Why sustainable tourism is important when you choose your holiday destination.

travel sustainably

Sustainable tourism is, in a nutshell, the concept of visiting a place as a tourist and trying to only make a positive impact on that location’s environment, society and economy. So I am asking you to think about this when you book your next holiday.

A sustainable holiday destination commits to:

  • Protecting our environment, natural resources and wildlife.
  • Conserving cultural heritage
  • Making a social impact on local communities

How best to support of sustainable tourism:

  • Try to avoid tools like who undercut the local suppliers and take your money offshore. An alternative is to use to find your stay then just lookup the website an book directly with your holiday resort. Its better leave more of your money in your choice of holiday destination. Booking through a tour operator on the other hand does have value as they have huge experience to share.
  • Its clear you want to visit places where the environment is in great condition. So choose the places that contribute something back to the environment.
  • You will simply feel better knowing your money is helping support families and improve destinations.
