Abstract: 

Tourism education is one of the fastest growing area of the travel and tourism. There are different foreign universities which offer foreign travel to their students for enhancing their sociocultural, economic and environmental experiences of life. Simply reading books on computers, science, commerce, arts, medicine, management, architecture etc. can-not give the practical experiences of life. For having a well-defined clear vision of life, we should encourage educational tours in our schools and colleges. In this paper, an attempt has been made to study about the importance of tourism education as well is its significance in the field of education. Sources of information are collected from different books, journals, articles, periodicals and from own personal experiences.
