In general, tourism has taken place among the essential economic activities of countries, especially in developing ones, it is on the top of the activity list mentioned above. Even though the first illustration that's shaped on the mind includes the trio of sea-sand-sun when it comes to tourism, this economic activity has substantially progressed and got diversified owing to several facts such as increments of the accumulation of knowledge in the light of technological improvements, developments in the welfare state, the great excess of spare time and so on, especially in the past few years. The idea which indicates that a location without a shore could not be developed in terms of tourism, is given up and thanks to the changes in expectation and perceptions of tourism, lots of destinations just like deserts, polar regions, ancient places and folkloric elements have become valuable topics for tourism.
