According to professional tourism management, domestic tourism is as important as international tourism. Tourism should develop in both frontiers; International tourism and Domestic tourism. Mostly international tourism is spoken due to foreign income. Since international tourism is an important sector for economy, the investments and regulations are designed up to the principles of international tourism. It doesn’t mean that domestic tourism isn’t necessary for a national economy. In opposition to the benefits of international tourism, domestic tourism has many benefits for national economy and cultural development.
Firstly it is necessary for cultural development. To realize the background of a landscape is the first condition to create a healthy public. Culture is a character that can be formed by various civilizations that resided on a landscape.
Secondly it raises up the life standard of the public. It means that economical and cultural standards will get better. Also the public will learn what the history is. The history is a good teacher for us. We can see the past and we can design the future.
Thirdly it creates an alternative income in the name of tourism. Economy needs this income. If it is as good as the international tourism, it is a good sign for national economy. Circulation of money provides the sustainability of tourism movement.
Tourism is a sort of human culture exchange. Sustainability of tourism depends on the quality of tourism.
