Chapter 1 Notes – Tourism in Perspective 00:20 Bon Voyage! Tourism is the world’s largest industry.  Tourism industry is global. It is big business and will continue to grow.  What is Tourism? Any attempt to define tourism and to describe its scope fully must consider the various  groups that participate in and are affected by this industry.  There are four different perspectives of tourism: a.1. The tourist – seeks various psychic and physical experiences and  satisfactions. a.2. The businesses providing tourist goods and services – see tourism as an opportunity to make a profit a.3. The government of the host community or area – plays important role in  tourism policy, development, promotion, and implementation a.4. The host community – see tourism as a cultural and employment factor.  Effect between tourists and locals may be beneficial or harmful, or both Tourism can be defined as the processes, activities, and outcomes arising from the  relationships and the interactions among tourists, tourism suppliers, host governments,  host communities, and surrounding environments that are involved in the attracting and  hosting of visitors.  The economic concept also considers the income multiplier of these tourist  expenditures.  It is difficult to gather statistical information that scholars can use to develop a database, describe the tourism phenomenon, and do analyses.  Many definitions of tourism are based on distance traveled, the length of time spent,  and the purpose of the trip. United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) Definitions “Tourism comprises the activities of persons traveling to and staying in places outside  their  usual environment  for not more than one consecutive year for leisure, business,  and other purposes.” a.1.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
