often seen in terms of provoking a sense of awe
and of being struck by seeing them. There is
often a kind of humanism at work here in which
people look out onto nature as appreciation.
What I have tried to argue in this chapter is that
inner/outer dualism is a rich untapped area of
work in tourism studies in terms of examining
how tourism trades upon the notion of a psy-

mental realm to the world of sightseeing. This
in turn drives much of the tourist economy as
people fl ock to places to see certain sites as
constituting the very nature of the destinations
