The transformation of space by tourism and recreation is examined and the implications for tourism policy and planning are drawn out. A general model of transformation as a guide to intervention is presented. The first part of the book focuses on the procedures and includes case-studies from the Spanish coast, French mountains and northern Thailand. The second part considers the management of the tourism product, with examples from the Amsterdam Waterfront and holiday villages in northern Europe. Thethird part is concerned with consumers as managers of the transformation process, drawing on information from nature-based tourism, sports tourism and festival events. The final part provides a more holistic model of the planning of recreation and tourism.
