Travelling- It leaves you speechless and then turns you into a storyteller.

Travel has been said to broaden the mind and increase one’s creative capabilities. Exploring the world, admiring  the natural canvas and learning about the diverse cultures that the people of the world offer, once in a while, is the best way to refresh and enlighten your mind.

The word ‘tourism’ can describe travel for foreign as well as domestic pleasure, and it has been happening for as long as we’ve existed.

Tourism Day is your opportunity to explore your own world a little, find a location you’ve always wanted to visit and finally get around, making time to do it. So this Tourism Day, let out your inner traveller and get out there and experience the places you’ve always wanted to see.

History of Tourism Day

Tourism has been a part of the human lifestyle as long as there have been distant places to go and explore.

It was originally the practice of the wealthy, with travel being difficult and expensive, but it provided opportunities to learn new languages, experience different cuisines, and generally see what there was to see.

Tourism’s written mention traces back to the Shulgi period in Ancient China, when Kings took great pains to protect the roads and pave way for travellers. In the Middle Ages travel became even more important for religious reasons. Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, and Christianity all had pilgrimage traditions that required travelling great distances in the interest of health and spiritual improvement.

How to celebrate Tourism Day

Tourism Day is best celebrated by excavating your book of dreams and finding that place in the world you most wish to go. If you’re unable to pursue those dream places now, leave them for the future and take a trip somewhere easy to get yourself into the momentum of travelling.

If you live at a tourist destination, you can get to know how tourism works in your area and see what you can do to help protect your local heritage, cultural sites, and help share the wonders and history of the place with the tourists visiting it.

“Go out and explore the world.”
