Today, over half of the world’s population lives in cities and the United Nations has forecast this to increase to two thirds by 2050. Yet, despite the key role that global tourism cities play in urban tourism, relatively little research exists on the challenges they are increasingly facing. This entry explores the concept of the tourism city. It also draws from the latest research to provide insights into critical developments affecting tourism cities today, challenges ahead and future research in this rapidly growing field.
