Tourism is a forward-looking industry that can drive the economic aspect, and so is the business. It could provide opportunities for employment. Among other businesses, the tourism sector contributes 73.1 percent. Resident expectations and mindsets towards tourism have caught the attention of many researchers, the main reason being that they are likely to influence tourist experience and satisfaction, the effectiveness of tourism programs and policies, as well as the sustainability of tourist destinations as a whole. These changes also represent wider concerns in the tourism discipline about sustainability issues and the importance of addressing the needs of host communities in the growth of tourism. However, little scholarly effort has been devoted to developing countries, despite scholars arguing that people's attitudes towards and support for tourism vary between developed and developing countries. In this vein, the first chapter addressed sets out to conceptualize and characterize rural tourism, considering the principles of quality management and brand quality, as well as tourism experience. In a post-modern society, rural areas and the countryside have grown in both importance and appeal. For this reason, academics and politicians have become interested in understanding the rural tourism phenomenon since it was recognized as a development tool of often economically and socially depressed rural areas. Consequently, the book presents research that explained how tourism activity influenced the society who lived in the village around them. Additionally, the book presents the comprehensive coverage on residents' involvement in urban tourism planning; long-term impacts of non-sustainable tourism and urban development in small tropical islands coastal habitats in a changing climate; the impact of tourism resource development based on low-carbon mode; and a model for assessing the level of tourism impacts and sustainability of coastal cities. Furthermore, the book presents a study that investigated tourism impacts as perceived by residents; it analyzed residents' perceived tourism impacts in relation to their evaluation of the stage of destination development. In tourism, objects with cultural significance are usually among key tourism attractions, including the ones listed under the World Heritage List. Finally, the book points out sustainability in the management of world cultural heritage.
