This contest is fueled by the following news: Francesci Frangialli, the secretary general of the World Tourism Organization, warned that the travel and tourism sector must not unnecessarily panic over bird flu. He indicated that there is no reason to give in to panic. He stressed that people should travel without fear of bird flu, even to countries including China, Thailand, Indonesia and Turkey. He did note that the tourism industry does not underestimate the threat of bird flu. But, he noted that irrational fears of the disease were not productive. Recreational resources are a set of natural and artificially created objects, suitable for the creation of a tourism product. As a rule, recreational resources determine the formation of a tourism business in one region or other. These resources have the following basic properties: attraction (appeal), climatic conditions, accessibility, excursion importance, socially-demographic characteristics, potential reserves, method of usage, etc., these resources are used in health, tourist, sports and for informative purposes. Recreational resources can be subdivided into natural and socio-economic (social-welfare). The natural resources of tourism are classified as per: * Attachment to certain components of nature (climatic, water, forest etc.). * Functional purpose (health, informative). * Exhaustibility (exhaustibles - objects of hunting, fishing and inexhaustible: sun, sea water). * Renewability (renewable: plants, animal and non-renewable: medicinal dirt, cultural monuments). Socio-economic resources include: * Cultural-historic objects (monuments and historical places, museums, architectural ensembles). * Cultural-historical phenomena (ethnographic, religious). * Economic (financial, infrastructural, labor). Despite the socio-human role, tourism changes the environment. Damage to the environment by the tourism industry is regulated at state and international levels by ecological education, tax regulation, restriction of tourist-recreational loads on natural resources etc. Thus, recreational resources are considered as one of the factors of development in tourism and a basis for planning the tourism product.
