9780080970400: Worldwide Destinations: The geography of travel and tourism

Worldwide Destinations: The Geography of Travel and Tourism is a unique text that explores tourism demand, supply, organisation and resources for a comprehensive range of destinations worldwide. The sixth edition is brought up to date with features such as:

  • An exploration of current issues such as climate change, recreational preferences, demographic changes and the social impacts of tourism.
  • An extended chapter on Asian tourism to reflect developments in the travel industry.
  • Improved full colour presentation, packed with helpful teaching suggestions, including discussion points and assignments to encourage greater student involvement.

The first part of the book comprises thematic chapters which detail the geographic knowledge and principles required to analyze the tourism appeal of destinations. The subsequent division of the book into regional chapters enables the student to carry out a systematic analysis of a particular destination, by providing insights on cultural characteristics as well as information on specific places.

Worldwide Destinations: The Geography of Travel and Tourism is an invaluable resource for studying every destination in the world, by explaining tourism demand, evaluating the many types of tourist attractions and examining the trends that may shape the future geography of tourism. This thorough guide is a must-have for any student undertaking a course in travel and tourism.
