A new definition of Travel/Tourism : Adventure tourism.Do you think the meaning of travel and tourism has changed over the years?
There was a time when travelling to a place meant site seeing, relaxing, romancing with the nature, spending quality time with family and friends and understanding different culture; but is it still the same?
Now a days people are more interested in adventure tourism than a mere comfy site seeing. Paragliding, skydiving, bungee jumping, boating, rafting, jungle adventure, camping, bonfire, and dancing is the new era meaning of holidaying and travel. Heavy flow of adrenalin in their blood makes them come alive. High risks in adventurous activities give them pleasure. Not even the discomfort involved while travelling with a toddler or travel safety concerns for study abroad students stops this new generation from being adventurous.
May be it depends on personal choice and what type of life we live throughout the year or may be it is just a question of generation gap.
Dear friends, What is it that really stimulates and attracts you: A calm and pleasurable travel with family or an adventurous tourist spot with friends? Do share your opinion here.
