How to be a Responsible Tourist

After last week’s devastating wildfires in Maui, which became the United States’ deadliest fire in over a century, a ton of discourse around tourism has come up.

Not gonna lie, we don’t really know how to make jokes out of this story, and we don’t want to. Instead, we’ll give some helpful insights into what it means to be a responsible tourist so that you can enjoy traveling the world and respect other cultures and the planet in the process.

Okay, just kidding here’s a half-joke/half-helpful-tip: just don’t be like anyone from the White Lotus. Once you’ve got that covered, you’re basically there.

Here’s how you can be a responsible tourist when you travel:

  • Visit hot destinations during their off-season to support the economy year-round
  • Contribute to the local economy by shopping at small businesses instead of chains
  • Avoid chain hotels by staying in locally run accommodations
  • When possible, prioritize train travel over plane travel
  • Research your chosen activities to make sure that they don’t exploit local communities or wildlife

Check out this article for more tips and info on responsible tourism. You don’t have to give up seeing the world to be a good citizen of it. When you tour responsibly, you get the best of both worlds.
