TOUR20007  Tourism Studies in Asia & the Pacific Rim

Tourism is a rapidly growing phenomenon within the Asia/Pacific area. It is also considered as a primary means to contribute to development and/or economic growth. While tourism offers a widening range of opportunities, tourism growth is not without its consequences and socio-cultural objections and limitations within host communities and nations. This course examines the historical experiences of Asian and Pacific Rim countries and the impact these experiences have on both host communities and nations' attitudes to tourism and tourism policy development. The course also examines the socio-cultural, economic and environmental impacts of past, current and future tourism practices and the various tourism policies and strategies of two selected countries. The implications of these impacts, policies and strategies for the business of tourism are also explored.
