[Extract] Tourism and travel for leisure are by no means new pursuits. With technological innovations and increased discretionary income over the past sixty years, such activities have rapidly generated a global industry. Renowned for stimulating social and economic growth tourism has also become a motivational force for development in many diverse locations. As a destination or specific host-community becomes more reliant on the opportunities and revenues generated from the tourism sector, it exponentially increases its vulnerability to a potential tourism crisis. Given that the successful tourism enterprise is based on both physical and intangible qualities, the associated hazards are innumerable. Recent events such as the violent terrorist attacks in Bali highlight the relevance of crisis management strategies in facilitating the process of both community and destination recovery.
