Tourism is Like ...

"Tourism is like fire. You can cook your dinner on it; or it can burn your house down." (Anon.)

"Tourism is like treading water hoping that no one pulls the plug." (Jean-Claude Baumgarten, President, World Travel & Tourism Council)

"Tourism is like a tiger with two tails. On the one hand it offers massive employment and boosts the economy. On the other hand, if not controlled, it can steal away from the inhabitants of a country most of what makes their country worth living in and worth visiting." (Sir Lawrence Van der Post)

"Tourism is like a huge monstrous beast that's arisen from somewhere and is charging ahead very powerfully, without anyone having accurately described what it looks like or where it's going." (Ralf Buckley)

"Tourism is like waiting in one place and hoping to see a herd of buffalo stampede by. Maybe it'll happen, maybe it won't ...  the tourist economy is basically undependable." (Brian Mahoney)

"
Tourism is like being a little bit pregnant. It’s fun getting there – but it poses increasing problems as the child grows and threatens to take over the parent." (Richard Butler)

"Tourism is like a lit stick of dynamite ... it's just ready to explode." (George Ryan)

"Tourism is like liberty. Only when you lose it, do you see how important it was." (Jean-Claude Baumgarten, President, World Travel & Tourism Council)

"Tourism is like a bridge. It connects our countries and it can connect people to each other." (Karen Chen)

"Tourism is like a secularised or unconscious form of pilgrimage, and that the attitude of the pilgrim, the "intention to learn", should be consciously reinscribed into tourism." (Rupert Sheldrake)

"Tourism is like a dream factory, which oversimplifies reality. The potential visitors are attracted by inspiring dreams that are no more than stereotypes of reality. These are the raw materials which economic players use for the development and marketing of the final tourism product.  Products are designs and brands are created in order to stimulate these dreams and create demand." (Peter Keller)

"Tourism is like a community holding a mirror up to itself and then deciding what it wants to be." (Hal Rothman)

"Tourism is like weather, always hovering in the background but powerful enough to shape the way life proceeds." (Sherry Simpson)

"Tourism is like seasoning on food. Some can make an improvement, a little more can make it perfect. A lot ruins it and makes a good thing disgusting." (Anon.)

"Tourism is like an iceberg. It is easy to describe the part that stands out from the water  but very hard to be precise about exactly what lies beneath." (Simonsen, Jørgensen and Robbins)

"Tourism is like a gun." (Alex Garland)
