There are several traditional ways to travel, but a new trend of tourism is emerging. A new breed of globetrotters are travelers who want to not only discover a destination, they want to experience it like the locals, getting to know the culture, traditions and its people.
After several years working for the tourism industry, I noticed that this type of tourism lacks international promotion. While there are companies that offer eco-conscious travelers the opportunity to enjoy an intimate local experience, cultural and technological barriers stand in the way of global dissemination of this service.
