Historical: The milieu in which Islam grew was mercantile, and the Prophet himself, along with most of his companions, was a merchant from Mecca.
Liturgical: Every Muslim is required to perform the Hajj, pilgrimage, at least once in his/her lifetime, if they can. Besides, the development of a science of hadith, prophetic sayings and deeds, necessitated the travel of many scholars in search of authentic traditions.
