What is grief tourism?

14th June 2006

Grief tourism occurs every day in places like Pearl Harbor (battlefield tourism) and Auschwitz (Holocaust tourism). Then there are people who visit places wrecked by natural disasters, people who attend funerals of celebrities, and people who visit prisons. In short there are many types of grief tourism and here we’ve tried to organize tourist attractions based on the type of grief tourism associated with each place.
