Abstract

Tourism industry has become one of the important sectors in economic and social development which contributes revenue due to the incomes generated by the tourists’ expenses on goods and services, taxes levied on business besides creating an opportunity for employment and economic advancement. However, the performance of tourism industry in the world showed unstable growth between 2001 until 2011. This is due to several challenges faces such as SARS, H1N1 virus, natural tragedies such as storm, earthquakes and floods, terrorist incidents, political pressures and civil conflicts besides the financial crisis. Despite almost the whole world being faced with challenges, international travel and tourism demand has shown phenomenal growth and the industry proved itself to be resilient to the various crisis happening around the world.
