CULTURAL TOURISM RESOURCES
Cultural travel and tourism is another fast growing segment of the tourism industry. An increasing number of travelers are seeking out authentic experiences where they can learn about the heritage, history, art, dance, literature, customs, food, buildings, and traditions. Travelers look to interact with the local people and experience new things.
There is a real value in preserving these customs, traditions, and historic places that can add to the economic development of an area. Many great stories have died with the people who have lived them. Documenting, preserving, and presenting history, culture, and traditions can increase revenue for local people and give them a larger sense of pride.
Some governments are beginning to recognize and encourage this.
Purpose driven entrepreneurs can be helpful in this by following a natural curiosity and patient approach that helps build on what people have naturally while being conscience of the affects of tourism.
