Vote for your Country in the Battle of the Islands! Tourism-Why The Global Recession Hasn't Killed It

By John Woods


Tourism is not going away, on the contrary it's more alive than ever. Find out the best ways to travel. It's not just for the rich, anyone can participate.

As local and global financial problems continue to mount people are finding it increasingly necessary to escape from their problems and routines and take a much needed break. There's nothing more relaxing than traveling to a distant culture that you've never seen before and settling into a new world that you've never experienced . Tourists are as varied as the cultures, climates, and seasons that they immerse themselves in. What could be more satisfying than a warm Caribbean island in the middle of a harsh wintertime? Conversely if your normal climate is a hot one nothing is more refreshing than traveling to an exotic location like Alaska and either hiking or cruising through the fjords.

There are so many different types of tourism that it is difficult to list them all here. However there is one that has become increasingly popular over the last decade: Ecological and Sustainable tourism are becoming a very important way to visit countries that are fragile while respecting local customs and economies, indeed building them up rather than taking advantage of them. The trend is to limit the impact on the local economies, natural resources, ecologies, and political structure of some very popular destinations.

Another modern-day trend is how the Internet has enabled people to begin and end all of the essential details and planning of their trips. It's literally letting your fingers do the walking. Resources on the Internet include but are not limited to: vacation sites, forums, agencies,e-books and reports. The Internet is responsible for an explosion of knowledge that makes it much easier for people to find what they're looking for. Coupled with today's ability to travel at will and the availability of knowledge online makes finding the perfect vacation spot easier than it ever has been.

This is one of several articles to come that will reveal and examine some of the most popular vacationing spots in the world. We will also take a look at the varying ways that tourism has changed and what to expect in the years to come.
