From travel in the ancient and classical world, to the growth of underwater tourism in the Great Barrier Reef and the influence of the Gulf War on regional tourism, Atlas of Travel and Tourism Development is a new departure from conventional texts, providing a unique overview of the growth of the tourism industry. Divided on a regional basis, the text explores how the development of tourism destinations is related to history. It looks at the roots of tourism and how destination awareness has changed, from fourth century BC guidebooks to the wealth of information available for today's travellers. It takes the reader on a journey around the world from the forum in Rome, to Uluru in Australia, Westminster Abbey in London and the pyramids in Giza.
