Abstract: This chapter seeks to investigate how law constructs tourism. What we mean by this is that law has to be seen as not some simple regulatory mechanism within which travel and tourism takes place, but that it can be read as text which sends powerful messages about how tourism is to be understood. The messages are powerful because of the privileged position which law occupies in the social order. But this does not mean that law cannot be analysed as another expression of cultural understandings about social phenomenon and critiqued on the same basis.
