VEN­TURE INTO THE UN­KNOWN

Toyota Connect/Lexus Life - - DESIGN DISTRICT -

Cities like Barcelona, Venice and Am­s­ter­dam are all suf­fer­ing from “over­tourism”, a global prob­lem where too many trav­ellers visit a par­tic­u­lar des­ti­na­tion and neg­a­tively im­pact the qual­ity of life there.

Now more in­trepid trav­ellers are es­chew­ing long queues at the Lou­vre or Sis­tine Chapel and are opt­ing for more re­mote travel des­ti­na­tions. Coun­tries like Bhutan, Paraguay and Oman have all seen an in­crease in tourist num­bers in the past year. Tour or­gan­iser In­trepid Travel re­cently added tours to Dji­bouti and In­dia’s re­mote north-east­ern re­gions, while Hy­att Ho­tels and the Hilton Group are open­ing new prop­er­ties in Kaza­khstan.

Which re­mote des­ti­na­tion will you visit next?
