Issue Date: 20-Nov-2014
Abstract: Tourism is becoming more than an economic venture with increasing travels for leisure. Various interventionist approaches have been adopted to improve the tourism sector in Ghana including constructing roads and leisure centres. In this thesis, a mathematical model for nding an optimal route for selected tourist sites in the Kwahu zone of Ghana. The study found out the possible implications of the optimal route on the cost of embarking on leisure travels in the Kwahu zone of Ghana. The distances between the tourist sites were thus determined. The grid points of the sites were also taken and recorded. Genetic Algorithm was applied to the data set and the study revealed that the total minimum distance for the selected tourist sites is One Hundred and Forty-Seven and two { tenth (147.2) kilometres. The study also showed that with this optimal route, the total cost of touring the sites would be signi cantly reduced. This consequently will make resources available to the tourists.
