This chapter takes a trip through cultural geographical work on tourism. Before we depart, I wish to clarify that, like coles et al. (2006), I do not see disciplines as natural "home" for particular questions or paradigms. The geographical does, however, mark a particular neighborhood of inquiry - a place that fosters certain kinds of research being done (Mee, 2006). It is in this light that I consider tourism within cultural geography - as simply something about which cultural geographers embark on generating new knowledge. In this chapter I am interested in how geographies of tourism have been done, to what effect and how these have been situated and mediated.
