“There are no foreign lands. It is the traveler only who is foreign.” ~ Robert Louis Stevenson

Tourism is travel for pleasure or business; also, it is the theory and practice of touring, the business of attracting, accommodating, and entertaining tourists, and the business of operating tours. Tourism can be domestic or international, and international tourism has both incoming and outgoing implications on a country’s balance of payments. Today, tourism is a major source of income for many countries and affects the economy of both the source and host countries.
