Vielen Dank für die tolle Podiumsdiskussion beim Tourismustag 2018 in München
Der #tourismustag #münchen 2018 war dem #zukunftsthemen gewidmet, wie der zunehmenden #digitalisierung von Reiseerlebnissen, der Gestaltung und touristischen Vermarktung von Lebens- und Begegnungräumen und auch der Frage, inwieweit München von dem Phänomen des #overtourism betroffen ist.

#Overtourism? Not here!

Kalyan Minaret, the most emblematic place in the city of Bukhara. It measures a whopping 48 meters high and 9 meters in diameter at the bottom. It is one of the oldest monuments of Central Asia, since it was built in the year 1127.

St Marks Summit near #Vancouver is one of the most popular hikes, and this place is usually crowded with hundreds of people taking pictures. Not early in the morning though - only 2 people in the picture are here apart from the photographer. Get up earlier and avoid the crowds - and get great morning light as a bonus ! #disperseovertourism #overtourism #beautifulbc

A panorama view of Mt. Arashiyama and Togetsukyo Bridge over Katsura River in Kyoto (in the early morning of 5-November-2017). It was fun to play around this beautiful place when I was young, but now it is sad to see the place flooded with tens of thousands of ill-mannered and rude tourists. I am quite against overtourism.

Dammit. It isn’t a Photoshop trick at all, the lakes are all different colours. Snow, lakes, volcanos, human trains, geothermal activity...so much action at the peak of the Tongariro Crossing. No wonder 100k+ people do the walk every year. There’s been talk about the increasing numbers taking on the crossing over the last few years, but is it time to do something about it? Beyond installing camouflage long drops.

Preserving the diverse flora and fauna on the Galapagos is perhaps the biggest challenge the Pacific archipelago has ever faced. Tourism, its main source of income, has stretched the islands’ ecosystem to its limits.

While the government is introducing tighter controls concerning who can enter the Galapagos, a bigger threat is invasive species that are unintentionally introduced to the islands. These can drastically endanger the livelihood of animals like giant tortoises and Darwin’s finches in a short amount of time. While higher investments in quarantine technology could help, photographer @_charlotteschmitz_ noted after her trip that people tend to strive to own nature’s most beautiful places and make money off of them. “Wherever people go, they destroy nature. There’s no way to stop that process,” she said.

Do you agree? What was your takeaway from this week?

The gondoliers weren’t singing.
Most Venetians have moved out of Venice, and only return during the day for work - making their city a workplace, not a home. #museumcity

Aka the Museum City, Venice has been loved to death. The venetian culture is dying as the homes of locals slowly turn into a gallery for the 20 million annual tourists. Times have changed.

I've been thinking a lot lately about the problem of over-tourism.  I may be wrong, but it seems to have just exploded in the past couple of years.  How do I contribute to this, and what can I do about it? Traveling in off-seasons is one idea; but I travel often with my school-age daughter, so sometimes that's unavoidable.  I have real concerns about the effect cruise ships have not only on the ocean environment, but in the sheer volume of people inundating smaller, sensitive locations at one time.
This first photo was taken at Maya Beach in Thailand, August of 2014.  You may not believe it from this photo, but I thought it already being over-visited.  That's why we opted to hire a local to take us there later in the day instead of joining on one of the crowded party boats during the busiest time of the day.

The recent 2nd photo is just 4 years later; the government has now closed the beach indefinitely to let it recover from environmental destruction. (📸: traveldailymedia)

This is just a well-known example of how over-tourism is impacting sensitive areas around the world.  Anyone have any thoughts on how a traveler can lower their footprint?!

If there are any two people who can judge how much daily life on the Galapagos Islands has changed throughout the decades, then that’s Gregorio Caiza (99) und Carmelina Villamarin (95). Carmelia was born in Latacunga, Ecuador and moved to Isabela Island to work as a housekeeper. That’s when she met Gregorio. “Nothing is like it used to be. The beaches were empty. There were no bananas, no oranges, and no avocados. I came here at 25 [in 1948]. There weren’t even a lot of people here, just a correctional facility.” Watch today’s story to learn more about this Galapagos Island couple. 👫

Can the world be saved from #overtourism? - According to a recent article by @CNN - our favourite destinations are facing these issues:
1. Lack of infrastructure
2. Environmental Damages
3. Decline in local artisans

Venice is one of the world’s most beautiful cities. It is also one of the most afflicted by overtourism. We all have a responsibility to make sure the city, its people and culture survive. Find out more at the link in our bio

Not all of the challenges that the wildlife on the Galapagos Islands face are entirely manmade. El Nino, a climate event that happens every three to seven years, causes winds to change and temperatures in the Pacific Ocean to rise. The water, which is usually cool and nutrient-full, is replaced with tropical, warm streams. What follows is heavy rain, rises in sea levels and greater wave action. In some parts of the world, El Nino triggers droughts (like in Australia), while other places can suffer from floods (like in the US). Nearly all of the native animals on the Galapagos Islands are affected by El Nino. But penguins arguably suffer the most. In 1997, El Nino correlated with a penguin mortality rate of 77 percent. Algal beds die, sardine populations shrink and rising sea levels result in marine birds struggling to feed their offspring and laying fewer eggs. Essentially, there is less food for everyone.

And with accelerating global warming, the impacts of El Nino are projected to intensify.

As we are gonna make a documentairy on sustainable island managementin in Asia,
we’re also thinking of going to the Gili Islands and film what they contribute to make the Gili’s sustainable🏝! #giliecotrust #conservation #overtourism #sustainability #documentary #giliislands #moviemaking #paradise #tropical #tropicalisland #maketheworldbetter

A lot of tropical islands are under big humane pressure. It often results in islands losing their cultural and natural values.
It's like someone who has been working for decades and has never stopped," said Thon Thamrongnawasawat, a prominent marine scientist and member of Thailand's national strategy committee on environment development. "Overworked and tired, all the beauty of the beach is gone. We need a timeout for the beach." Starting on 22 of november, a friend and I are gonna investigate the rootcauses, concequences and things WE can do to prevent this.
Endgoal: Make a documentairy and spread awareness.

For the documentairy, we’ll be traveling South East Asia, visiting islands and conservation projects!

LET’S GET MORE AWARENESS ABOUT THE ISSUE💪🏼!! #tropicalisland #sustainability #awareness #documentary #travellig #moviemaking #pollution n #overtourism #conservation

Back when the Galapagos Islands were used as a stopover for European ships carrying whalers or English pirates, crews captured giant tortoises like the ones shown here to use as food supplies.

In the 16th century there were an estimated 250,000 tortoises living on the islands. By the 1970s, that number was reduced to 3,000. Today, thanks to extensive conservation efforts, around 20,000 giant tortoises roam the Galapagos – one of many wildlife highlights that lure in vacationers. 🐢

・・・
Zonder toeristen kan de Kinderdijk niet blijven bestaan. Maar het zijn er veel te veel, zeggen de bewoners. 600 duizend bezoekers versus 60 bewoners, oftewel ‘#overtourism’. Het is het dilemma van Kinderdijk, zoals het ook een dilemma is voor andere toeristische hotspots: de inkomsten uit toerisme zijn aantrekkelijk, in dit geval zelfs hard nodig, maar de aanzwellende stroom toeristen maakt van bewoners figuranten in een pretpark. ‘Je hoort het van mensen in Amsterdam, Barcelona, Venetië: als er te veel toeristen komen, gaat het karakter verloren. Dat gebeurt hier ook.’ Foto @raymond_rutting
