This course explores global destinations for touristic purposes by examining traveller motivations and expectations, tourism patterns, country and city iconic attractions, reasons why destinations are popular, world events that affect the tourism location, authentic perspectives of the local people (both Indigenous and non-Indigenous) and local religions which provide unique experiences.
