Tourism is basically travelling to another destination for the purposes of recreation, leisure, or business.

A person who travels to a destination and stays outside of where they usually live for more than 24 hours but less than one year is recognized as a tourist by the World Tourism Organization.

The type of tourism depends on the reason for travel. Travel can be to destinations that are domestic or international.

Domestic tourism involves residents travelling only within their country.

Inbound and Outbound tourism both describe types of international tourism.

Inbound tourism involves non-residents travelling within a country.

Outbound tourism, involves residents travelling within another country.

There are also many other types of tourism that fall under a “niche” or specialty travel category. This category of travel has evolved in recent years, and describes the various reasons why people travel for recreation, business or leisure.
