Globe-trotting is a short and transient trip outside the person’s usual spaces for rest, touring, business or other reasons.
Attention to globe-trotting, especially in 1980’s, motivated most of countries to make efforts to attract tourists and globe-trotters. The total income of tourism industry in recent years is about $300 billion, and although Iran is among the ten countries with most historical, ancient and cultural attractions, it earns only about $200,000 annually through tourism industry.
In this paper, considering Quran’s verses, richness of Islamic culture and ancient historical identity of Iran, the cultural effects of tourism and the relationship between tourism culture and genuine Islamic and Iranian culture have been studied. It has been shown how Iran, as the nuclei of Islamic Revolution and enjoying ancient historical past and unique, thought-provoking works and relics, can earn great revenues and also act as a center of propagation of Islamic ideas and culture through tourism, because in contact between different cultures, it is the more powerful one which influences the other and remains safe from possible dangers of such contacts, and only receives positive elements of other culture.
