Over recent years the proliferation of terrorist atrocities has had a negative impact on the tourism industry and these images have been viewed globally facilitated by the media revolution. The aim of this paper is to examine the reality of terrorism and whether or not such media representation correctly portrays the reality on the ground or merely distorts the image of the geographical region. The paper attempts to place in context the potential risk for the general holidaying public and instead identifies other potentially apocalyptic scenarios resulting from environmental mismanagement/global warming which may impact negatively on the tourism industry.
