Noting that it just had it best November on record for Canadian bookings, G Adventures makes it clear that ‘travel is back’ and 2023 is set to be the first full year of recovery for the industry since the pandemic began.
However, clearly aware of the increasing cost of living facing travellers and the importance of the tourism recovery for local communities around the world, G Adventures has released ‘Where to Travel’ list which highlights the best adventures for 2023 that offer affordability and added value in-destination, while still giving back to the local communities that are trying to revive – and ultimately thrive – following the impact of the pandemic on the international tourism industry.
Bruce Poon Tip, founder of G Adventures, says while 2023 is set to be the year of full recovery for travel businesses, it’s important travel companies still keep their eye on the ball when it comes to sustainability.
Says Poon Tip: “Our ‘Where to Travel’ list this year focuses on value and giving back to local communities. There’s still a lot of pent-up demand in the market, and people have discretionary income saved from not travelling for two years, but economic uncertainty is still present. Travel restrictions have relaxed a lot however, so it’s become much easier for people to get away.”
He continued: “Travellers have changed what they are looking for in terms of meaningful experiences supporting local people and the environment – travel is building back differently, and better. It’s going to be so important to continue with that focus no matter what happens economically this year.”
Packed with the best destinations travellers can enjoy in 2023, the Where To Travel List focuses not just on affordability, but also added value and life-changing experiences that come as part of a small-group trip with G Adventures, all which have strong social impact for local communities in the destination.
G Adventures’ Where to Travel List features trips ranging in length from four to 14 days and priced from $549 per person to $4,799 per person to destinations that include Sri Lanka, Turkey, Japan, Peru, Thailand, Morocco, Mexico, Egypt, South Africa, The Balkans, Costa Rica and Vietnam.
