Need For New Map Illustrations

There are many kinds of maps ranging from the usual maps that we usually know and use, to the campus map, to the village map, to the locations map and even, to the revolutionary 360-virtual map. Nowadays, maps can now be interactive thanks to the newest and latest technology plus skills in working with map illustrations. To begin with, illustrated maps are products of art. It requires the careful combination of one’s hand control in using the pencil, a high quality set of photos plus the rightful incorporation of today’s technology. If combined properly, you will be able to see a more comprehensive view of the location from the perspective of a bird’s eye. In addition to this, illustrated maps are now modifiable depending on the specific needs of a client at present and, at the certain point in the future because the location that is pictured in the maps is constantly changing and maps are needed to be updated on a regular basis.

As mentioned above, maps are needed to be upgraded to make sure that they are time-appropriate in today’s changing world. Since the world continues to change to this point in time, the world sorely need newer and more updated map illustrations to give us, humans, better viewpoint on how the world has drastically changed in the last 20 years. To be able to give the world new maps that will provide us answers through abstraction and information reduction because like it or not, a map with an overloaded amount of information can’t simply provide answers, the leaders in the industry of cartography must help each other and take advantage of the people’s needs for a map for every situation people may be in whether they are commuting to get to work, making the biggest business decision of their career or simply, looking for a new place to dine with family because they want to try something new. The rest of the world needs new map illustrations that are simpler and easier to understand because our questions have been growing more complicated like how we can get to a place safely using the train system in London.

How Hotels Pamper Their Guests Through The Use Of Technology

Guests were surprised upon a reaching a hotel when they spotted an iPad that has been loaded with apps that they can use to order food, to call for a car and to gain information about the hotel. This is an example on how most hotels in the United States and other parts of the world use technology to bring convenience to their guests.

Apps are not new in the hospitality industry. Apps and the use of mobile devices have exponentially grown in the industry because hotels want to pamper their guests, gain repeat business, differentiate their hotel from other brands and of course to increase revenue. These tools are available to guests 24/7 to keep them happy and to avoid the negative reviews that easily spread through social media and travel sites.

A good example is hotels in the United States that spend as much as 6% of their overall revenue to technology. According to Hospitality Technology’s 2017 Lodging Technology Study, hotels want to improve the experience of their guests on their terms and not based on what the hotel desires. The use of technology products drives loyalty and repeat business.

Hotels need to stay engaged with their guest from the time that booking is made to check-in and check-out. In the past 5 years, communication in Marriott International through mobile gadgets has quadrupled. Guests use their smart phone, tablet and laptop while staying in the hotel that is why the hotel has introduced an app in 2012 that allows guests to book for accommodation, to check-in or check-out, to receive alerts when the hotel is ready and make requests to the hotel staff.

Technology is very convenient for hotel guests because it allow them to easily resolve any problems. There is a very high satisfaction rate when the guest is happy with the hotel service.

The convenience and satisfaction of guests is the major goal of convenient hotel in Patong. The hotel offers guests a wide selection of indoor and outdoor activities, Thai cooking classes, massage therapy sessions and theme nights with a variety of Thai cuisines.

A Unique Latin American Travel Experience Through A Local Expert

Luxury travel planners have been around for a quite a while but they don’t actually pay attention to Africa and Latin America. Jacada Travels hopes to fill the gap. The British founder of Jacada Travels, Alex Malcolm reinforced his belief that Latin America can provide travellers with unique experience after exploring South America for 4 years.

Based on his Latin American experience, Malcolm believed that local experts are very important if one wants to delve into local culture. The guest will not write a review based on the hotel experience; the praise will be directed towards the excellence of local guides. Malcolm believes that his network of consultants will make a trip exceptional and provide travel experiences that consider the individual’s tastes and pace.

Malcolm hopes that when travellers visit a foreign place, they must have some connection with local life. Jacada Travels makes the effort to select private guides that are quite known in the local society. The private guides play the role of host and they are responsible for planning itineraries as well as handle any issues that crop up for the guests.

For example, in Argentina, Jacada Travels find a partner from a wine-making family to host the company’s guests. The personality must be known locally so that the guests will feel that they are walking on the streets with a royalty. It will be easier to acquire local knowledge about the area because people will not hesitate to share information in the presence of the well-known guide.

According to Malcolm, luxury travel is constantly evolving.  In the past years, high-end travel was all about beaches in private islands. Nowadays, guests appreciate local scenery and culture. Many travellers want to attach greater importance to the richness of their experiences that they even want to make a difference in the communities that they travel to.

Yes, indeed, every traveller has a different agenda but the same goal of having an unforgettable experience. Allow South America tours to arrange your travel plans according to your dreams, interests and budget. A travel specialist will work with you to ensure a perfect holiday that will satisfy your expectations.
