World Regional Geography addresses the need to understand the cultural, environmental, historical and political context in which international tourism takes place. The expert author team has included major themes and issues in tourism, and positioned them in a regional context. In this way, this text takes a major step into a more analytical approach to global tourism while still providing a clear account of the geography of travel and tourism.

This innovative text:

  • Develops a clear analytical framework and systematic context for the study of international tourism and travel
  • Presents a global account of travel geography organized around key regions
  • Provides regional knowledge from around the world that assists the reader to understand some of the main factors that affect tourism patterns and flow
  • Is fully supported by the website: WorldGTT.com, which is both designed and maintained by the authors
