Chapter 13: Visiting attractions

Junjie Wen


Attractions are conceived in this chapter as an indispensable force in the matrix of the tourism system. The text reviews the definitions of attractions and considers some of the major models defining the term and the management of the sites. There is a further focus on queues and crowds and the challenges involved in dealing with language differences in international settings and the common tourist concerns about safety. An appreciation of the ways visitors use their time to create and build memorable attraction visits is highlighted for future research
