to the Serengeti. This special migratory season happens between July and September. During this period, the demand for tourism is at its peak in Kenya and Tanzania.
The third factor is security. Tourism demand is low in places with high security threats. In the US, these alerts are posted on the state department's website.
The final factor is trends. Nowadays, there is a special category of famous people known as internet celebrities or influencers. People find internet celebrities more relatable because they experience similar things. As a result, influencers have a cult following on social media. The followers are eager to learn and do as the influencer says. For example, if they recommend a particular travel destination, it automatically becomes a trend. You have to visit that place to know what all the fuss is about.
