Sexual exploitation of children occurs all over the world. Sexual exploitation of children in tourism is primarily a domestic or regional problem. Child sex tourism can occur in both developed and poor countries, as shown on the world map below.

(SECTT = Sexual Exploitation of Children in Travel and Tourism | CSEC = Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children | SEC = Sexual Exploitation of Children).

There are countries where child sex tourism occurs more visibly than in other countries, such as the coloured countries on the world map below. This, of course, is not an exhaustive list. As stated earlier, sexual exploitation of children occurs in hotels or other tourist venues in all countries.
