Why tourism is important?

Domestic tourism is used for the tourists coming within the country. In domestic tourism, the members of the society with the common culture, history, and archaeological wealth as a nation ensure social, cultural and economic gain by participating in it.

International tourism is a mutual social, cultural and economic intervention made by the people from different cultures in tourism regions of different countries by crossing the national borders with various purposes.

Every time we travel, for whatever reason, we are all a part of a global movement; a movement that has the power to drive inclusive development, create jobs and build the sustainable societies we want for our future; a movement that builds mutual understanding and can help us safeguard our shared natural and cultural heritage.

It brings people together from all over the globe

Tourism has the power to bring us all together, from all walks of life, without discrimination and regardless of race, color, or age. It allows us to explore the world in compelling ways so that we can better understand each other, destinations, its history and culture.

Promote responsible travel

From ocean conservation to wildlife protection and local community support, sustainable tourism is important in maintaining the Earth’s natural habitat and attractions. Responsible travel is about respecting the destinations we visit, so that we can leave this Earth better than we found it.

Reduce poverty

According to the United Nations’ World Tourism Organization, tourism makes up 5% of the world’s Gross Domestic Product. We must work together to address global inequality and support local communities.

Empower communities

We can empower communities is through our continued support of local artisan groups. For example, by purchasing a Peruvian piece of art or textile, you’re actually connecting and contributing to a person’s income which in turn helps their families and children.

Protect natural habitats and wildlife

Tourism has been the voice of animal protection and helped in defending vulnerable species. We have collectively supported to stop the poaching of rhino’s, whaling, sharks, and elephant mistreatment and sea turtle conservation. Many destinations around the world are defined by their native animals so it’s fair to protect them from further endangerment.
