Before COVID-19 hit, overtourism was the biggest problem in the world of travel. Then, seemingly overnight, tourism nearly ceased. But as travel resumes, will we return to a world of overrun monuments, littered beaches, bumper-to-bumper traffic in national parks, and gridlocked city streets?

Or can we create sustainable, healthy tourism centered on principles like equity, conservation, and good governance? Overtourism: Lessons for a Better Future, edited by Martha Honey, co-founder and former Executive Director of the Center for Responsible Travel (CREST), and Kelsey Frenkiel, a Program Manager at CREST, charts a path toward tourism that is truly sustainable, focusing on the triple bottom line of people, planet, and prosperity.

Bringing together tourism officials, city council members, travel journalists, consultants, scholars, and trade association members, this practical book explores the impacts of and solutions to overcrowding from a variety of perspectives.
