  2. 2. Tourism is deemed to include any activity concerned with temporary short term movement of people to destinations outside the places where they normally live and work, and their activities during the stay at these destinations. 2
  3. 3.  Tourism defined as “ the activities of persons traveling to and staying in place outside their usual environment for not more than one consecutive year for leisure, business and other purpose”
  4. 4. 1. 2. Visitor activity is concerned only with aspects of life outside normal routines of work and social commitments, and outside the location of those routines. The activity necessitates travel and, in nearly every case, some form of transport to the destination. 4
  5. 5. 3. 4. Specific destinations are the focus for a range of activities and a range of facilities required to support those activities. Such activities and facilities have a combination of economic, social and physical environmental effects that are the basis for tourism policy and visitor management programmes. 5
  6. 6. 1. There is nothing that restricts the total market to overnight stays; it includes same day visits. 2. There is nothing in it that restricts the total market to travel for leisure or pleasure. It includes travel for business, social, religious, educational, sports, a nd most other purposes. 6
  7. 7. 3. All tourism includes an element of travel but all travel is not tourism. The definition excludes all routine commuter travel and purely local travel such as to neighbourhood shops, schools or hospitals, etc. 7
  8. 8. 4. 5. Travel and tourism absorbs large elements of individual leisure time and encompasses many recreational activities, but it is not synonymous with either because bulk of all leisure and recreation takes place in or around home.
