About the book

Tourism is a dynamic and competitive industry that requires the ability to adapt constantly to customers? changing needs and desires, as the customer's satisfaction, safety, and enjoyment are particularly the focus of tourism businesses. Tourism can be domestic or international, and international tourism has both incoming and outgoing implications on a country's balance of payments. Tourism brings large amounts of income into a local economy in the form of payment for goods and services needed by tourists. It also generates opportunities for employment in the service sector of the economy associated with tourism.

The hospitality industries which benefit from tourism include transportation services (such as airlines, cruise ships, trains, and taxicabs); hospitality services (such as accommodations, including hotels and resorts); and entertainment venues (such as amusement parks, restaurants, casinos, shopping malls, music venues, and theaters). This book will provide in-depth knowledge and types of tourism with their effect on society and the environment. In addition, the book will also discuss the association between tourism, transportation, and logistical infrastructure, and economic growth.
