How will the Corona virus change tourism forever?
The global tourism will shift in new directions when the corona pandemic is over. In these unprecedented situations where the world was forced into closure, countries shut their borders, we were all forced to distance ourselves from other people. This affected the way we operate and connect with each other.
Looking at the world’s travel and tourism industry, these sectors were forced into a hiatus, at least until the restrictions on border entry limits are lifted. But once lifted, it doesn’t mean that it would revert to what exactly it was before the pandemic.
More and more people would be staying at home even when the worst of this pandemic is over. Fearing for not only for their physical health but also the constraints on the economic situation of their country. While personal budget may tighten, the desire to go out after this pandemic will only ramp up, especially the adrenaline junkies and thrill seekers around the world once they are released from the lockdown.
As a result, many will look for budget friendly escapes, wanderlust-busting excursions and avoiding the epic-international travel epochs. People would likely be touring their home countries, supporting local economies and knowing more about their city.
Not only will people be looking to travel cheap, they would also be avoiding mass tourism. Instead of touring cities, people would be focusing more on nature travel, less mass, more mind, and more time for themselves. As a collective, we should need to better care for our planet, this undoubtedly will influence post-coronavirus tourism.
