TOURISM SURVEY ANALYSIS
We asked 80 students between 13 and 16 years old about the way they spend their holidays and the way they would like to spend them. The survey was a multiple choice one and the respondents could choose more than one answer. What’s more, they could give their own answers and ideas.
According to the survey majority of our students usually go on holiday within Poland while 20 per cent go abroad. Unfortunately almost 20 per cent stay home and don’t go anywhere during their holidays. Among those who spend their holidays outside their home town 20 per cent go to a camp, 35 per cent travel with their parents and 40 per cent visit their families.
The next question was Where would you choose to spend your ideal holiday? The students could name a country, region or city. The most popular holiday destinations turned out to be Spain, the USA, Japan and Greece, France and England. Some mentioned Dubai, Jamaica, Hawaii or China.
41 per cent of the respondents think that our town and surroundings are attractive for tourists. They point out that there are clean lakes, rivers and forests. But 59 per cent don’t agree with this statement. They claims that there aren’t enough attractions such as monuments or shopping centres.
The next question’s aim was to check how the students spend their summer holidays while being in Złocieniec. 70 per cent enjoy swimming in lakes and almost 40 per cent goes cycling. However, not many people go camping (9 per cent) or go by boat/ kayaking (17 per cent). Sadly, 17 per cent do none of these activities which our surroundings offer.
The last task for the students was to name the places or regions in Poland that are the most attractive for tourists in their opinion. The vast majority decided that Warsaw- the Polish capital city is worth seeing. Many respondents mentioned the Polish mountains and the Baltic beaches as attractive for students. Some answers included other Polish cities like Kraków or Gdańsk and other geographical regions such as Mazury Lake District.
