Tourism Geography is the study of travel and tourism as an industry and as a social and cultural activity.

Tourism geography covers a wide range of interests and these include the environmental impact of tourism, the geographies of tourism and leisure economies, answering tourism industry and management concerns and the sociology of tourism, and locations of tourism. 

Geography is by and large the study of the interaction of all physical and human phenomena and landscapes created by such interactions. It is about how, why, and where human and natural activities occur and how these activities are interconnected. 

The geography of tourism is dominated by a number of key themes related to location, place, space, human and cultural characteristics, and the movement of people. 

The geography of tourism is also concerned with the flow of tourism from generating countries to different destinations. This can be heavily influenced by economic and political factors, with the flow of tourism being traditionally from developed countries to the less-developed ones.
