Product description

In this fascinating book the contributors explore attitudes towards motivations for holidays, interactions with service providers as they affect the quality of the tourist experience, the nature of the holiday location and the events that occur there. The latter themes include essays on urban tourism, the beach as a holiday site, the role of festivals, and Disney as a form of heritage tourism. In this revised edition, new material is introduced on concepts of time, liminalities, emotional theatre and gender considerations, as well as more detail on the contribution of humanistic psychology to our understanding of tourist motives.
