Ethical travel is an ideal way for travellers, students, adults and seniors to be able to give a little back to communities and environments in need, in a way not possible when just travelling as a tourist. You are also able to learn about a new country and culture, whilst immersing yourself in the local community where your ethical travel is located.
Ethical tourism simply means tourism which benefits people and the environment in different destinations.
It can offer a better income to families living in the area, by sourcing products and services locally.
Travelling is no longer an activity reserved for the richest in society. With cheap flights and accommodation, most people managed to explore the farthest corners of the world and take a vacation at least once a year. And everyone knows that tourism is a great thing not only for the traveller but also for the countries they travel. For us travelling is a chance to broaden our minds, explore different sights, meet new nationalities and learn about the culture and traditions of the world around us. For holiday destinations, tourism is an important, if not the principal, source of economic income and frequent travellers can even provide motivation to build precious infrastructure such as roads, and protect fragile environments and forests. However, with an intense influx of tourists, these countries, especially developing countries are beginning to feel that the economic benefits no longer outweigh the environmental and cultural destruction.
