Abstract/Summary One important reason for study of the Muslim world is that the trajectory of tourism development may not follow a pattern identical to that found in other countries. Many of the case studies of destination development found in the literature indicate a lack of control by those within the destination, even after negative effects have become apparent, leading to the development path described by Butler's lifecycle model (Butler 1980, 2005a, 2005b). In a number of countries, and particularly in Saudi Arabia, planning for tourism has taken a different and proactive strategy that encourages tourism by Muslims from neighboring countries. The same approach has also been observed in some regions of Western China, whereby people from Korea and Japan are preferred as tourists due to their similar cultural background. This strategy may be interpreted as a means of managing the development of tourism in a manner that minimizes its sociocultural impacts, an outcome consistent with principles of sustainability. The encouragement of tourists likely to meet the requirements of Shari'a law is termed Muslim tourism.
