It is worthwhile to note that the more safety a place can offer, the greater the attraction of the destination to investors and multiple attraction provided adds value and will improve the chance of a successful destination. It is important that the destination planner takes into account the diverse definition of culture. Satisfying tourist interest is a prime consideration as it marks the initial phase of the development of a cultural destination. Tourist want souvenirs, arts, craft, and cultural manifestations and in many tourist destinations, craftsmen have responded to the growing demand and have made changes in design of their products, to bring them more in line with the new customer tastes.
