    This term was first used in 1996.
    For tourism researchers, The most attractive point of dark tourism is, it concentrates on personal characteristic of tourists instead of destination.

  • 11. Doomsday Tourism: Refers to the thinking that you should hurry up and visit particular places which are under threat, usually as a result of environmental problems and global warming.
  • 12. Suicide Tourism: This particularly dark side of dark tourism generally takes two forms. The first involves people traveling to a particular destination with the intention of committing suicide, often by jumping from a famous landmark.
  • 13. A second form of suicide tourism takes into account the various laws related to euthanasia in different countries. For example, in several European countries like Belgium, the Netherlands and Switzerland, active euthanasia is not illegal, and terminally-ill people sometimes travel there to end their life legally
