Abstract The authors analyze tourism in regards to the logic of the global tourist process, the logic of a “touristic machine” and logic of symbolic consumption which takes place during a tourist trip. A touristic machine is an industry and is subject to the law of market within which a consumer (tourist) is influenced by various external factors ranging from the technical support of a tour to services of a psychological nature. Tourism manufacturing brings together the phenomenon of tourism and the phenomenon of mass society. The global tourism market is interested in a flood of tourists and new manipulative techniques with the help of which a tourist can be forced and persuaded to wish exactly what a tourism manager wishes. However, the authors argue that the symbolic that exists in today’s culture is inherent to tourism too. The symbolic that relates to the individual specifically manifests itself during a trip. It is in situations of travel that a person experiences a full range of sensations. In the modern era tourism events that seem to be external and schematically alienated become a subject’s inward events, and the authors see prospects and resources of a touristic process in the interaction between these two directions/ logics.
