A classic example is when you are looking for somewhere to stay on holiday. If you are going on a paradise island vacation, such as the Whitsundays and Hamilton Island, then you do not want this picture postcard beauty blighted by choosing a room, suite or apartment that is not the right style for you and your holiday companions. Nobody wants to behold the wonder of the Great Barrier Reef whilst staying in an inadequate or unsuitable hotel.
Whilst there is no disputing quality, what people want varies. You might want a modern, luxury house to stay at which feels like a home away from home. You might want to find some Airlie beach accommodation, another Whitsundays beauty, right next to the sands, or perhaps near to the lagoon which is the focal point here. An apartment with ocean views could offer a retreat and just the tonic you need. If you have never been to this destination, or even this part of the world, there is no reason why you should know in advance what to expect when it comes to where to stay and also what is available.
Those who work locally know their area and should be easily able to advise potential holidaymakers on what possible good options are available for resting their heads at night after a day of lounging on the white sands. You might want to be in a luxurious place but still near to shops and attractions so that you can feel a bit of life around you. On the flip side the whole point of your visit might be to spend time in a quiet idyll, that is private and where you can completely relax in peace and quiet. Anyone working in this location should know what the layout is, as well as the general atmosphere of specific geographical areas, to avoid holidaymakers feeling dissatisfied.
