Heritage Tourism Benefits
The Cultural and Psychological Benefits of Heritage Tourism
Heritage tourism is not only a good economic stimulus, but it also offers deeper benefits to those who experience it. It provides a sense of place, and a deeper connection to that place.
Our personal heritage is what makes us unique and different. It is not only a collection of historical events, places and artifacts, but it is how we, as individuals define ourselves. It provides us with a sense of place, a connectedness to that place, to the land, the traditions, customs and family.
Cultural heritage facilitates harmony and understanding among people. Sharing your story with others creates a unique bond that can strip away any stereotypes.
