What is a Tourism Zone?

A tourism zone is an area consisting of tourism sites that are closely linked in terms of nature, history, culture or otherwise. A tourism zone is designed to enable longer-stay travel of more than 2 nights and 3 days through cooperation among its tourism sites, with the larger goal of enhancing the attractiveness of these sites.
