    International tourism is a common feature of many modern geography syllabuses and examination questions tend to focus on three main

    issues.

    1. The size and nature of international tourism, including reasons for its variable rate of growth in different parts of

    the world.

    2. The advantages and disadvantages of developing an international tourist industry. Here candidates need to be able

    to analyse tourism’s intertwined impacts - social, environmental and cultural as well as economic.

    3. Management strategies for addressing the negative impact of international tourism.

    This Factsheet will summarise the key points of the above issues and, through examples, will consider how some countries have attempted

    to deal with the threats and opportunities of international tourism. Finally the opportunities and challenges of ecotourism will be briefly

    discussed through three case studies
