Abstract

This special issue of Tourism Geographies is a collection of articles that were independently submitted to the journal, but which bring a cultural geography perspective to tourism studies. The articles are organized into the topics of: 'revealing places' about both alternative attractions and mass images in tourist marketing; 'heritage identities' on the role of heritage tourism in creating a sense of place; 'local agency' about how locals assert their responses to tourism and tourists; and 'tourist culture' on how tourists and the tourism industry also have their own cultural geographies.
