Overtourism refers to the excessive number of tourists crushing into a popular tourist destination or scenic spot, which results the destruction to local environment and historical relics and affect residents’ life quality badly. Meanwhile, it brings terrible tour experience to travelers. This is one of the most important problems in global tourism development. At present, there are several ways to solve the problem. First, increase the tickets price of scenic spots. For instance, Venice in Italy will charge 3 euro entrance fee since May, 2019. Second, limit the daily numbers of the visitors, like the Forbidden City in Beijing, China.
Besides improving the management of scenic areas, tourists can also avoid the peak seasons to travel to those hot attractions. What is your opinion about overtourism? Do you think your last tour destination is overcrowded?
