Linking urban and rural tourism: strategies in sustainability.

Book cover for Linking urban and rural tourism: strategies in sustainability.


This book applies a more inclusive approach to regional integration by providing insight into strategies that support both the needs of urban and rural areas whilst enhancing the tourist experience, supporting the positive impacts of tourism and mitigating the negative. The book addresses three critical thematic areas: rural-urban linkages (chapters 1-4), fringe tourism (chapters 5-7), and strategies for sustainable tourism (chapters 8-15).
