Please tell me your opinion about studying tourism?

Recently, I am thinking about which college to enter. There is still one year to decide but time pass fast. I would like to hear your opinion about studying tourism and might some advice.

Thank you

Tourism is a good career option. Most of us have the traditional professions in mind: receptionist, guide, cook, waiter...


But a serious establishment (e.g. a 5* hotel) will hire graduates from schools of tourism and a ministry or national tourist organisation will certainly prefer someone who is trained for this sector.


There are many specialties and some of them are very demanding and well paid.


You don't need to work locally. A highly skilled person can work almost all over the world.

You can go to a close touristic place. For example Croatia, or even Greece.

Depends in the country where you live. If you live in a touristic country, it would be a good idea to follow that studies. As for a serbian, I don't think it's a good idea to do that.

I don't know anything about the employment situation in your country.  You should study something that REALLY interests you.  That way you will excel in it and enjoy your job too.
