Let’s talk about Slow Tourism.

What is it?

It is a culture that is rapidly growing. It is a new form of travel to provide travelers with an alternative to the fast-paced, high-cost travel that is common today. It’s about taking your time and immersing yourself in the local culture during your travels. The slow tourism movement is a response to a world where destinations are increasingly being marketed as a means to an end — a place for people to gain something.

The idea has been around for a while. It simply refers to travel that takes place at a slower pace, seeking out experiences rather than sightseeing. Slow tourism is about immersing yourself in local culture and discovering how you fit into your environment. This means that slow tourism isn’t just limited to walking or biking tours, but encompasses any way of seeing a destination that doesn’t involve rushing from one tourist attraction to another.

So why Slow Tourism?

Traveling is a getaway from the hustling and bustling of daily life. You go out to free your mind from all the stress. There’s is no point if you go out on a vacation or a small weekend and still not have a great experience. The to and fro trips, checking into hotels, already tired from the rush. You end up being too exhausted to even visit the main touristy spots.

So here’s why Slow Tourism.

When you actually explore a spot, you’re not just visiting the place, you’re experiencing everything. The journey, the hotel, the different people you meet, the different cultures you experience. This gives you a newer perspective on your travel experience. Experience it through the eyes of a local. Take your time to learn about the area, make connections with the locals themselves, ask them about the spots to explore. After all, just going to a destination and rushing back home isn’t what traveling is all about, isn’t it? Instead of a planned organized holiday, why not plan an elongated getaway? Slow it down!

How To Adapt Slow Tourism?

Slow travel is about taking your time to explore the spot. Destinations have a ton to bring to the table. The people, scenery, ancient cultures and traditions, and the food. However, with time at your hand, would you be able to observe them all. What a certain location can give you, no one but time can tell.

Choose to live in rentals and hostels. This is additionally affordable and allows you to sink into the local culture. Start by exploring the regions closest to you. Whenever you are done, visit the areas of interest around you. Look into more places where you can go from local people. And while we’re at it, you could also go organic and eco-friendly. Support and buy produce from the local farms and shops. You can also volunteer to work around your temporary home for the development of the area.
