Description:
Heritage is a growing area of both tourism and study, with World Heritage Site (WHS) designations increasing year on year. This book reviews the important interrelations between the industry, local communities and conservation work, bringing together the various opportunities and challenges for a destination. Proper heritage management and conservation activities are always vital, and world heritage status is a strong tourism marketing brand – but this tourism must be developed and managed well if it is to benefit a site. As many WHSs are located where residents live, their interaction with the local community must also be carefully considered.
