Despite a global recession, statistics show that just 11% of Brits will go without a holiday next year, whether it be an overseas trip or a 'staycation' here in Britain. However, the dynamics of tourism are changing. More and more travellers are opting for 'voluntourism' or 'eco-tourism' trips, responding to the widely-publicised demand for responsible travel. Yet the ethics of this 'greener travel' are also being brought into question, with critics arguing that voluntourism does not necessarily benefit local communities or promote a sense of equality. This book looks at these issues and more, including tourism trends, responsible tourism and gap year travel.
