Domestic Tourism
DOMESTIC TOURISM is tourism involving residents of one country traveling only within that country. A DOMESTIC HOLIDAY is a holiday (vacation ) spent in the same country; this class may overlap with STAYCATION (in British English
British English
), a vacation spent in the same region. This is different from inbound tourism. With the resurgence of the package holiday , research carried out by British travel agent Thomas Cook

HISTORYIn Medieval
Medieval
days a destination for such days out would be religious (to a nearby shrine ) or commercial, for example to a seasonal fair .

Extreme tourism
overlaps with extreme sport . The two share the main attraction, "adrenaline rush" caused by an element of risk , and differing mostly in the degree of engagement and professionalism . While traditional tourism requires significant investments in hotels, roads, etc., extreme tourism requires much less to jump-start a business. In addition to traditional travel-based tourism destinations, various exotic attractions are suggested, such as flyovers in MiGs at Mach 2.5, ice diving in the White Sea

Dark Tourism
DARK TOURISM (also BLACK TOURISM or GRIEF TOURISM) has been defined as tourism involving travel to places historically associated with death and tragedy . More recently, it was suggested that the concept should also include reasons tourists visit that site, since the site's attributes alone may not make a visitor a "dark tourist". THANATOURISM, derived from the ancient Greek word thanatos for the personification of death, refers more specifically to peaceful death; it is used in fewer contexts than the terms dark tourism and grief tourism. The main attraction to dark locations is their historical value rather than their associations with death and suffering

Shark Tourism
SHARK TOURISM is a form of eco-tourism rooted in having communities appreciate that local shark species are more valuable alive than dead. Instead of opting for a one time economic benefit of harvesting sharks for their body parts, communities are made to assist interested tourists who may want to see live sharks. Many divers and people are involved in interest groups such as the late iDive Sharks Network that aim to celebrate and promote safe and responsible shark diving activities. Another diver and marine biologist who focuses on shark conservation and promotes this form of ecotourism is Ocean Ramsey, who operates a company called One Ocean Diving out of Hawaii. Her program, just like many others, focuses on educating the public about these animals and allowing guests to get a first hand experience with them. This personal connection helps the general public realize their significance and in return want to help them
