Tourism Academics One Cannot Miss...

Prof. Dimitrios Buhalis (e-Tourism, Bournemouth University, UK)

Dimitrios is one of the pioneers in the area of e-Tourism.  In this sub-area of tourism research, there is no way of avoiding his work.

Prof. Ross Klein (Cruise Tourism, Memorial University, Canada)

Ross can be easily considered the main academic critic of the cruise industry's practices.  Through his website CruiseJunkie.com, he has made available (and continuously updates) a number of statistics concerning the 'Dark-Side of Cruises'

Prof. Carlos Costa (Tourism Management, University of Aveiro, Portugal)

Carlos, has extensively discussed and pre-occupied himself with the nature and challenges of tourism as an academic research domain.  His pragmatic approach and realism is very refreshing.
