Tourism and travel are activities that involve people travelling to and staying in places outside of their usual environment for leisure, business or other purposes. Tourism is the movement of people from one place to another for recreation and leisure, while travel is the act of travelling from one place to another. Tourism and travel can involve both domestic and international trips, with the purpose of experiencing a new culture, exploring new places or simply having a holiday. Generally, tourists and travellers stay in hotels, resorts or other accommodation while they are away from home, and they may also participate in a range of activities, such as sightseeing, shopping, eating out and visiting attractions. Tourism and travel can have a positive impact on local economies, as visitors often spend money on food, accommodation and other activities.
