Increasingly tourists are seeking learning and educational holidays. This interest has led to the provision of tourism product with some form of learning or education as an integral component, including cultural heritage tourism and ecotourism. The growth of offshore education and lifelong learning has stimulated cross-border movement for language learning, school excursions and university student travel. Reflecting this growth in educational tourism types, the author outlines the main forms of educational tourism, their demand and supply characteristics, their impacts and the management issues associated with them, taking a holistic systems-based perspective. The book argues that without adequate research and appropriate management of educational forms of tourism, the potential regional development impacts and personal learning benefits will not be maximised. The book highlights the need for collaboration and networking between both the tourism and education industries to adequately manage the issues surrounding the growth in educational tourism.

"Der Besitzer des Hotel de l'Opera, das in wenigen Jahren Hotel Sacher heißen wird, stirbt. Ein elfjähriges Mädchen verschwindet in den Gassen Wiens. Zwei Paare, die unterschiedlicher nicht sein könnten, treffen im Foyer des Hotels aufeinander. Es ist die Nacht des 28. November 1892. In ihrem fesselnden Romandebüt lässt Rodica Doehnert, die mit dem TV-Dreiteiler Das Adlon. Eine Familiensaga ein Millionenpublikum begeisterte, erneut die Hallen eines legendären Hotels zum Schauplatz eines bewegenden Figurenreigens werden. Meisterhaft hebt sie den Vorhang zu einer Zeit, die längst vergangen scheint, erzählt vom Ringen ihrer Protagonisten nach seelischer Reifung und folgt ihnen durch den Niedergang der europäischen Monarchien in all die Widersprüche des 20. Jahrhunderts. Eine farbenprächtige Geschichte über die Sehnsucht nach Selbstbestimmung und die schöpferische Lust auf Erneuerung. Wien 1892: Anna Sacher will das Hotel nach dem plötzlichen Tod ihres Mannes weiterführen. Resolut und gegen alle Widerstände erklimmt die junge Witwe den Platz der Prinzipalin: "I' bin der Herr im Haus!" Während Anna Sacher, Zigarre rauchend, umgeben von einer Schar Bullterrier und gemeinsam mit ihrem treuen Personal das Hotel zu einer Legende macht, begegnen sich zwei Paare: Der Prinz und die Prinzessin von Traunstein und das Berliner Verlegerehepaar Martha und Maximilian Aderhold. Ein Liebesdrama entspinnt sich zwischen den Suiten und Séparées des Hotels Sacher in Wien. Die Geschichte führt die Paare nach Gut Traunstein in Niederösterreich und ins Berlin der Jahrhundertwende. Gemeinsam mit ihnen erleben wir den Untergang einer alten Welt und den Übergang in die Moderne.

China is forecast to be the primary tourist destination and tourist-generating country by 2020. However, much of the writing on tourism in China has come from people within the English academic world who are not involved in the issues related to Chinese tourism development. This book provides a voice to Chinese mainland academic researchers and examines the nature of tourism research and tourism development in China. Contributors, many of whom are based in China and are immersed in the daily issues of teaching, researching and planning tourism development within China, discuss issues related to resource use, destination image and community participation with case studies that combine conceptual frameworks and practical issues. This authoritative text on tourism in China will be of interest to scholars and students of tourism throughout the world.
