With contributions from international experts, this book provides a broad discussion of cultural tourism as a concept and the way it is implemented in diverse regions around the world. It addresses the notion of cultural tourism and what it means to tourism as an industry, and also explores types of cultural tourism offered to tourists and experienced by them. Many international case studies will be included on specific instances of cultural tourism, and current topics like cultural tourism's relationship to sustainability are discussed.
