Some define cultural tourism as a tourist activity where the visitor’s essential motivation is to learn, discover, experience, and consume the tangible and intangible cultural attractions/products in a tourism destination. These attractions/products relate to a set of distinctive material, intellectual, spiritual, and emotional features of a society that encompasses art and architecture, historical and cultural heritage, culinary heritage, literature, music, and creative industries. Others see cultural tourism as travelers looking for an “authentic experience,” of a community with special attributes that set it apart. Another definition considers cultural tourism as a type of tourism that allows the tourist to participate in local cultural activities, like festivals and rituals. As a result, the tourist can enjoy a genuine cultural exchange with the locals.
