Each year, many of us travel for business or leisure purposes, and tourism is a substantial service industry; this travel and tourism site highlights some of the popular leisure travel destinations around the world.

Each year, over one billion people worldwide participate in travel for leisure or business purposes, and tourism accounts for over 30% of the world’s exports of services. Transportation, accommodation, and entertainment services provide over 7.5 million opportunities for employment within the service sector in the United States alone. Pilots, travel agents, hotel staff, and tour operators are just a few of the many careers available in the large and diverse travel industry.

In 2013, more than one billion people participated in international travel, with the top ten travel destination countries for international tourists being France, the United States, China, Spain, Italy, Turkey, the United Kingdom, Germany, Malaysia, and Mexico. While some of these trips were for business or visiting family and friends, over half of these travels were purely recreational. Any why not? Recreational travel allows us many opportunities we would not otherwise have in our day-to-day lives. It opens up educational experiences, connects us to other cultures, provides time to relax and reduce stress, and even can give us the insights and perspective we need to break unhealthy habits in our lives.
