Some examples Areas of both leisure and geographical interest include mountain ranges like Snowdonia and Cairngorm Mountains, Lake District, Loch Lomond and natural parks like Brecon Beacons and the Yorkshire Dales. .

Incoming and Domestic Tourists often have different needs when looking for a holiday. Domestic tourists" vacations are usually the length of their weekend, whilst incoming tourists may stay for one or two weeks sometimes longer. Therefore depending on how far tourists have travelled and how long they intend to stay at a destination tends to decide their general needs.
Incoming tourists" needs differ greatly from those of the Domestic tourist. This is generally due to both the cost and distance they have travelled to get to their destination of choice. They are looking for a certain quality that the domestic tourist is not and demand a standard of quality which matches the cost. They are likely to spend a longer period of time at a destination and so demand more from that area.
