Navigating the Insight of Gender Disparity Issues in Tourism: A Conceptual Study
Keywords:Tourism, Gender Disparity
Tourism experience has been perceived traditionally in terms of products, destinations, and consumption patterns. However, modern travelling is seen as an experience, performance, surveillance, play, relationship, and a form of mobility. Research studies in tourism explored gender as a global phenomenon of biased consequence. This paper attempts to conceptualize the agreements relating to ‘tourism is a gender determined activity. Further, investigates the most crucial gender trends affecting tourist destination, like subjectivity and critically examines the premise that destination is actually a perceptual concept, interpreted by consumers and also a result of the moment, the people and motive of their travel.
