What is sustainable tourism?

Tourism, by its very nature, appreciates the most valuable aspects of our world: breathtaking landscapes, animals, history, culture, and people. Tourism may help a community’s economy flourish by offering good-paying employment, business possibilities, and cash for conservation. However, if tourism is not adequately managed, it may have detrimental effects on local communities and habitats, causing long-term issues for inhabitants and eventually leading to a fall in tourism in the destination. The goal of sustainable tourism is to improve the advantages of tourism while reducing the negative effects it has on places.

The following are the major objectives of sustainable tourism:

  • Environment, natural resources, and animal protection
  • Providing socioeconomic advantages to populations living around tourist attractions
  • Cultural heritage preservation and authentic tourism experiences
  • Bringing local communities and visitors together for mutual gain
  • Creating tourism possibilities that are inclusive and accessible.
