There are three types of tourism which is domestic, inbound and outbound tourism.
When a tourist travels around the same country, as they live in. For example when you live in London and decide to go for a tour in the palace of Westminster, then you are a domestic tourism. A domestic tourism traveller does not have to book a place to stay because they can go home on the day they went to visit.
Travelling around the UK from another country. The tourist comes from another different country. For example, Joseph is going to visit the UK for his holiday but he lives in Australia.
When you leave your own country and visit another country for the tour. For example, Mary is going to America but she lives in London.
There’re different varieties of component industries such as the followings:-
Accommodation is a place where you can stay for your holiday/tour. This would be suitable for inbound tourism and outbound. Accommodation can be serviced or non-serviced.
Serviced accommodation means your room/place you’re going to stay in will be fully organised by cooking facilities, fully furnished, meals provided freshly, and modern high technical devices will be provided such as television, DVD’s and also the internet connection will be available. For example the Hilton hotel (http://www3.hilton.com/en/index.html), this hotel is resorted in 78 countries across six continents. This hotel is a highly branded, stylish hotel with excellent services and also they have over 92 years of experience which shows that they would be professional. Even the guest room is uniquely designed both smart and completely accommodating. Therefore inbound and outbound tourism would use serviced accommodation.
However, non-serviced accommodation means only the accommodation is provided
