Domestic tourism is tourism involving residents of one country traveling only within that country.[1] A domestic holiday is a vacation spent in the same country; in British English this may also be called a staycation, a portmanteau of "stay" and "vacation".

For large countries with limited skill in foreign languages, for example Russia, Brazil, Canada, Australia, United States, China, India, domestic tourism plays a very large role in the total tourism sector.
