What is Reality Tourism?
Why do people travel? Some people travel for business, others for pleasure. Many of the people who travel for pleasure, tourists, want to escape their everyday life, do other things and see something new. Reality tours are instead about experiencing everyday life, but in a whole new place. Reality tourism is the new generation of tourism. Pleasure traveling was initially something people did to relax. In the next stage of tourism, people were looking for experiences, seeking out more stimulating events when travelling. Today more and more people see travelling as a means of understanding. Understanding a different culture or society, and the people who lives there. A reality tourists do completely other things than a regular tourist when on vacation. They go to job interviews, apartment viewings and house parties. They still escape their everyday life, but replace it with somebody else’s, to really get to experience the destination they are visiting.
