Recreation
Recreation is an activity of leisure, leisure being discretionary time. The "need to do something for recreation" is an essential element of human biology and psychology. Recreational activities are often done for enjoyment, amusement, or pleasure and are considered to be "fun".
Tourism
Tourism is travel for pleasure or business; also the theory and practice of touring, the business of attracting, accommodating, and entertaining tourists, and the business of operating tours. Tourism may be international, or within the traveller's country. The World Tourism Organization defines tourism more generally, in terms which go "beyond the common perception of tourism as being limited to holiday activity only", as people "traveling to and staying in places outside their usual environment for not more than one consecutive year for leisure, business and other purposes".
Recreation
Whereas some ascetics and Brahmins remain addicted to attending such shows as dancing, singing, music, displays, recitations, hand-music, cymbals and drums, fairy-shows, acrobatic and conjuring tricks, combats of elephants, buffaloes, bulls, goats, rams, cocks and quail, fighting with staves, boxing, wrestling, sham-fights, parades, manoeuvres and military reviews, the ascetic Gotama refrains from attending such displays.
Gautama Buddha, Digha Nikaya, M. Walshe, trans. (1987), Sutta 1 (Brahmajala Sutta), verse 1.13
Tourism
Essentially the camera makes everyone a tourist in other people's reality, and eventually in one's own.
Susan Sontag in: Bruce Robbins Feeling Global: Internationalism in Distress, NYU Press, 1 January 1999, p. 2
Recreation
More and more, work enlists all good conscience on its side; the desire for joy already calls itself a "need to recuperate" and is beginning to be ashamed of itself. "One owes it to one’s health"—that is what people say when they are caught on an excursion into the country. ... Formerly it was the other way around: it was work that was afflicted with the bad conscience. A person of good family used to conceal the fact that he was compelled to work. Slaves used to work, oppressed by the feeling that they were doing something contemptible: "doing" itself was contemptible. "Nobility and honour are attached solely to otium and bellum," that was the ancient prejudice.
Friedrich Nietzsche, The Gay Science, W. Kaufmann, trans. (New York: 1974), § 329
