'Worldwide Destinations: the geography of travel and tourism' provides comprehensive coverage of worldwide tourism destinations, examining the basic principles underlying the geography of tourist demand, supply and transportation, together with a broad survey of world tourism generating and destination regions.
This third edition takes a more thorough approach to worldwide tourism than previous editions and looks at the market categories of tourism as well as demand; physical attractions; organization of tourism; types of destinations and their place in the tourist area life cycle.
Case studies from around the world are used to illustrate the issues involved with these particular categories, including those from the UK, Europe, USA, Australasia, Asia and the Caribbean.
