Metropolitan Commuter Belt Tourism, Hardback Book

Metropolitan Commuter Belt Tourism Hardback

Edited by Michal Jacenty Sznajder

Part of the New Directions in Tourism Analysis series


With the current rise of metropolitan regions as a present location and driver of the development of rural tourism, agritourism, food tourism and nature tourism, there is a need to analyse the major economic, social, political and managerial aspects of these types of tourism which occur within the rural-urban fringe.

This book establishes a current inventory and appropriate future selection of commuter belt tourism products for metropolitan areas.

It also explains how public and private resources can be combined to achieve synergistic effects in tourism promotion and provides a structural analysis for the proper management of tourist organisations in metropolitan areas.

Additionally, there is insight into how the development of metropolitan areas affects rural tourism and agritourism within broader social, economic and environmental relations.

The issue of the growth of metropolitan areas, which is a complex and multifaceted challenge, is elaborated on with diverse examples in Poland and further afield. This is valuable reading for students, researchers and academics of tourism, as well as rural and urban studies, business management, farm management, and leisure studies.
