About the Dataset
This dataset presents the significant rise in tourism in recent decades, driven by increased aviation accessibility for international travel. Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of international visits had more than doubled since 2000. The blog emphasizes the dual significance of tourism for both travelers and the host countries. Traveling enhances understanding and appreciation of diverse cultures, while many countries heavily rely on tourism as a major source of income. However, tourism also brings about negative effects such as contributing to carbon emissions and potentially harming local environments and cultures. The blog offers data and visualizations to explore the evolution and present status of global tourism.
