TOURIST INFORMATION OFFICES


The tourism department operates tourism information offices in many origin
countries. A tourism information office promotes, or builds, travel to a destination
country through advertising and special promotional activities. For example,
representatives of the information office give brochures about vacations, the
destination country, and special tours to travel agents in the origin country. A brochure
is a printed folder, or pamphlet, about a place, product, or company. Brochures
advertising tourism are written, printed, and supplied to information offices in origin
countries by the tourism department.

Mr. Carter is the director (manager) of a tourism information office. He has a
large staff. A staff in a business office is a group of people who work together. The
staff includes people who work directly with travel agents; others who do work with
companies and businesses; people who contact newspapers and television and radio
stations; some who work with airlines and hotels; people who write advertising; and
information clerks and secretaries.

One of Mr. Carter's most important jobs is that of public relations director. The
purpose of this job is to establish a good attitude toward his country among the public
(people) of the origin country. As part of this job, he supervises the writing and
distribution of press releases (news stories) for the media. Media refers to all the ways
of spreading information, such as newspapers, radio, television, and other means of
communication. Media is a plural word, meaning it refers to all these means. Radio is
a medium of communication; it is one of the media used for advertising. Public
relations people place special news stories in the media to help build interest in the
destination country. Advertisements in the media, paid for by the tourism department,
also help establish interest.

Employees in public relations and advertising must be fluent in English if they
work in English-speaking countries. "To be fluent" means to speak, read, and write a
language almost as well as the natives do. Mr. Carter's staff members write
advertisements, news releases, and brochures to promote travel to their country. They
give lectures (talks) and show films about their country to groups of people. They
answer questions about travel to their country.
English for Tourism page 5

Mr. Carter holds press conferences whenever something of importance or
interest happens in his country. A press conference is a meeting attended by reporters
from newspapers, magazines, radio, or television. At a press conference, someone
makes announcements that their readers, listeners, or viewers might find interesting.
Whenever an important person from his country visits, Mr. Carter holds a press
conference to introduce that person to the representatives of the media. Such news
items help to build interest in and knowledge about his country.

Information offices also give tourists and immigrants helpful information. The
clerks give them any necessary documents or visas that may be required for entrance.
The staff can also tell them about different laws and regulations in the destination
country.

Mr. Carter and his staff also work with businesses and industries that might be
interested in either moving to or doing business with the destination country. Mr.
Carter's country wants foreign industries to come and help build industry there. The
country is also interested in exporting some of its products. In turn, the country is
anxious to get the best prices on products imported from other countries.

Wherever they go and whatever they do, the information staff members
represent their country. "We are the face of our country to the rest of the world," Mr.
Carter says. "Before they know anything about our country, people form their
impressions and attitudes about it from the things we do and say."
(Adapted from English for the Travel Industry
by Benedict Kruse and Bettijune Kruse,1982)

Which of the following things is better for a tourist to explore Can Tho City, buying a
package tour or organizing a tour himself?

2. Reading

LOCAL TOURS
Tours, or trips, to places within a city or country are known as local tours. Local
tours can be of two types. First, there are one-day trips around a city or area. Second,
there are local tours that can take from two days to a full week and can include an
entire country.
Local tours are arranged by tour packagers. Sometimes the packager is also a
tour operator and provides the equipment and the guides for the tours. The packagers
make up the itinerary, which is the schedule or listing of the places to be visited, and
prepay (pay in advance) for any admission fees that may be charged. An admission fee
is the charge to enter a place. It is usually prepaid on tours. If the tourists will stay
overnight, the packager also arranges for hotel accommodations. Sometimes meals as
well are included in local tour packages.
Tourists can arrange for local tours in two ways. They can reserve space on
tours as part of a package they buy from their travel agent at home. In this case, all
reservations are made before the tourists leave their own country. The arrangements
are set before they arrive at the destination country.
The second way tourists can arrange for local tours is to have a travel agent
make arrangements once they get to the destination country. Some tourists like to
make plans and reservations for local tours after they have arrived and learned more
about what they might like to see. They prefer not to have every day of their vacation
planned ahead.
(Adapted from English for the Travel Industry
by Benedict Kruse and Bettijune Kruse, 1982)

CITY TOURS

On the day of their city tour, the Silver wakes early. When Mr. and Mrs. Silver
leave the coffee shop, the concierge greets the Silvers with a smile. The concierge
gives Mr. Silver the tickets for the tour and says, "I'm not busy at the moment. Let me
walk with you to where the bus will pick you up. I'll introduce you to the tour guide
personally."
Soon the tour bus stops at the curb. The driver opens the door and the tour
guide climbs down. As he has promised, the concierge introduces each member of the
family to her.
She says: "Welcome. I'm Francine Miller, your guide for this tour. I'll tell you
all about the things you will see. If you have any questions, please ask. It's my job to
answer them. All my time is free to talk to you sightseers." Sights are places or things
to see. Sightseers are people who go to see these sights, or places of interest. Local
tours are sometimes called sightseeing tours.
When the Silvers board (get on) the bus, Mrs. Miller introduces them to the
driver. Then she takes them to the seats that were reserved (saved) for them. When
they are all comfortably seated, the driver starts the bus.
Before the driver became a tour bus driver, he spent many years driving a taxi.
In that way, he learned all the streets of his city. He is an experienced driver, which
means that he has had practice driving in many different or difficult situations, and
drives safely and well. In addition to knowing all the streets, he also knows all the
traffic regulations. Only the most experienced drivers can get jobs on tour buses. He
has also been specially trained to drive a tour bus. He drives carefully past the places
that tourists want to see. He is also careful to avoid stopping suddenly or speeding up
quickly.
People have confidence in a careful driver. Confidence means that they believe
the driver does his or her job well and safely. Passengers feel comfortable riding with a
driver in whom they have confidence. The driver feels that making passengers
comfortable is an important part of his job.
As the bus moves through the city streets, the guide tells the sightseers about
the places and buildings they are passing. They pass a large group of low buildings
English for Tourism page 22
surrounded by a park. "That's a medical center with many different hospitals. The long
low building with the playground next to it is a children's hospital."
The children ask if there are many sick people in the country. Mrs. Miller
replies: "Every country has sick people. I don't know if we have more or fewer sick
people than anywhere else. But I do know that we are very lucky to have such a fine
medical center to help people get well."
When Mr. Silver asks how many other hospitals or medical centers there are in
the country, Mrs. Miller is able to tell him. An important part of her job as a tour guide
is to answer the questions people ask. Another part of her job is to explain the history
of parks or monuments they pass.
After about 40 minutes of such sightseeing, the bus stops in front of a large,
modern building. "This is our national museum," says the guide. "You will find many
interesting works of art and historical displays inside. As you leave the bus, I'll give
you a brochure that will tell you about the museum."
"Is it in English?" Tommy asks.
"May we keep it as a souvenir?" Janet asks.
Mrs. Miller answers yes to both questions and continue: "Inside you will find
signs in English telling about the exhibits. You will also find a display called a
diorama, a small-sized model of the entire city and the countryside around it. Around
this diorama are several telephones. Pick up one of the phones marked 'English' in
order to hear a description of the city. You will also hear about some of the places we
saw on the way here. In addition, the recording will tell you about some of the exhibits
in the museum and some of the places we will see later this afternoon."
As they leave the bus, Mrs. Miller tells the sightseers: "You have one hour to go
through the museum. Then we'll meet back at the entrance. I'll take you to the museum
restaurant where we'll have lunch."
As the Silvers are leaving the museum after lunch, Janet asks the tour guide,
“Can we stop for a moment? I want to buy some postcards to send to my friends. The
stamps in your country are so pretty.”
Each member of the family buys several postcards at a sales counter just inside
the front door of the museum, near the diorama. Then Mrs. Silver asks: “Would you
mind taking the pictures of us standing on the front steps of the museum?”
Tour guides often receive this type of request. Tourists like to have pictures of
themselves visiting faraway places. The tour guides are often asked to take the pictures
so that the whole family or group can be in the photograph.
During the afternoon, the tour goes to a large crafts market. Built by the
government, the market contains many stalls (enclosed spaces) where people display
(show) and sell handicraft items, clothing, and souvenirs. The family walks around the
market. They stop and look at many items. Suddenly, all four members of the family
have the same idea at the same time, buying some shirts as souvenirs.
Back on the bus, the family agrees that they have enjoyed every bit of the tour.
They will take home memories of a pleasurable, interesting day. The souvenirs they
bought will remind them of the pleasurable experiences they had.
(Adapted from English for the Travel Industry by Benedict Kruse and Bettijune Kruse,
1982)
