We all like to take a break, relax on a beach or explore somewhere new. And we assume tourism economically benefits the host too. But this is often not the case - in the global south over 50 percent of a tourist's spending will leave the country in which it is spent. And what about the environmental impact of jetting off to exotic destinations?

In this No-Nonsense Guide, Pamela Nowicka explores the third biggest industry in the world (after oil and narcotics). Taking the reader on a trip through the early days of travel, up to the first package tours and today's mass tourism, she argues that we in the West could help more by travelling less and being more discerning when we do travel. This compelling and fascinating book will show you the hidden impacts of tourism.

Diagrams, charts and graphs used throughout to illustrate key information.

The No-Nonsense Guide to Tourism tells you that there is more to your holiday than visiting the 'attractions', relishing local cuisines or enjoying a siesta in a hammock by a beach.
