With the extensive coverage of media in every field, it has become relatively easier to find out about our favorite global stars. So whether it’s a novel or film destination, there is no denying the charm in revisiting the actual places which you otherwise have read only in books or seen in movies.
Heritage, culture, sports, health, nature, festival etc. are some of the major elements that form the indigenous interest in tourism. And, the “travelers who visit a destination to pursue their special interests in a particular region or destination” form a tribe of special interest tourists.
Tourism which emerges from popular cultural phenomena such as films, books, music is called pop-culture tourism and the enthusiasts as pop-culture tourists.
From Game of Thrones to Harry Potter, pop culture’s glamorizing representations are the new-age destination marketing concept. Like it or hate it, but no one can definitely ignore this whole new way of experiencing real places.
