Sustainable Tourism is the idea of visiting a place as a visitor and endeavoring to have a beneficial outcome on nature, society, and economy as a whole. It doesn’t mean changing the whole concept of tourism and all but practicing the same old thing in a more better way using modern ideas and equipment, less harming the biotic elements, increasing the revenue and maximizing the tourist satisfaction. Whatever we call Sustainable Tourism, Green Tourism, Responsible Tourism, or Eco-Tourism, the theme and the idea is the same.
