Therefore, tourism means, first of all, the set of activities through which a person spends his free time, travelling to another town or country to visit people and places, monuments and museums, to enrich their general knowledge, to entertain and do sports, for rest or treatment, etc., and secondly the industry was created to satisfy all the services requested by tourists at the destination, at a high quality level and under the conditions of protection and conservation of tourist resources, in particular, and the environment in general.
