What are tourists?

Answer

Tourists are people who are traveling or visiting places for pleasure. The term "tourist" is most often used to refer to a person visiting a place on a vacation trip as opposed to a person visiting a place for business.

"Tourist" is perceived as a stereotypical term. Local people tend to refer to anyone who is sightseeing, appears confused or is ignorant of local customs as a tourist. Local people may call themselves tourists if they are doing typical tourist activities, such as visiting museums, landmarks or going on tours. "Tourist" comes from the word tour, meaning to travel from place to place.
