Islamic tourism is tourism primarily undertaken by its followers within the Muslim world. It is not just motivated by religious feeling--it also includes participants pursuing similar leisure experiences to non-Muslims but within the parameters set by Islam, and destinations are therefore not necessarily locations where Shari'a or full Islamic law is enacted.


Demand for Islamic tourism destinations is increasing as the Muslim population expands worldwide, with the market forecast to be worth US$238 billion by 2019. This book bridges the ever-widening gap between specialists within the religious, tourism, management and education sectors through a collection of contemporary perspectives. It provides practical applications, models and illustrations of religious tourism and pilgrimage management from a variety of international perspectives and introduces theories and models in an accessible structure. The book:


- Includes a range of contemporary case studies of religious and pilgrimage activity

- Covers ancient, sacred and emerging tourist destinations

- Reviews new forms of pilgrimage, faith systems and quasi-religious activities


A timely re-assessment of the increasing linkages and interconnections between Muslim consumers, this book provides an important overview of the subject for researchers of religious tourism, pilgrimage and related subjects.
