This book provides a down-to-earth introduction to this complex and multi-faceted industry. This invaluable introduction is written for all students of tourism and all those involved in the industry who want to know more about the structure, component activities and environment within which they work. Tourism is one of the growth sectors recognized for its role in socioeconomic transformation and improvement in the livelihoods of rural communities in developing countries including Uganda.

  Tourism is widely considered as an effective contributor to socio-economic development, particularly in less developed countries. However, despite the almost universal adoption of tourism as a developmental option, the extent to which economic and social development inevitably follows the introduction and promotion of a tourism sector remains the subject of intense debate. This paper discussed some of the social and economic impacts of tourism that results for developing countries in either loosing or gaining significant revenues. The crucial needs of maintaining tourism incomes in developing nations are necessary in order to derive the richer objectives of sustainable tourism development.

  Domestic tourism in developing countries is rapidly outstripping international tourism and could soon involve ten times the numbers. This is an examination of the numbers involved, their profile, behaviour, impacts and the relevant policy responses. The volume looks at Brand: Taylor & Francis.   1. Introduction. Tourism is one of the main industries in the world. As a worldwide export category, tourism ranks third after fuels and chemicals, and is the top export sector in many developing countries (UNWTO, ).Tourism also plays an increasingly important role in the economic expansion because it is one of the main sources of foreign exchange and an essential component of export.
