This is now universally recognized that tourism must be developed and managed in a controlled, integrated and suitable manner, based on sound planning. Tourism is coming up as a major source of earning in the developing countries. Tourist development is not longer seen solely in terms of destinations, with much more consideration being given to origins or markets and associated linkages. Tourism as a system endorses the need for all developers, planners and managers to understand the dynamic relationship among all parts of tourism as a system.
