Attractions are the focus for recreational and sometimes educational activities. <br />Natural attractions <br /> These attractions are completely natural and include mountains, rivers, lakes, national parks, beaches, deserts and anything which has not been made by man. <br />Man-made attractions <br /> These are products of history and culture as stated by Cooper et al 2005. Sometimes they are created for tourism purposes other times they are created for a significant reason that is not at all to do with tourism but to make a statement.
