defining rural tourism

Post by Antonis »

Loosely defined it can encompass any activity that takes place in a non-urban, populated area. With farm incomes dwindling in many "developed", but also "developing" countries, and people migrating to cities or abroad, rural tourism is often seen by planners as a magic wand to stop rural decay.
