Tourism in the modern society is different from a sightseeing tour of the ancient literati or Xu-style travel and scientific exploration. It is an evolving way of life in human society. On this point, some foreign scholars have a similar narrative. Gold (such as the United Kingdom Ish shows the Estoril) pointed out that the nature of tourism is gradually changing.

Before World War II, only affluent societies, have leisure and well-educated people to travel abroad to meet to appreciate the foreign landscape, works of art. This concept has now completely changed. Overseas tourists come from various backgrounds, very different from travel ideas, to appeal to their preferences and desires more multifarious, taking this as far as possible in a limited holiday.
(2) modern tourism is leisure to recover to enjoy the "democratization". Such as winter tourism, sports usurped by the few who are rich; horse riding, rowing, shooting, non-popular movement. Hobby and leisure "commercialization" has such activities can be enjoyed by ordinary people. Large numbers of people to go abroad to participate in more cause for excitement and rich foreign sentiment activities such as mountain climbing, skating, swimming underwater and carriage travel.

Such as the British holiday camps, both traditional tourist destination with all the facilities, constantly opening up and development of new landscape areas, the large group of visitors viewing the construction of specially designed low-consumption and reception facilities, and often in place to provide entertainment and other services . Social tourism can be a large number of tourists into the remote and relatively undeveloped areas. Therefore, the amateur regulations on tourism in general is correct, but in practice difficult to distinguish. Especially in China, meetings, business travel, a lot of people. According to statistics, people travel to Beijing, 41 percent of conference tourists.
