A Trip to the East as a Phenomenon of Tourist Escapism

Abstract. The article discusses the phenomena of tourist escapism as a craving for travel to avoid daily routines. Due to profit-seeking tourism industry, the image of East seems to be the most exotically attractive for tourists. The author analyses the historical formation of the image of East
in culture, the modern myth on East which has firmly established in mass consciousness, particularly due to possibilities of virtual space being an extensive myth-propagator.

Keywords. escapism, romanticism, mythologization, everyday culture, routine, travel, virtual culture, tourist industry.
