Domestic tourism in developing countries is rapidly outstripping international tourism and could soon involve ten times the numbers. This is an examination of the numbers involved, their profile, behaviour, impacts and the relevant policy responses. The volume looks at the impacts of local mass tourism in various socio-economic and environmental contexts and on diverse social groups. It provides analysis and overviews of seven of the main countries involved in Asia, Africa and Latin America.

Environmental Politics

'This book is informative and offers some necessary insights into domestic tourism.'
Geographical Journal

'A book on domestic tourism with a Third World focus was long overdue, and Ghimire has done a very good job of providing an overview of the key issues and pulling together interesting case study material.'
Development in Practice

This book shows how traditional purposeful journeyings - pilgrimages, festivals and fairs and celebrations - are mutating into the distractions of the leisure industry.'
The Ecologist, October 2001
