Tourism comprises of the activities of persons traveling to and staying in places outside their usual environment for not more than one consecutive year. Tourism is one of the major foreign exchange earners in Malaysia.

One of them is within the class of ARMA models and the other two are in the class of ARFIMA models. & & &
