As you may know, World Tourism Day took place this month on 27th September 2017. We’re taking this opportunity to fill you in on the best locations for sustainable travel. Green travel is a rising trend and there are a number of locations throughout the world that are hot spots for celebrities. These aren’t the types of places you might go for mung beans and limited hot water, but are aiming to appeal to a more high-maintenance clientele whilst still retaining their green status.
So channel your best Leonardo DiCaprio, Stella McCartney or Charlize Theron in these eco-friendly destinations with a luxurious feel!
