Sustainable tourism is now the top priority for global tourism

indexMajor cities like New York and Amsterdam, and UNESCO World Heritage sites like Machu Picchu, are often cited as examples regarding over tourism. Tourism experts now want the focus to shift to lesser known destinations. They are concerned about places like Honduras, Nicaragua and Cuba, where demand is growing beyond the pace of sustainable development.


More established tourism destinations, such as Egypt and Turkey, find it easier to recover from previous problems. Business in both was down significantly in 2016 but rebounded in 2017. Bookings were down due to political unrest and terrorism fears, but iconic destinations tend to bounce back quickly from unrest. Sustainable tourism is now on the top list of world tourism agenda.
