Book Chapter

Educating tourists at the pre-visit stage


It is safe to say that global capitalism has created the conditions for a more liberal market as well as free interchange among nations. This particularly pivoted in the rise and expansion of tourism, but at the same time, it made things harder for the destinations in view of a climate of excessive competition. This chapter brings some reflection on how educating tourists to visit destinations is mainly marked by an ongoing state of political violence and instability. The thesis held by the authors stands for tourism education avoids long-dormant ethnocentric discourses based on the fear of traveling to so-called risky destinations. This begs the question to what extent behind the alarmism of tourism safety and security lies deep western ethnocentrism.
