Cultural aspects of tourist needs

Cultural aspects of tourist needs

TPT, Teorija i Praksa Turizma (3-4): 36-38

Much emphasis is given to the economic impacts of tourism, sometimes to the exclusion of cultural research in this sphere. It is argued that tourism is undisputably a cultural phenomenon. The connections between culture and tourism are evident in the fact that: through tourism different cultures are brought together; emphasis is given to cultural factors for the sake of tourism; and tourism itself evolves a type of culture.
