Unique holidays instead of traditional holidays are a huge factor as many people are more adventurous and want to get everything done like eating their traditional food, learning about the culture, relaxing on the beach and meeting new people. A cruise is unique as it takes you door to door to places that are quite costly if you visit them individually and by having a variety of places to go to it will have a positive impact for both the business and travellers as they can have a repeat business by word of mouth.
Location: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil Holiday Type: Touring Visitor Motivation: Culture and History Airline: British Airways A gap‐year group can take a year out of their educational lives and take a week to tour Brazil for a week especially to visit the historical statue of Jesus Christ which is the fifth largest statue of Jesus Christ in the world today8. In this case, one student will want to go on an international travel adventure that requires independent hospitality. The student will use the airline British Airways to fly with and will fly out of the United Kingdom by using London Heathrow Airport on the 22nd of March at 12:00 and will arrive at Rio de Janeiro International Airport at 20:509.

The hotel is also close to the Copacabana Beach as well as many attractions and landmarks such as Church São Judas Tadeu, Statue of Christ the Redeemer and Cristo Redentor Statue10.
The student’s main motivation to go to Brazil is to explore the world especially in a place like Brazil as it has many attractions for tourists which include monuments, foods and excursions. Moreover, in the future Brazil will be hosting The World Cup 2014 and 2016 Summer Olympics, so it is essential for Brazil to attract tourists before, during and after these events. There is also the interest of culture and history that many people today wish to have a first‐hand experience on being educated on the way different ethnicities live and do things differently to another country or culture. There is also the historical aspect in which, people wish to learn the country’s history and why there are significant attractions still active today in the world. In Brazil’s case, why is the Christ the Redeemer so significant and important for many Christians around the world? In order to get to the Christ the Redeemer monument one individual adult must pay R$ 46, 00 which covers a round trip ticket and admission to the Christ the Redeemer’s monument11. The trip is approximately twenty minutes long. On the way back, the student will travel with British Airways at Rio de Janeiro International Airport at 22:55 and arrive at London Heathrow at 13:00. The ticket is £300 and they will be flying economy. It is essential that the student gets the lowest fares because they might not have a strong economy9.
