Tourism can be classified into different types depending upon the days for which the tour package is booked, distance travelled and the purpose of travelling. Tourism can be widely classifieds as international tourism, long-distance tourism, domestic tourism and short distance tourism.
As part of international tourism, a traveler goes through different countries and meets a different kind of people speaking different languages. Most of the international tours are long distance travels while if the country itself is small and there is short distance travel between other countries it might come under short distance travel.
Domestic tourism involves traveling within the country. For domestic tour packages, there is no need for a passport or visa. The scope of domestic tourism varies depending upon the size of the country. It also varies depending upon the purpose of the travelling destination.
Both international and domestic tourism have inside classifications based on whether the tours are for holidays or business. In this holiday tourism is the most popular tour both on an international scale and national scale. Recreation and leisure are the purposes of holiday tours.
