What is tourism

The word tourism —according to the UNWTO World Tourism Organization— includes “the activities carried out by people during their trips and stays in places other than their usual environment for a period of less than one year, for leisure, business or other purposes. ». If there is no overnight stay, they are considered hikers. Tourists and hikers make up the total number of visitors. Tourism can be domestic (tourists within their own country) or international... The latter is today an important source of income for many countries. In 2015 there were 1187 million international tourist trips, with the most visited countries being France (84 million), the United States (77 million), Spain (68 million), China (56 million) and Italy (46 million).
