Responsible tourism is about respecting, protecting and benefiting local communities, cultures and the environment.
For travellers, this can mean making holiday choices with these concerns in mind, from the destinations they visit and the way they travel, to the services they choose once they arrive.
In short Responsible Tourism is about “making better places for people to live in and better places for people to visit.”
