Tourism

It is defined as "travelling to and staying in places outside their usual environment for not more than one consecutive year for leisure, business and other purposes". Tourism is commonly associated with international travel as well as refers to travel to another place within the same country.

Tourist

A tourist is a person who is travelling or visiting a place for pleasure, usually for sightseeing and staying in hotels.

Domestic tourism

Domestic tourism is the tourism of resident visitors within the economic territory of the country of reference.

International tourism

International inbound tourists (overnight visitors) are the number of tourists who travel to a country other than that in which they have their usual residence, but outside their usual environment, for a period not exceeding 12 months and whose main purpose in visiting is other than an activity remunerated from within the country visited.

Economy

The large set of inter-related economic production and consumption activities which aid in determining how scarce resources are allocated.

Winter tourism

The coldest season of the year, between autumn and spring, astronomically from the December solstice to the March equinox in the N hemisphere and at the opposite time of year in the S hemisphere.

Mass tourism

It is a form of tourism that involves tens of thousands of people going to the same resort often at the same time of year. It is the most popular form of tourism as it is often the cheapest way to holiday, and is often sold as a packaged deal.

Adjectival tourism

It is the numerous niche or specialty travel forms of tourism; each with its own adjective.

Sustainable tourism

It is the concept of visiting a place as a tourist and trying to make only a positive impact on the environment, society and economy. A key aspect is respect for the people who call the location home, the culture and customs of the area, and the socio-economic system. While sustainable tourism is sometimes confused with ecotourism, ecotourism is actually only one aspect of sustainable tourism.

Ecotourism

Responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment and improves the well-being of local people. Tourism directed towards exotic natural environments, intended to support conservation efforts and observe wildlife.

Educational tourism

It is one of the fastest growing areas of the travel and tourism and one that is too often overlooked by tourism professionals and marketers is “educational tourism.”

Creative tourism

Tourism which offers visitors the opportunity to develop their creative potential through active participation in learning experiences which are characteristic of the holiday destination where they are undertaken.

Experiential Tourism

It is an outgrowth of a global movement toward experiential learning, whereby people create meaning through direct experience.

Social tourism

It is “all of the relationships and phenomena resulting from participation in tourism, and in particular from the participation of social strata with modest incomes. This participation is made possible, or facilitated, by measures of a well-defined social nature.

Space tourism

It is space travel for recreational, leisure or business purposes. A number of start-up companies have sprung up in recent years, such as Virgin Galactic and XCOR Aerospace, hoping to create a sub-orbital space tourism industry. Orbital space tourism opportunities have been limited and expensive, with only the Russian Space Agency providing transport to date.

Sports Tourism

It is defined as a specific travel outside of the usual environment for either passive or active involvement in competitive sport where sport is the prime motivational reason for travel and the touristic or leisure element may act to reinforce the overall experience.

Inbound tourism

It is defined as comprising the activities of non-residents travelling to a given country that is outside their usual environment, and staying there no longer than 12 consecutive months for leisure, business or other (corresponding) purpose.

Out bound tourism

It comprises the activities of residents of a given country travelling to and staying in places outside their country of residence and outside their usual environment for not more than 12 consecutive months for leisure, business and other purposes.

Hospitality

It is defined as taking care of your guests and anticipating their needs.

Hospitality services

Hospitality is a much better word than service to describe what we should be providing; words like cordial, generous reception, kindness, consideration and warmth say it equally well.


*Unofficial 2014 Impact Factor was established by dividing the number of articles published in 2012 and 2013 with the number of times they are cited in 2014 based on Google search and the Scholar Citation Index database. If ‘X’ is the total number of articles published in 2012 and 2013, and ‘Y’ is the number of times these articles were cited in indexed journals during 2014 then, impact factor = Y/X
