Write at least 150 Words.
The two maps demonstrate the changes made to an island after it was turned into a tourist resort.
The holiday resort which occupied about three quarter of the island consists of a reception building, a restaurant, and numerous chalets; all located within a walking distance. In addition, the reception area is also connected directly to a newly built pier which made it more accessible by visitors. For the convenience of the guests, a vehicle track that connects the pier, the reception and the restaurant was also constructed.
To further promote the island as a holiday attraction, various spots of the island have been upgraded for recreational activities. For example, swimming is now available at the beach near the west end of the island and sailing can be done near the pier of the resort.
Overall, the transformation of the island into a vacation spot has brought much improvements to the island without any deforestation. As a matter of fact, there are now more trees in the island than before.
