Tourism and geography are two aspects that are interlinked (Hall and Page, 2014). The four concepts of geography space, place, environment and scale determine how a tourist will experience leisure and enjoyment. Murphy (2004) concludes that who a person is determined by the part they come from. In relation to tourism, the aspects of space, place, environment and scale in a destination determine the leisure and tourism aspects that are found there. This essay explains Murphy (2004) and the four key concepts in modern geography; space, place, environment and scale and how they interlink. The essay discuses how these theoretical concepts apply to a tourist visiting Tahiti.
