In Europe, Dubrovnik, Porto, Barcelona, and the Cliffs of Moher are few attractive tourism locations of this continent. Side by side, these places are also turning out to be immensely overcrowded. Besides, this has implications for the industry and policymakers as well.
Barcelona residents this year have shown objection against the volumes of tourists pouring in the city. A friend of mine who’ve recently been to Dubrovnik explained it as claustrophobic. The UNESCO has suggested the authorities over there to decrease the volume of daily tourists in order to protect the integrity of the city. On the Cliffs of Moher, there are times when queue of buses appears to interfere with the beauty of the place.
With the arrival of low-cost airlines, markets which were previously too costly to access were opened. Airbnb created a new trend of reasonably priced accommodation that combined low-fare flights by delivering greater numbers of tourists.
In addition, there is another major factor to keep in mind though — China. Global tourism is immensely being impacted by China.
The country is progressing steadfast in terms of the standard of living for its citizens. Considering the huge size of the population, the quick growth of the middle-class section in China is generating a new trend of traveling outside China. The airlines of the country have been rapidly responding to this multi-year progress in terms of economic prosperity, and this will have impact for years to come.
