Responsible Tourism

Responsible is a familiar term that we use every day. But, when it comes to being a responsible tourist all of us are confused about the responsibilities we should be taking.

So, let’s find out what is responsible tourism?

The concept of responsible tourism was developed in the ’80s. Responsible tourism as stated by Capetown in 2002 is “making better places for people to live in and better places for people to visit”.

This definition simply indicates making a better place for locals residing in that specific place and having a welcoming and pleasing place for the people who visit.

Responsible tourism does not only protecting the environment but should uplift the people and empower them by supporting their local values and economy. In addition to it, tourism directly affects people and communities, ecology, and their cultural beliefs.

If the tourists are not responsible enough the tourism might be affected in a negative manner which might not make you a responsible tourist then.

Moreover, tourism’s primary source is traveling so, while we travel we have to make a positive impact on the local’s economy, promote their culture, embrace their beliefs, and ecology.

Traveling is fun right? Then why do we have to feel responsible while we are traveling?

As stated above you may have a clear sense of preserving responsible tourism. But still, you may be curious why you need to be a responsible one.
