Tourists are increasingly demanding memorable experiences, opportunities for meaningful connections with local people, one of the great benefits of travel and tourism is the opportunities it creates for people from very different religions, cultures and backgrounds to meet and for the traveller or tourist to learn more of the history and way of life of the communities they visit. As Krippendorf, the founder of Responsible Tourism pointed out, "every individual tourist builds up or destroys human values while travelling". What can those of us in the industry do to foster understanding and celebrate diversity?
