    1. Fear is a big factor for people not to travel. There can be fear of crime and social unrest in countries, that put a lot of potential travellers off visiting. War and terrorism can be another reason to cause fear in people not to travel.

    2. The superstructure is businesses and facilities that give the tourist an experience. The infrastructure is attractions and services that will be on offer for tourists.

    3. Covid-19 is the biggest factor to be affecting the tourism industry. Tourism across the world has completely halted which has created a devastating impact on businesses that rely on tourism.

    4. France is the worlds top tourist destination.

    5. My favourite destination in the world, is London as there is so much to see and do there. I found the museums and history of the city also really fascinating.

    Travelling is an expensive luxury that not everyone can afford. The cost of paying for travel and accommodation can be a reason for people not to travel.

    The superstructure for tourism is made up of buildings that serve a purpose for tourists. The infrastructure is the services that are provided such as a car rental service.

    Lack of tourists due to the world pandemic, will be a big factor affecting the industry. Other 21st Century factors have been terrorism which can result in a drop in tourism for certain cities and countries.

    France is the most visited country with the Eiffel Tower being the most visited attraction.

    Budapest was the last destination I visited before the pandemic and has become one of my favourite holiday destinations. The nightlife in Budapest was great and I loved spending time visiting the different Turkish baths across the city.

    1. Why do people don’t travel?

    Money seems to be one of the biggest issues for people not to travel. Travelling is a huge expense and money can be a hinderance for people deciding to travel or not. War and social unrest is another reason why some decide not to travel and not wanting to be out of your comfort zone.

    2. What is the difference between an infrastructure and a superstructure?

    Infrastructure provides tourists with places to stay and easy modes of transport. Superstructure is the places and services that give tourists a positive experience.

    3. What are some factors that have or will be affecting tourism in the 21st century?

    Covid-19 is one of the biggest factors to hit the tourism industry in the past century. Other factors have been terrorism with a rise of attacks happening across the world. This can greatly reduce numbers of visitors to a place.

    4. What is the world’s top tourist destination?

    Paris seems to be one of the most visited cities in the world with the Eiffel Tower being a top destination for tourists.

    5. What is your favourite destination in the world and why?

    My favourite destination is Thailand, in 2018 I went travelling with my friend around the country. The beaches were some of the most beautiful I have ever seen whilst travelling. The food was amazing and it is a super affordable place to visit.

    1. Why do people don’t travel?

    I think money is a main reason for people not to travel. It can be a great expense to pay for travel, accommodation and other expenses. Other reasons can be fear of not knowing a new city or country well enough to feel safe.

    2. What is the difference between an infrastructure and a superstructure?

    Tourism infrastructure is the essential services needed for tourists such as travel and accommodation. Tourism superstructure is the businesses and services that give tourists a reason to visit.

    3. What are some factors that have or will be affecting tourism in the 21st century?

    Restrictions on visiting certain countries will be affecting the tourism industry because of Covid-19. Uncertainty over vaccination passports is another factor which will be affecting visitor numbers.

    4. What is the world’s to tourist destination?

    France seems to be the top tourist destination with 90 million tourists visiting worldwide.

    5. What is your favorite destination in the world and why?

    My favourite destination in the world is New Zealand. I really enjoy hillwalking and found New Zealand’s landscape breath-taking. The people were super friendly and one day I hope to move there.

    I agree with Jasmin and Max money does seem to be a big factor for the reason people don’t travel. I think this will also become a bigger problem as travelling might become more expensive if Covid-19 tests are needed and quarantining.

    1. Why do people don’t travel?

    Some people don’t like visiting countries with different cultures. Travelling can also be a very stressful experience for some, especially if there factors such as crime and language barriers. War and terrorism are other factors that result in people not travelling.

    2. What is the difference between an infrastructure and a superstructure?

    An infrastructure is the essential elements of tourism such as hotels and travel services. Superstructure is the amenities and provision of experiences for tourists.

    3. What are some factors that have or will be affecting tourism in the 21st century?

    Covid-19 will be the biggest factor to affect tourism in recent years. Businesses that rely on tourism, have struggled to find other ways to make money. Infrastructure is another factor that will affect tourism, if there are poor transport links and hotels, tourists will not visit.

    4. What is the world’s top tourist destination?

    France is the worlds top tourist destination.

    5. What is your favourite destination in the world and why?

    Visiting Rome in Italy is one of my favourite tourist destinations in the world. I love the history of the city and visiting parts of the ancient world that still exist today. Italian food is my favourite kind of food so I really enjoyed visiting different restaurants across Rome.

    1. The reason why people don’t travel as often nowadays is due to the issue of finance, the situation of the country and the environment .
    2.Infrastructure is constructed by the state or government as oppose to infrastructure which is built why whichever industry wants to, it is built in a private way.
    3.The biggest impact on tourism is due to the Covid restrictions and vaccinations as some areas requires tourists to be vaccinated in order to go to certain places.
    4.Switzerland is the biggest tourist destination in world as of today.
    5. My favorite destination is L.A. since i admire the atmosphere, the energy that is emitted,the people,the action,the weather and many other reasons.

    Why do people not travel?
    There are a lot of different reasons as to why people may not want to travel, it could be because of financial reasons or because of a lack of an opportunity, it could also be because of a fear of change or maybe it’s just because the person dislikes having to go on trips even if it’s only cross-country. At the end of the day it could just come down to a lack of interest or motivation for travelling.

    What is the difference between an infrastructure and a superstructure?
    The difference between the two is that the infrastructure forms the base or foundation of business activity, while the superstructure forms the facilities and operational procedures of business activity.

    What are some factors that have or will be affecting tourism in the 21st century?
    Covid-19 is definitely one of the biggest causes to the drop in tourism, the fear of being infected as well as the lack of tourist destinations that are actually open can also be considered a major factor.

    What is the world’s top tourist destination?
    As one of the ‘most iconic cities in the world’ Paris, France tops the list as the worlds top tourist destination. Of course the popularity of a place can always change but the fact that paris is one of the world’s most highly visited and one of the most iconic cities ever built will never change. There are more than a handful of beautiful landmarks that can be found in paris but the most popular and certainly the main attraction on any tourists bucket list is the Eiffel Tower.

    What is your favorite destination in the world and why
    My favourite destination is in fact Paris, but not for the tourist attractions. I love the city because of its rich history as well as the stunning architecture. The atmosphere is just so calming to me and the best thing to do in my opinion when visiting Paris, is to just sit outside a cafe with a nice cup of coffee just taking in the surroundings of one of France’s oldest cities after Calais. It’s the best way to spend an afternoon. Paris can be a bit costly but in my opinion, it’s always worth the stay.

    People don’t travel because of their economy, another reason could be the ongoing pandemic which is causing lockdowns in a lot of countries. Some people think of their footprint within the climate, which makes them reduce their travels or thing of better ways to move around which has a better impact on the environment.

    Infrastructure is basically railroads, roads and different power supplies and superstructure is Restaurants, casinos and cafes.

    One of the factors that will affect travel is probably the environment. Another factor is overcrowding in tourist destinations which can have a negative effect on travel and tourism because if the locals aren’t happy with too many tourists it won’t become a good tourist destination. Another factor is technology which will enhance traveling and make traveling a more comfortable experience.

    France is one of the top tourist destinations in the world with impressive infrastructure and superstructure. Their top city is Paris, which has the eiffel tower and the mona lisa. The eiffel tower is a popular location all year around but the city itself reaches its peak of tourists in the summer.

    My favorite travel destination is Aruba because of how the whole country is a very happy place with amazing buildings and beaches. They are also very big on hospitality and have one of the most welcoming locals. Its a place where you forget your problems and relax for a very nice holiday.

    1. Financial problems, especially during Covid. Traveling is also not worth it, since in some countries you have to be quarantined for a few weeks.
    2. The distinction between the two is that the infrastructure serves as the basis or base of economic activity, whilst the superstructure serves as the facilities and operating procedures. Infrastructure is constructed by the government, whereas superstructure is built by private businesses.
    3. Crowded areas and technology.
    4. France is the largest tourist destination in the world with 89.4 million visitors.
    5. Dubai is my favorite travel destination because of the weather, cuisine, and shopping centers.

    People might not travel due to financial causes, environmental causes, health reasons etc.
    The difference between an infrastructure and a superstructure is often or most cases the owner. Infrastructure is often owned and operated by the government. When a superstructure is a business or owned by a separate owner.
    Technology is for sure one factor that will develop much these coming 8-9 years, but also the rate of tourism. I think it will lower tourism in some places to keep the natural or somewhat natural facilities that need caring for us.
    Austria is the world’s top tourist destination. I think it is from the culture, history, and especially nature and wildlife.
    My favorite destination is Santa Cruz, California, as I lived there and have the most emotional connection. I think I will have extreme nostalgia towards that city.
