There have also been issues including natural and physical disasters that have majorly affected the travel industry. For example the horrific events of 911, the majority of people feared of travelling to America in particular but there were also a percentage of people who were scared to travel by plane in fear of another terrorist attack. This affected America's tourist industry for a short period of time but they quickly recovered after people became less feared of travelling to America for holidays. Natural disasters have also affected the travel industry, for example the tsunami that covered parts of Asia. People feared visiting places around there in case of another natural disaster. People then became aware that natural disasters could happen anywhere at anytime, so then tourism then started to pick up again as people were then booking various holidays throughout the world and back to places around Asia.
