The impact of High Speed Rail (HSR) on tourism is an important issue that has not been sufficiently studied until now. An analysis of the recent literature leads to the conclusion that these impacts depend on the characteristics of each tourist destination and the different pattern followed by domestic and foreign visitors. While studies focused on Asia show HSR to have a significant effect on tourism indicators, European case studies reveal a lower impact, mainly caused by foreign visitors. Nevertheless, a deeper analysis of foreign tourism and its relation with HSR is required.
