Comfortable climatic conditions can become the tourist resources. The climate of a region is determined by the interaction of solar radiation, atmospheric circulation and ground properties over a period of time. The climate determines the attraction of a tourism resource and affects the decisions of tourists in selecting their destinations and the season to make the visit. The most common objectives of climate tourism include escaping from the summer heat and winter cold, or simply doing sunbath.
