Q. 14

What is tourism ?

Answer :

Tourism is when people travel to other places for recreation rather than for business. It has become one of the tertiary activities with most registered jobs. Tourism helps locals a lot as it opens employment opportunities for them. Some regions have seasonal tourism depending upon the climatic conditions and some have tourists coming all year long.

Some of the factors that attract tourists are:

Landscape: Many people like to spend their holidays in different landscapes like mountains, rivers, forests, etc. Every year people visit hill stations to be more close to nature.

History and art: The history and art of a place attract people all around the world. People go to museums, architectural structures, palaces, temples, etc. to explore the historical influences of a place. For example: People all over the world comes every year to see the beauty of Taj Mahal.

Climatic Conditions: Many people travel to other places to escape the climatic conditions of their regions. For example many people in summers travel to colder regions or people from colder regions travel to places with warmer climates to escape cold.

Economy and Culture: People often visit other places to experience the culture of a place i.e to enjoy the local cuisine, local traditions, handcrafted clothes or items, etc.
