Travel is the movement of people between distant geographical locations. Travel can be done by foot, bicycle, automobile, train, boat, bus, airplane, ship or other means, with or without luggage, and can be one way or round trip.Travel can also include relatively short stays between successive movements and Bigtimeafrica is ready to serve.
Tourism is travel for pleasure or business; also the theory and practice of touring, the business of attracting, accommodating, and entertaining tourists, and the business of operating tours.Tourism may be international or within the traveler’s country. The World Tourism Organization defines tourism more generally, in terms which go “beyond the common perception of tourism as being limited to holiday activity only”, as people “traveling to and staying in places outside their usual environment for not more than one consecutive year for leisure and not less than 24 hours, business and other purposes”.
Tourism can be domestic or international, and international tourism has both incoming and outgoing implications on a country’s balance of payments.
Personally, I have to agree, especially as I sit in a curious place, a busy information juncture fed by multiple data streams involving the active and growing local-travel segment of the industry.
Directly relevant to – but distressingly absent from – almost everything in which I am engaged are all of the special entities officially charged with promoting destinations, whether a town, city, region or country. These include destination management/marketing organisations (DMOs), convention and visitors bureaus (CVBs) and private public relations agencies.
