If India isn't on your bucket list, it should be. This fascinating destination has everything — history, culture, cuisine, the list goes on and on. It also has incredible natural beauty and wildlife, already threatened by pollution and overpopulation, making it increasingly important tourists approach visits with sensitivity.
For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
Increasingly, travelers are becoming more concerned with the state of the countries they visit. It’s hard to visit a country and look around and see the people struggling. Many want to do their part and help the locals so they can live a better life. Africa, in particular, is a continent with lots of people in need. The country suffers from a plethora of problems and it’s difficult for the governments to help the citizens. These volunteer projects involve direct help with a community in need.
Ecotourism is not a new concept. For years, countries have worked to make their most visited areas safe for tourists and the animals that live there. Saving the planet is a trend here to stay and people are increasingly concerned about the future of the world. Travelers choose to spend money on places that align with their beliefs and values. For many, this includes maintaining and preserving wildlife for generations to come. This surge in ecotourism forces countries to examine their policies and create programs to promote it.
