24. The UN/WTO standards distinguish five forms of tourism, including domestic tourism.

25. The term domestic, used in the tourism context, differs from its use in the National Accounts. 'Domestic' in the tourism context refers to residents travelling within their own country. In the National Accounts context 'domestic' includes the activities and expenditures of both residents and non-residents travelling within the reference country (i.e. both domestic tourism and inbound tourism).

26. The Framework is structured to focus on internal tourism statistics. The same definitions and classifications however, can be applied to statistics on national tourism and international tourism.
