Spiritual and Religious Tourism
This book reviews tourist motivations for making religious or spiritual journeys, and the management aspects related to them. It explores sacred journeys across both traditional religions such as Christianity and Islam, and newer forms of pilgrimage, faith systems and quasi-religious activities such as sport, music and food. Demonstrating to the reader the intrinsic elements and events that play a crucial role within the destination management process, it provides a timely re-assessment of the increasing interconnections between religion and spirituality as a motivation for travel. The book:
- Includes applications, models and illustrations of religious tourism and pilgrimage management for converting theory into good practice;
- Addresses theories of motivation and why travel to religious destinations has increased;
- Explores key learning points from a selection of international case study perspectives.
Providing researchers and students of tourism, religious studies, anthropology and related subjects with an important review of the topic, this book aims to bridge the ever-widening gap between specialists within the religious, tourism, management and education sectors.
