Understanding Responsible Travel 101

There are different types of travel such as cheap, last minute, business, luxury, adventure and student. But exactly what is responsible travel and why should you be concerned about it? No, it isn’t anything ominous or even anything that is a potential killjoy for your holiday.

It is a basic behavior modification where you make sure that you are cognizant of where you are travelling and how you could personally impact others socially and culturally. Understand that there are others around you, and that the world does not revolve around you.

All in all, understand that you are a guest in someone else’s country and that you should abide by their rules and customs. Don’t be that “tourist” that foreigners talk about. Have fun when travelling, but don’t be a rude and bossy tourist that no one will want to serve or talk to. Be a responsible tourist.
