Pacific Tourism Review was designed to meet the needs of the fastest growing tourism region. The tremendous changes in outbound and inbound travel patterns occurring in the wider Pacific area and their associated effects on the economy and environment demanded a publication that specifically focused on this area. Pacific Tourism Review aspired advances in excellence in tourism research, promoted high-level tourism education, and nourished cultural awareness in all sectors of the tourism industry by integrating industry and academic perspectives. Its international and interdisciplinary nature ensured that the needs of those interested in Pacific tourism were served by documenting industry practices, discussing tourism policy and planning issues, providing a forum for primary research and critical examinations of previous research, and by chronicling changes in tourism patterns throughout the Pacific region.
