Abstract
This paper examines tourism impacts in Mysore district which is situated near Bangalore, the state capital of Karnataka in India. In Mysore, tourism is one of the fastest growing industries as well as the major source of foreign exchange earnings and employment. As a service industry, tourism has numerous tangible and intangible elements. Major tangible elements include transportation, accommodation, and other components of the hospitality industry. Major intangible elements relate to the purpose or motivation for becoming a tourist, such as rest, relaxation, the opportunity to meet new people and experience other cultures, or simply to do something different and have an adventure. Tourism in Mysore has both positive and negative impacts in their local community. The study clearly shows that the local community perceptions are supportive to tourism activities and the impacts of tourism are minimal. This paper focuses to promote Mysore a global destination, with the local communities’ satisfaction of tourism impacts.
