About this book

This book looks at various aspects of tourism education in Asian countries and the impacts of sustainable development in tourism education to the Asian student markets. It provides an insightful and authoritative account of the various issues that are shaping the higher educational world of tourism education in Asia and for its Asian students overseas, and it highlights the creative, inventive and innovative ways that educators are responding to these issues.
The book is composed of contributions from specialists in the field and is international in scope. It is divided into four parts: an introduction setting the scene of tourism education and Asia; case studies of tourism education in various Asian countries; case studies of tourism education of Asian students abroad and their trans-national student experiences; and broader perspectives on intra-Asian and transnational tourism education. The book provides a systematic guide to the current state of knowledge on tourism education and Asia and its future direction, and is essential reading for students, researchers, educational practitioners, and academics in Tourism Studies.
