The interaction between solar radiation, atmospheric circulation and the ground surface conditions determine the weather characteristics of a region; therefore, weather conditions suitable for tourist’s activities have become a tourism resource. The temperature, humidity, sunshine, wind conditions and cloudiness of a tourist destination affect the comfort of tourists and the associated tourism environment. These parameters tend to form various climate tourism resources, such as summer resorts, winter retreats and sunshine spots. A proper evaluation of climate tourism resources is a crucial aspect of tourism planning and development.
