Tourism phenomenon has its roots in the humanly needs of seeing other places and discovering the unknown areas and the geography refers to the researches on spatial dispersions, climatic conditions and physical conditions of an area. Human-beings seek and try to see things they do not have in their geography, and for this reason they try to visit different geographies. Hence, geographical features of a destination may become main attraction for tourists. Tourism and Geography are so closely related that, the success of tourism activities is dependent on the geographical conditions. So, Tourism needs a physical geography for its ventures.
