  • An exploration of current issues such as climate change, sustainability, mobilities, emerging markets, demographic changes and the social impacts of tourism.
  • New and updated case studies throughout
  • More emphasis on emerging countries in Africa and Asia.
  • Improved full colour presentation, packed with useful learning resources such as location maps, discussion questions and assignments to aid understanding.

The first part of the book comprises thematic chapters which detail the geographic knowledge and principles required to analyse the tourism appeal of destinations. The subsequent division of the book into regional chapters enables the student to carry out a systematic analysis of a particular destination, by providing insights on cultural characteristics as well as information on specific places.

Worldwide Destinations is an invaluable resource for studying every destination in the world, by explaining tourism demand, evaluating the many types of tourist attractions and examining the trends that may shape the future geography of tourism. This thorough guide is a must-have for any student undertaking a course in travel and tourism.

" The team of Brian Boniface and Chris Cooper has again made an excellent contribution to the study of tourism geography… It also serves the undergraduate tourism student well as an essential reference text throughout their academic career.”
