In the last few decades, tourism has become a drive to generate more domestic revenue for a country and it is just ideal for tourists to know the types of tourism that exist around the world.
What Is Tourism?
By definition, tourism is a social, cultural, and economic phenomenon that entails the movement of people to countries or places outside their usual environment for personal or business/professional purposes.
As a matter of fact, there are countries that have harvested greatly from the outputs of tourism, and such countries are doing more to gain more. In such spirit, value must be added to the already existing tourist sites as well, and new sites must be created.
