9780844817439: Tourism Planning: Basics, Concepts, Cases

Completely rewritten and updated, the third edition of this volume integrates the idea of balancing tourism with protection of the resources upon which it depends. If sustainable development is to be achieved, every kind of tourism needs examination, special policies, and planning. What separates this book from its predecessors is its format. The chapters are split into two parts, allowing for greater examination of tourism planning basics (Part 1) and planning concepts and examples (Part 2). Many diverse issues are covered, including: the purpose of tourism planning, tourism sectors (business, nonprofit, governmental), goals for development; external factors (natural and cultural resources, finance, labour, governmental policies, etc.), components of supply (attraction, services, transportation, etc.), ecotourism, regional planning concepts and cases, destination planning concepts and cases, and site planning concepts and cases.
