  • Introduction : The geography of tourism is dominated by number of key themes, which relate location, place and space, human and cultural characteristics, and the movement of people or mobility. The geography of tourism is also concerned with the flows of tourism from generating countries to destinations. These can be heavily influenced by economic and political factors, with the flows of tourism traditionally being from western developed countries to less developed countries.

  • The Geography Of Resources For Tourism : With a growing demand for tourism focused on a resource base. Different types of tourism will have distinctive requirements for growth, and certain sites, regions or countries will be more favorable for development than others, we can examine tourism resources on 3 scales, • Global • National • Local 9
  • Characteristics Of Tourism Resources :Tourism resources have three main characteristics,• Tangible features• Most tourism resources are not used exclusively by tourist• Tourism resources are perishable 10
  • Tourism Resources At Global Scale :Physical features The land surface of the earth is composed of a variety of landforms which we can broadly group into four categories. - Mountains - Elevated plateaus - More gently sloping hill lands - Low land plainsCultural features A country’s resources in the arts, culture and entertainment so-called ‘creative industries’ are at least important as its physical resources and sport facilities in attracting tourists. 11

  • Relationship Between Climate And Tourism: • People in tourist activities directly contact with the atmosphere, and tourist activities are influenced by climate. Pleasant climate conditions may attract tourists and urge tourist industry making progress; but unpleasant climate conditions can block the development of tourist industry. Climate, as a natural element, takes part in building tourist landscape directly or indirectly. 13
  • How Climate Change Impact To Tourism: • Climate change have a significant impact on global tourism. Climate defines the length and quality of the tourism season, and it plays a major role in the choice of destination and tourist spending. • Climate change is a major factor influencing the geography of consumption of tourism. The area most affected by the 2004 Asian Tsumami have taken some time to recover from the blow to their tourism trade. 14
