In our daily busy lifestyle, we hardly get time for relaxation. So we all need some leisure time for ourselves to start working afresh. Often under the pressure of work stress, we have to face a lot of problems in our personal as well as in our professional life. Travelling can give us some mental peace and the mental strength that helps us to improve our personality and behavior and also helps us to concentrate on our professional life. Tourism is travel for pleasure. Tourism can be domestic or international. Today tourism is a major source of income for many countries and also affects the economy of both the source and host countries.
