Overview

As a result of the ongoing growth in the tourism industry, many destinations around the world are undergoing transformations. New destinations are being 'discovered' in regions previously ignored, as people search for regions that are yet unspoiled by the same ravages of mass tourism. At the same time, traditional destinations are experiencing rapid environmental, socio-cultural and economic modifications. These changes have the most effect on the host community — the location where tourists spend their time and money, and influence development or degradation of the local environment. This book describes both the positive and negative effects of tourism on the host community.
