The meaning of the word 'resort' depends on whether British or American English is being used. As Tim has explained, in American English, a resort is a single commercial establishment: a hotel or hotel complex offering accommodation and leisure activities. In British English, the meaning is often different. The word 'resort' can refer to a whole town, particularly one that's by the seaside. Many of the towns along the south coast of England are 'holiday resorts': they're towns where people lead normal lives but which are also popular destinations for 'day-trippers' and holidaymakers. Brighton, for example, has a population of nearly 300,000, but it's also a holiday resort. The town itself can be referred to as a holiday resort, and within the resort are various tourist attractions, such as the famous Royal Pavilion. I can see that you're working your way through IELTS practice tests, so these definitions should help you.

Hi Farhad! Holiday Resort is a place where you may stay for a couple of days during your vacation, either locally or abroad. It may also be designed with leisure/ recreation activities. Tourist attractions are places people visit which has an amazing/glorious/wonderful view or a landmark/establishment to appraciate and enjoy it’s beauty of a certain city like the Northern Lights in Iceland, Leaning Tower of Pisa(Italy), Petra,Jordan: A Wonder of the World, Fontana Di Trevi-Roma, etc. Hope you have a wonderful day!

Tourist attractions include landmarks, famous places and neighborhoods. The Great Wall and Times Square in New York City are considered tourist attractions.

A resort is a hotel that has other activities to do while you’re there. Adding the word holiday just means it is used or intended to be used by people on holiday (British English). A tourist attraction is just something tourists like to see such as Big Ben or the Louvre. There may be hotels near by but they aren’t part of the tourist attraction.
