Contemporary Tourism Reviews
The CTR series provides accessible and structured overviews to all areas of research in the broadly defined subject of tourism with links to original sources of information, sites, books and journals as well as a complete glossary of terms, allowing the reader to research as deeply as they wish. Available instantly as downloads, each review provides the equivalent of printed pages in an interactive PDF format.
All of the reviews are academically rigorous and immensely readable. Each review has a common structure—an introduction to the development of the field, a survey of current thought, an exploration of the key debates and extensive references. Each review uses mini- cases and examples to illustrate the concepts. The series is edited and commissioned by Professor Chris Cooper of Oxford Brookes University with the help of an Editorial Board composed of well-known international tourism academics.
Each CTR author has an acknowledged reputation in the topic he or she has written and is experienced in presenting the material to novices and experts alike. New reviews will be added as new topics emerge and existing reviews will be updated regularly to maintain their relevance.
A glossary of all the concepts and terms covered in the whole series is available free of charge with the purchase of any CTR title. NEW - Regional Reviews Complementing the existing series, Regional Reviews provide 'packets' of tourism knowledge, focused on tourism destinations in an online format for download.
Each regional review reflects not only the current status of tourism at the destination, but also the contemporary issues it faces. Tourists have a wide range of budgets and tastes, and a wide variety of resorts and hotels have developed to cater for them. For example, some people prefer simple beach vacations, while others want more specialised holidays, quieter resorts, family-oriented holidays, or niche market-targeted destination hotels. The developments in air transport infrastructure, such as jumbo jets , low-cost airlines , and more accessible airports have made many types of tourism more affordable.
The WHO estimated in that there are around half a million people on board aircraft at any given time. This is facilitated by internet sales of tourist services. Some sites have now started to offer dynamic packaging , in which an inclusive price is quoted for a tailor-made package requested by the customer upon impulse. There have been a few setbacks in tourism, such as the September 11 attacks and terrorist threats to tourist destinations , such as in Bali and several European cities. Also, on 26 December , a tsunami , caused by the Indian Ocean earthquake , hit the Asian countries on the Indian Ocean , including the Maldives.
Thousands of lives were lost including many tourists. This, together with the vast clean-up operations, stopped or severely hampered tourism in the area for a time. Individual low-price or even zero-price overnight stays have become more popular in the s, especially with a strong growth in the hostel market and services like CouchSurfing and airbnb being established.
Sustainable development implies "meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. For a destination to be truly sustainable it must have an equal balance among the three pillars. Economic is in relation to money and making and maintaining a certain amount of cash. Environmental is of course in relation to the environment it looks into whether the local ecosystems can support the influx of visitors and also how these visitors effect the ecosystem.
Then finally Socio-cultural is about how well the culture of this area is able to maintain its traditions with the incoming tourists. These pillars are important because they are the true key to being sustainable when discussing tourism. Sustainable tourism can be seen as having regard to ecological and social-cultural carrying capacities and includes involving the community of the destination in tourism development planning that was done e.
It also involves integrating tourism to match current economic and growth policies so as to mitigate some of the negative economic and social impacts of ' mass tourism '. Murphy advocates the use of an 'ecological approach', to consider both 'plants' and 'people' when implementing the sustainable tourism development process. This is in contrast to the ' boosterism ' and ' economic ' approaches to tourism planning, neither of which consider the detrimental ecological or sociological impacts of tourism development to a destination.
However, Butler questions the exposition of the term 'sustainable' in the context of tourism, citing its ambiguity and stating that "the emerging sustainable development philosophy of the s can be viewed as an extension of the broader realization that a preoccupation with economic growth without regard to its social and environmental consequences is self-defeating in the long term. Ecotourism, also known as ecological tourism, is responsible travel to fragile, pristine, and usually protected areas that strives to be low-impact and often small-scale. It helps educate the traveler; provides funds for conservation; directly benefits the economic development and political empowerment of local communities; and fosters respect for different cultures and for human rights.
Take only memories and leave only footprints is a very common slogan in protected areas. The movie tourism is a form of tourism for those who visit the film and television locations, i. In addition to organized tours and not to film locations lately has widened the tendency to a type of tourism, linked to the cinema, which relates to events, conventions and more like the case of the Dizionario del Turismo Cinematografico.
The Dizionario del Turismo Cinematografico is an artistic costume movement originally born as a journalistic column on various online and paper publications officially in with a genesis formed in the previous decade but, in the following years, it has become a real costume fashion popularized in sites, associations, institutions, municipal administrations, political parties, movements and television listings all over the world.
It also includes Museums and Sports Groups linked to its brand. The purpose of the work is varied: from the redevelopment of territorial areas thanks to the artistic interest raised to be film and fiction locations Movie tourism to promote events linked to the Cinema as film anniversaries, festivals, parties to theme Toga Party, Monster Party, Cosplay Party, Hollywood Party, Pajamas Party, etc. We wanted to differentiate from Movie Tourism a fashion that has existed for several decades to be more varied and not limited to tourism that is a part of the Dizionario del Turismo Cinematografico.
In the mids, the student of video advertising and journalistic communications at the Turin branch of the Fellini Institute Davide Lingua called Dave Lingua , obsessed with customary phenomena, has in mind to create a totally new object to redevelop areas territories hit by the crisis but fun and that leads to fashion accessible to all. This is the genesis for the creation of the Dizionario del Turismo Cinematografico. A few years later between , the beginning of the collaboration, and creates with this name a column which initially deals with Cine tourism, Cinema Museums and Costume Party with a cinematic theme within the site in that period related to the homonymous paper magazine of the Milan group Mondadori filmtv.
In the following period the Dizionario del Turismo Cinematografico appears as a column in various newspapers and magazines the Netweek group, La Voce, is mentioned in La Stampa and many other newspapers and officially appears as a cultural movement that gives full freedom to all to join simply using the Dizionario del Turismo Cinematografico respecting however the topics of interest of the movement coming to create totally independent sections but always within legally registered bodies or associations , with their own statutes and directives but with only provided that the official founder helped at the beginning by the first members Davide Lingua is recognized as Permanent Director for life in fact director and not president because he wants to underline the journalistic origin of the project.
From its birth until today the Dizionario del Turismo Cinematografico is a worldwide journalistic column, television broadcasting, has sections in many associations, institutions that collaborate with municipal administrations, has dealt with the official celebrations of film shooting anniversaries for example Salasco of the film Bitter Rice , appears in the credits of many films for the collaboration given, organizes communication courses, cultural and sporting events, etc.
Volunteer tourism or voluntourism is growing as a largely Western phenomenon, with volunteers travelling to aid those less fortunate than themselves in order to counter global inequalities. Wearing defines volunteer tourism as applying "to those tourists who, for various reasons, volunteer in an organised way to undertake holidays that might involve aiding or alleviating the material poverty of some groups in society".
These were the first large scale voluntary sending organisations, initially arising to modernise less economically developed countries, which it was hoped would curb the influence of communism. This form of tourism is largely praised for its more sustainable approach to travel, with tourists attempting to assimilate into local cultures, and avoiding the criticisms of consumptive and exploitative mass tourism.
Pro-poor tourism, which seeks to help the poorest people in developing countries, has been receiving increasing attention by those involved in development; the issue has been addressed through small-scale projects in local communities and through attempts by Ministries of Tourism to attract large numbers of tourists. Recession tourism is a travel trend which evolved by way of the world economic crisis. Recession tourism is defined by low-cost and high-value experiences taking place of once-popular generic retreats.
Various recession tourism hotspots have seen business boom during the recession thanks to comparatively low costs of living and a slow world job market suggesting travelers are elongating trips where their money travels further. This concept is not widely used in tourism research. It is related to the short-lived phenomenon that is more widely known as staycation.
When there is a significant price difference between countries for a given medical procedure, particularly in Southeast Asia , India , Eastern Europe , Cuba  and Canada  where there are different regulatory regimes, in relation to particular medical procedures e. Educational tourism is developed because of the growing popularity of teaching and learning of knowledge and the enhancing of technical competency outside of classroom environment. In educational tourism, the main focus of the tour or leisure activity includes visiting another country to learn about the culture, study tours, or to work and apply skills learned inside the classroom in a different environment, such as in the International Practicum Training Program.
Creating a sustainable atmosphere it creates a chance to inform and encourage sustainable practices. An example of event tourism would be the music festival South by Southwest that is hosted in Austin, Texas annually. This is a perfect example because very year people from all over the world flock to this one city for one week to sit in on technology talks and see a whole city of bands perform.

These people are being drawn here to experience something that they are not able to experience in their hometown which is exactly what event tourism is about. Creative tourism has existed as a form of cultural tourism , since the early beginnings of tourism itself. Its European roots date back to the time of the Grand Tour , which saw the sons of aristocratic families traveling for the purpose of mostly interactive, educational experiences.
More recently, creative tourism has been given its own name by Crispin Raymond and Greg Richards,  who as members of the Association for Tourism and Leisure Education ATLAS , have directed a number of projects for the European Commission , including cultural and crafts tourism, known as sustainable tourism. They have defined "creative tourism" as tourism related to the active participation of travellers in the culture of the host community, through interactive workshops and informal learning experiences. Meanwhile, the concept of creative tourism has been picked up by high-profile organizations such as UNESCO , who through the Creative Cities Network , have endorsed creative tourism as an engaged, authentic experience that promotes an active understanding of the specific cultural features of a place.
More recently, creative tourism has gained popularity as a form of cultural tourism, drawing on active participation by travelers in the culture of the host communities they visit. The growing interest of tourists  in this new way to discover a culture regards particularly the operators and branding managers, attentive to the possibility of attracting a quality tourism, highlighting the intangible heritage craft workshops, cooking classes, etc.
Experiential travel or "immersion travel" is one of the major market trends in the modern tourism industry. It is an approach to travelling which focuses on experiencing a country, city or particular place by connecting to its history , people, food and culture. The term "experiential travel" has been mentioned in publications since ,  but it wasn't discovered as a meaningful market trend until much later.
One emerging area of special interest has been identified by Lennon and Foley   as "dark" tourism. This type of tourism involves visits to "dark" sites, such as battlegrounds, scenes of horrific crimes or acts of genocide , for example concentration camps. Its origins are rooted in fairgrounds and medieval fairs. Philip Stone argues that dark tourism is a way of imagining one's own death through the real death of others. Populo sites transmit the story of victimized people to visitors. Based on a study at Yad Vashem , the Shoah Holocaust memorial museum in Jerusalem, a new term— in populo —is proposed to describe dark tourism sites at a spiritual and population center of the people to whom a tragedy befell.
Learning about the Shoah in Jerusalem offers an encounter with the subject which is different from visits to sites in Europe, but equally authentic. It is argued that a dichotomy between "authentic" sites at the location of a tragedy and "created" sites elsewhere is insufficient. Participants' evaluations of seminars for European teachers at Yad Vashem indicate that the location is an important aspect of a meaningful encounter with the subject.

Implications for other cases of dark tourism at in populo locations are discussed. This issue cannot be understood without the figure of trauma. Social tourism is making tourism available to poor people who otherwise could not afford to travel for their education or recreation. It includes youth hostels and low-priced holiday accommodation run by church and voluntary organisations , trade unions , or in Communist times publicly owned enterprises. In May , at the second Congress of Social Tourism in Austria, Walter Hunziker proposed the following definition: "Social tourism is a type of tourism practiced by low income groups, and which is rendered possible and facilitated by entirely separate and therefore easily recognizable services".
Also known as "Tourism of Doom," or "Last Chance Tourism" this emerging trend involves traveling to places that are environmentally or otherwise threatened such as the ice caps of Mount Kilimanjaro , the melting glaciers of Patagonia , or the coral of the Great Barrier Reef before it is too late. Identified by travel trade magazine Travel Age West  editor-in-chief Kenneth Shapiro in and later explored in The New York Times ,  this type of tourism is believed to be on the rise.
Some see the trend as related to sustainable tourism or ecotourism due to the fact that a number of these tourist destinations are considered threatened by environmental factors such as global warming, overpopulation or climate change. Others worry that travel to many of these threatened locations increases an individual's carbon footprint and only hastens problems threatened locations are already facing.
Religious tourism, in particular pilgrimage , can serve to strengthen faith and to demonstrate devotion - both of which are central tenets of many major religions. Given this, the perceived image of a destination may be positively influenced by whether it conforms to the requirements of their religious self-identity or not. Excessive hordes of visitors - or of the wrong sort of visitors - can provoke backlashes from otherwise friendly hosts in popular destinations.
It has been suggested there is a strong correlation between tourism expenditure per capita and the degree to which countries play in the global context. This is why any projections of growth in tourism may serve as an indication of the relative influence that each country will exercise in the future.
There has been a limited amount of orbital space tourism , with only the Russian Space Agency providing transport to date. A report into space tourism anticipated that it could become a billion-dollar market by Since the late s, sports tourism has become increasingly popular. Events such as rugby , Olympics , Commonwealth Games , and FIFA World Cups have enabled specialist travel companies to gain official ticket allocation and then sell them in packages that include flights, hotels and excursions.
As a result of the lates recession , international arrivals suffered a strong slowdown beginning in June Growth from to was only 3. This slowdown on international tourism demand was also reflected in the air transport industry, with a negative growth in September and a 3. The hotel industry also reported a slowdown, with room occupancy declining.
In worldwide tourism arrivals decreased by 3. However, evidence suggests that tourism as a global phenomenon shows no signs of substantially abating in the long term. It has been suggested that travel is necessary in order to maintain relationships, as social life is increasingly networked and conducted at a distance. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

They are also confronted increasingly by the luxurious global products of Western indulgence which remain far from their reach, rather like the thirsty Tantalus in his elusive pool of water.
