This volume provides a comprehensive account of the valuable tangible and intangible benefits of the development of heritage tourism. Tourism development is widely acknowledged as a crucial tool to foster the development of rural and urban areas. To this end, this book presents nine case studies from international authors that reflect how tourism development is helpful—economically, socially, and otherwise—for community capacity building. The case studies from the countries of Spain, Portugal, Australia, Dubai, Bangladesh, Nigeria, and India demonstrate the uses of various management strategies and methods for rural and urban areas, and cover some of the major topics related to community-based tourism, community capacity building, and community participation in developing heritage tourism. Chapters consider the conservation of heritage resources and tourism promotion of destinations that provide opportunities to local communities to strengthen their economies and social standards.

Key features:

  • water conservation in urban landscape as natural, cultural, and historic tourism resources
  • spiritual and religious heritage tourism
  • cultural tourism and the support of public and private funds
  • economic development and its effect on cultural and natural resources
  • public-private-partnerships to ensure sustainable development
  • talent management challenges
  • tribal tourism and tribal festivals, which are the mirror of their culture and could be major tourist attractions

The methodologies and proposed management strategies discussed by the book's researchers and professors will be valuable for policymakers, administrators, tourism promoters, researchers, and academicians who are involved with the tourism industry.
