  1. Choose your destination carefully.
    When deciding upon your next destination make sure to not go for the most crowded and popular ones. This does not only decrease the stress by avoiding jammed places during your holiday, but it will also protect those crowded destinations and attractions. There are many other stories worth hearing and places worth seeing beyond what is popular on social media platforms or the internet in general.
  2. Eat, sleep and shop like a local.
    This helps us actively learn more from traveling and it actually makes us go through moments that bring us closer to the people and places we visit. Buying at a local shop, sleeping in a remote but authentic accommodation and eating in the places where locals eat will guarantee you a great time and a true experience of the culture and local traditions.
  3. Avoid touristy souvenirs
    Souvenirs are not only often overpriced but are most likely something that we do not actually need and that we will eventually not use. If you want a precious memory from your trip, try to combine the beautiful with the practical. You can go for local spices, some regional snacks or things of lasting value.
  4. Leave a place better than you found it
    A tourist can make a valuable difference even by small actions. Supporting the local artisan’s shops, buying local products, or socializing with locals, can bring not only joy but also greatly improve the destination’s economy. The ethical choices you make during your visit can bring a big impact on the touristic ecosystem in the long run.
  5. Be open and adaptable to new technologies, BTour Chain
    The 21st century is the time of the fast-emerging technologies that come to make our life easier. The current technology’s contribution to our life is incredible. By being used wisely, it makes us more responsible as well as it makes out lifestyle more sustainable. BTour Chain, a global tourism blockchain project is a good example of this new wise use of technology that is committed to making sustainable traveling everyone’s reality.
