I need help in identifying topic for my thesis in tourism and development. I am from East Africa, Ethiopia.
I think I am interested in the areas- Community based tourism development and tourism planning.
Since you indicate an interest in community based tourism planning and development, start with that basis. Are you interested in comparing what New York City does compared to Los Angeles or Toronto, Canada? Are you trying to find out the necessary steps to creating tourism through planning and development for a community?Are you looking at how Ethiopia could do tourism planning? In thinking about your own country, choose a community from Ethiopia and try to list ideas that would fit into drawing tourism into that community or area. What planning would be necessary for tourism to succeed? Think about attractions, safety, infrastructure, food etc. Does anything pop up as more attractive than others? I had to outline several ideas to find out where my interests really were and to refine the initial ideas into the central idea. Good luck.
