Let's find your personal idea of paradise!

Mass Tourism— aka Over-Tourism Issues

Responsible Travel and Over-tourism Issues

Responsible travel is a moral obligation for all of us that is much needed in a world that is often over populated and not educated on how a simple thing, like taking a vacation -- comes with both responsibilities and rules.


Take it from someone who lives in a popular tourist destination, “We love you, but we are not happy with the unintended problems having you visit us constantly creates on a daily basis.”  We suffer long lines, traffic, crowded venues, crowded restaurants, rude behavior, and cultural differences that present a just a few of the problems other people’s vacation fun brings to our lives.


That great vacation rental house you snagged at a bargain price that is next door to our house, the one with the swimming pool?  Well, your vacation loud pool parties night after night get a little old.  So does waking up to strangers walking about and leaving trash all over.  


So why would being a travel agent become a responsibility to also teach and preach - responsible travel?  Well, we believe everyone who can, should travel and travel extensively.  It enriches your life in ways that you cant even imagine.  It not just the lives of locals that are impacted, but its also about the quality of your vacation experience is also hampered when over-crowded over-tourism exists without check.  


Dream Travel Today would be remiss to not actively encourage everyone to “think twice” about their impact on the places they love to travel to.  Many places none of us would want to miss seeing and experiencing, are currently suffering under the weight of mass tourism, aka over tourism.

  

Take Amsterdam for example.  First this country is a small one, with a population of 17 million.  The population of the city of Amsterdam is 860,124 and it is only 85 square miles in size.  Yet, Amsterdam alone will be invaded with 19 million tourists this year alone, which is more than the population of the entire country.   In another four years, this number of tourists to Amsterdam is expected to morph into 29 million visitors.  That comes with more than a few problems.


So, you can’t really blame the locals who don’t appreciate the noisy, binge-drinking, partying, urinating in the streets, vomiting tourists.  And they are fighting back, with new laws and rules for anyone coming to Amsterdam.  No more new hotels.  No more new souvenir shops.  Private rentals and Airbnb’s, are under increasingly tight regulations, and possibility in danger of being banned.  


It’s not that you aren’t welcomed as a tourist.  It’s all about the quality of life of the people who live there everyday and balance, as a tourist destination.

Fines for bad behavior, public drunkenness, and urinating in public have been dramatically increased and you either pay-on-the-spot or go to jail.   Over tourism isn’t unique to Amsterdam.  These and other travel related over tourism issues are sadly now worldwide issues. 


Vacation destinations, such as just a few listed featured destinations on Dream Travel Today’s site are drowning in tourists: 


  • Amsterdam, Holland
  • Angkor Wat, Vietnam
  • Bali, Indonesia 
  • Barcelona, Spain 
  • Boracay, Philippines
