Editor's Notes

  1. 1. , so they travel more
  2. Tourism's primary benefit is the profit it brings the local and regional area
  3. At first we have to make difference between explorers and leisure travellers. Explorers are people who travel in a particular continent or country for the purpose of learning about it and to discover something new. (for example they study animals, plants, culture there). The most famous are expeditions to Antarctica, because the Ice retains a lot of ancient atmospheric samples and meteorites. Leisure travellers travel in their free time for their pleasure. We know many types of leisure travel. I will present some of them. WINTER TOURISM – Winter sports such as skiing, snow boarding contribute to winter tourism. People travel to ski resorts usually during the winter holidays. Major ski resorts are located in many European countries for ex. Austria, Switzerland, France, Italy…Ski festivals have variety of events like ski competitions, ski and snow board lessons, performances and recreational activities. RELIGIOUS TOURISM - is a form of tourism, where people travel because of their religious belief. Members of many major religions participate in pilgrimages. Most Muslims try to go on a pilgrimage to Mecca at least once in their life. EDUCATIONAL TOURISM -Educational tourism developed, because of the growing popularity of teaching and learning of knowledge. In educational tourism, the main focus of the tour includes visiting another country to learn about the culture or to improve your foreign language. Student Exchange Programs are very popular nowadays. EXTREME TOURISM - Extreme tourism is for people interested in risky activities. It includes adventure tourism such as climbing mountains and hiking, scuba diving, sailing around the world, backpacking… Backpackers travel with backpack and they don’t know where they will sleep or eat. Backpacking is a low-cost, independen and also quite risky travel. MEDICAL TOURISM -Travel that includes arrangements for medical procedures, most often dentistry and plastic surgery. People travel when there is a significant price difference between countries for a given medical procedure. For example Americans now routinely cross to Mexico for medical care. Mexican dentists often charge one-fourth of US prices. Medical tourism also includes health tourism. This sort of tourism is associated with spas or places with health-giving mineral waters and so on. EXPRESS TOUR – is a package tour. Travelers see a lot of countries and famuous sites in a very short time. (package tour : a holiday at a fixed price in which the travel company arranges your travel, hotels and sometimes meals for you )
