Sorts of tourism

Tourism is not just a holiday. Not at all! Tourism involves everyone that spends at least, or more than 24 hours outside his/her residence for leisure, business, religious practice or/and to solve health issues…

If for some travelling means lying on the beach doing nothing or playing with the kids, or other 3 intensive days in Paris going after museums or cabarets, Paris would certainly be a paradise. La Rue de Saint Dinis it’s a must-see.

Eco Tourism attractions in Mexico, Costa Rica, Malaysia, Thailand and China to mention just a few also move billions of people. There are tons of volunteer programs which allows you to discover destinations. But, don’t pay for it. Volunteers should be rewarded for their contribution. Do not pay any fees.

Unesco World heritage offers Cultural Tourism in Italy, Turkey, Portugal, China, Mexico, Japan and they are a great sort of inspiration. The list is fortunately long and we will discuss the topic.

Spain, a TOP touristic destination in 2016 is well known for religious tourism. The pilgrims take their way in “Camino de Santiago” all year round. Barcelona hosts tourists for art & culture as well as food markets and coffee shop terraces. The city is always full of business travellers and it can be hard to get accommodation unless you’re willing to pay.

Religious Tourism in Spain, France (Lourde) and Vaticano City.

Even though tourism is usually associated with holiday the truth is that it is much more than that. Business Tourism makes people travel to international events, etc.

We had a long way to make Medical Tourism (I met many tourists in Thailand travelling with this purpose) ranks for one of the TOP SORTS OF TOURISM! Thailand is fantastic and I know from my own experience.

Airlines are competitive now…

Yes, we are all after entertainment, great adventures, culture, religious trails, events and business conferences, trade events. The thing is that for most of us travelling is a must and for much others an obligation.

Despite all the facts we take advantage of what destinations have to offer and usually, we do not need to be too curious to move a few miles and discover the most amazing attractions just next door. Inspiring locations and loads of reasons to travel await for you in the following blogs. Please, follow it. It means the 🌎 to me! Thank you, all of you, reading me!

Take the best of life, travel !!
