Destination websites are transforming into simpler, but more attractive visual designs, with the perfect balance between commercial transactions and information becoming the standard. However, a lot of destination websites were created using page design templates and content management systems that offer the user little control on how each page will look. Some design related issues can affect leisure and tourism webpages although these can be improved. They include the proper placement of content on each page, sorting and filtering, writing style and the use of images.
