Handbook of Tourism

Yogesh Kumar Sharma (Author) Pragya Sharma (Author)
Synopsis Tourism as a manifestation of leisure pre-supposes a socioeconomic milieu in which money and time-away-from-work can be accumulated to be spent at will. Tourism as a form of mobility suggests that culturally sanctioned reasons exist for leaving home to travel. Many countries depend heavily upon travel expenditures by foreigners as a source of taxation and as a source of income for the enterprises that sell services to these travelers. Consequently the development of tourism is often a strategy employed either by a Non-governmental organization (NGO) or governmental agency to promote a particular region for the purpose of increasing commerce through exporting goods and services to non-locals. This book is intended primarily, for tourists, students, educationists interested in planning and planners interested in tourism development and management.
