Tourism, one

Tourism is the supplying of services to tourists. A tourist is a person who travels away from home, either within the same country or abroad, and stays away for at least 24 hours or one night.

The reasons for such travel include leisure (recreation, holidays, health, education, religion, and sport), business, and family matters. A holidaymaker, a conference delegate, and a traveling businessperson are all tourists.
