    Why are Geographers interested in this topic? Are there any geographical theories related to this?


    From what I know, geographers are interested in tourism as it can affect a countries economic GDP (how rich a country is) by increasing this. tourism can effect a country economically, which they are also interested in. obviously from there they can see whether they can afford hard-engineering methods, for example, or how they would deal with an earthquake if they are affected by it. (like japan, they have a very high GDP and they are able to use hard-engineering methods for thei buildings, which they can afford and tourism has definitely contributed to this.
