520 3  Today, tourism has become one of the largest and fastest 
       growing industries accounting for nearly 700 million 
       people travelling all over the world and spending more 
       than 7.4 trillion US dollars. Besides promoting people-to-
       people contacts, ethnic and cultural understanding, mutual
       appreciation and co-operation and thereby promoting peace,
       tourism provides unlimited opportunities for employment 
       generation, social and economic upliftment of the people 
       and contributing to the economies of the nations. Cultural
       heritage tourism has a number of objectives that must be 
       met within the context of sustainable development such as 
       the conservation of cultural resources, accurate 
       interpretation of resources, authentic visitors experience,
       and the stimulation of the earned revenues of cultural 
       resources. Tourism is an important issue at world heritage
       sites. Most managers at natural sites regard it as a key 
       issue. Important features of world heritage tourism are 
       local protection, conservation and restoration. Such a 
       tourism also requires special training management skills. 
       Different visitor management strategies, interpretation 
       and site promotional activities have to be organised. 
       Culture and heritage have also become majorforces in 
       economic and urban revitalisation. As cultural tourism 
       becomes an increasingly important factor for tourist 
       destinations involved in developing their cultural capital
       in order to attract more international visitors, there is 
       value in assessing how cultural and heritage tourists can 
       be better understood and serviced through marketing, 
       planning and programming with local and regional 
       communities.This bookalso provides readers with global 
       charters developed for promoting cultural tourism and for 
       preserving heritage sites. Focus lies on ICOSM and WHC. 
       World Heritage Sites, identified and conserved around the 
       world, have been listed and the initiatives to preserve 
       cultural sites and conserve heritage sites
