Abstract

The purpose of the study is to explore variables that university-associated members perceive to be important when they dine out for business purposes. The study explores whether importance of these variables are different according to demographic and dine out characteristics. Independent-sample t-test and Analysis of variance (ANOVA) are utilized for this study. The study indicates that variables that people consider more important compared to other factors are ones that directly related to peoples’ dine out experiences. Items that are not directly related to actual dine out experience appear to be less important to university community members when they dine out.

Abstract

People in the tourism industry in Luang Prabang have garnered some background, knowledge and experience of the industry. However, they need to improve their abilities in order to keep afloat in a competitive business environment. Developing the labour market in Luang Prabang is difficult, though, because of the lack of an overall development plan, the scarcity of individual motivation, limited budgets, the shortage of qualified people in the tourism management field in either the private or public sectors and limited collaboration for tourism development. Research findings are reported upon concerning these issues and recommendations are provided for rectifying the shortcomings identified and strengthening the sustainable development of the tourism industry of Luang Prabang.

Abstract

It has been more than a half decade that the very destructive tsunami hit Banda Aceh, the capital city of Nanggroe Aceh Darussalam Province, located at the northern part of Sumatra Island. So far the urban planning and development in the city is focusing on reconstruction and rehabilitation, which can be absolutely understandable considering the devastating impact of tsunami at that time, however as the time passes by, a new intention has to be created to the conservation effort not only to uphold the value that Aceh once had, but also as an attraction to boost tourism.The paper argues that, despites some challenges in the interpretation and institution side, Puenayong would be the suitable place for conservation in Banda Aceh. Peunayong old shop-houses still retain the heritage architectural value. The long history of the area and the typical old Chinese architectural type of shop-houses make the area just the place for conservation. The regular maintenance by the owner such as painting, cleaning, and other efforts to protect old materials from decay have enabled this old shop-houses still stand at its architectural value today. As the economic value of the area is now increasing, reuse strategy could be used to maintain the character and the architectural value of the shop-houses and at the same time enhancing the environment quality of the site for tourist attraction.

Abstract

This study examined vocational teachers’ and administrators’ perception of ASEAN cooperation in tourism training and identify factors affecting their perception. A documentary and questionnaire were employed to collect data. At least 79 percent of respondents agreed that ASEAN information is disseminated widely, clearly, continuously and it is easy to recognize ASEAN publications among others. However, information about the regional cooperation in tourism training in particular was not considered to be adequate. Administrators and teachers in general had positive attitudes toward ASEAN cooperation. Yet while respondents did not appreciate the impact of differences in national culture and school formal organization procedures on ASEAN cooperation, the results of this research showed that nationality and school status do influence their perception, and thus, guide their behavior in cooperation. The data also revealed a fact that schools value resources that ensure quality of training provision rather than existing relations or financial resources of a potential partner.

In this research, historic building assets conservation is treated as a model in implementing asset management. Asset management model is implemented in many places in managing infrastructure network, but has never been implemented in historic building management in Indonesia. Quite different than any other modeling in general, the case for historic building should iteratively relate to the characteristics and issues of historic buildings and any management opportunities that can be done by the government as the responsible party in managing historic buildings. Asset management implementation in this research initiated with identifications of related attributes of the historic building assets based on available and applicable management possibilities. This paper shall not explore the detail exposition of each attributes found, but the approach that is implemented through asset management which shows comprehensive understanding on this issue of historic building management.The effort of understanding the issues and types of management that is possible in historic building that then may give rise to the identification attributes of this issue that shall be the start of asset management implementation for historical buildings based on information system. It is also understood that this study may be further developed especially in drilling down the attributes used prior to asset management model implementation.
