Globally, the situation is no different with indications that tourism – one of the world’s leading economic sectors – is assuredly on the path to recovery.
As some of the traditional tourism hotspots reopen, travellers are eager to seek new vistas, explore new horizons and be seduced by different experiences. They are seeking new places and craving different experiences.
