доклад tourism VS traveling

You may use the words "tourist" and "traveler" interchangeably, but to some people in the travel
community, these titles have different implications. It's not necessary to commit to one title or
another; however, you can choose to be more of a tourist on one day of your vacation, then be a
traveler on the next. Considering the way you define yourself while traveling can help you get the
most out of each trip. [kate]
It's usually easy for locals to spot a tourist among them. A tourist is usually seen in a huge group of
people, family or tour guides. A tourist may carry a camera, guidebook and map at all times. Tourists
tend to stay in their comfort zones a bit: they prefer not to mingle with the locals unless necessary, and
prefer to speak in their own language rather than try the language of the locals. They stick to major
cities instead of venturing to smaller towns or off-the-beaten-path locales; and stay in areas where
the amenities are similar to what they have at home. They do not prefer to try different foods and
refer to stick to foods that they know, this includes fast food places such as McDonalds, etc. [sasha]
The term tourism can also refer to an organization that caters or looks after the act of traveling from
one place to another. Tourism organizations that are private are responsible for booking tickets, getting
the visa process clear, organizing tours, taking care of accommodation and transport, etc.
Generally speaking, someone who considers himself a traveler will try to immerse himself in the local
culture rather than standing out. Travelers usually pack light and always go off on their own to look for
the next best thing that the city has to offer. If you're a traveler, you may try to explore the lesstraveled areas and explore locations where tourism doesn't drive the economy. You'll interact with
locals. You may carry a translation book and prefer to converse in the language of the place that they
are in. Your goals for a trip will be to learn and experience new things, rather than to take a relaxing
break from everyday life. A traveler may consider a trip a journey rather than a vacation. [kate]
