Why is it important?

It makes a clear-cut distintion between two types of tourism development strategies. Those that mainly aim to fulfill tourists shifting expectations, needs and desires and hence look towards the outside; and those that looking toward the inside, attend to maintain the cultural production of meanings.


I hope that this article may help people to understand that approaching tourism development from a socio-anthropological perspective might be revealing.
