|Abstract: ||The increase in tourism revenue as the years go by as well as the increase in tourists has made it necessary to develop the tourist industry for greater economic gains and this can be seen in the current development of potential tourist sites into leisure and holiday resorts.
The growth in the tourism industry therefore requires the urgent development of potential tourist sites which abounds in the western region of Ghana as well as other areas to be able to meet the growing market which has been precipitated by the fact that Ghana’s endowment in tourism products in terms of her hospitality and sense of humour and rich culture has been noticed by the international tourism market.
Besides, lack of the necessary basic infrastructure tends to hamper the patronage of most of the resorts in the hinterland.
The fairly well equipped ones are found in the cities and towns of Ghana and along some of the beaches.
It has therefore become necessary to tap the immense potential provided by the natural and unadulterated rural hinterland tourist sites which have been neglected to the detriment of the tourism industry.
This project thus seeks to explore the great potential provided by the Tano Lagoon and Jaway Wharf and other attractions on the site to come out with development proposals for a leisure resort which would go a long way to satisfy both local and international tourism needs as well as provide leisure for people in the western region of Ghana.
In pursuance of this objective, a lot of data collection was done and these were documented. These include what exists in and around the site and the analysis of some figures and facts. Their advantages and disadvantages were carefully considered and thus translated into proposals and finally into the production of this design thesis report.|
