In Responsible Travel

We’re all here because we love to travel. However, there’s a problem, especially when we all want to travel to the same place at the same time, and the infrastructure just can’t cope with those demands.

The problems associated with ‘overtourism’ are ever-growing, and more destinations are looking at ways of both still attracting visitors, whilst maintaining the local’s way of life. None more so than in Venice, which started with banning large cruise ships entering the Grand Canal (they now go to Fusina and Trieste), to next summer charging to enter as a day tripper and restrictions on group sizes.

There are other examples. The Canary Islands, and specifically Tenerife has had problems with affordable housing for native islanders following a large increase in passenger numbers heading through the airport, and people buying up holiday homes, pricing locals out of the market.

Then there’s Thailand, which closed ‘The Beach’ before the pandemic because too many people were travelling there.

These are all challenges we face as we have bigger populations, who are more mobile and affluent than ever with more accessible air service. The popular destinations will only get more difficult to see in their ‘natural light’.
