Could Wellness Travel Be The Solution To Overtourism?

Traveling around the globe is easier than it has ever been: a mixture of technology and transport improvements along with a growth of disposable income has made it accessible for more people. But the impact intense travel has on the world’s most popular destinations, as well as those not equipped for their booming popularity, is taking an ecological toll. The Global Wellness Summit’s recent 2019 Trend Report points to the rise of wellness travel as a potential solution—but how can it fix overtourism?

Or, jostled with selfie sticks at a famous landmark so surrounded by people, you can’t actually see the thing itself (hello, Mona Lisa)?

That’s what will be at the heart of Global Wellness Summit (GWS) to be held in Hong Kong in August 2019. It aims to bring together leaders from the medical, travel, spa, beauty, fitness, nutrition, technology, financial and architecture worlds to debate where wellness is headed.

Good Housekeeping’s wellness trends report 2019 pegs the wellness industry at a massive USD 4.2 trillion globally.

Visit The Largest Spa In North America

A scream breaks through the peaceful sanctuary and several bathers look around to see what, or who has created the ruckus. A splash from the cold dip pool and a very quick run to the safety of the sauna reveal that it was just part of the thermal cycle, here at Spa Nordik.

The icy water in this large pool, fed from a waterfall is set to a chilling 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Many guests avoid it altogether or venture in up to their thighs before dashing back out. Only the very brave submerge themselves fully into the frigid pool.

Your reward for that act of bravery and the next stage in the cycle is to rest in any of the dedicated spaces either indoors or out, depending on the weather.
