    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.
