In 1950, there were 25 million international tourist arrivals. In 2020, that number will be 1.6 billion. More people are traveling now than at any other point in history. Travel is in an unfortunate state. Over-tourism has magnified the impact on the environment, wildlife, and vulnerable populations around the world. Unintentionally, tourists are destroying the very things they have come to see. Tourism has reached a tipping point. Yet, travel is also an opportunity. It can be leveraged as a force for good -- to promote conservation, alleviate poverty and positively transform host communities, while fostering cultural connection and understanding between people from all walks of life.

Even though the summer tourist season has just ended, I just found this and thought it was a very poignant and educational film about various aspects of the tourism industry that many people are not aware of (but should be).

p.s. This documentary was in post-production when the coronavirus pandemic hit.

was just going to say the c hoax curbed that business sector right down. prison planet in the making with the zombies embracing it full on, protecting their murderers.

Just want to say thank you for sharing this important documentary. Thought it was well done and raises good points.

The Philippines's island "Boracay" is an interesting counterpoint: the government shut it down long before Covid for some of the same reasons outlined in this documentary. The land markedly improved during the closure -- though, of course, many local people were swept out of cash flows...but the environment was reclaimed to some degree.

Social media is a huge problem in this regard -- but that is only a symptom, not the root. Our ego is the real problem. Fragile sense of self, in need of validation.

Long live the death of illusion...

I love that picture!

Yes, I thought this documentary was a 9 or 10 out of 10 in production, how they weaved the various stories together, and the information itself was very important. And the shamanic theme they added was also a real nice touch.
