The way people vacation is changing. Where once people were
fixated on visiting all of the major landmarks of a country, it is now
quickly changing to travelers searching for that hidden gem, a place
off the beaten path that only they know about. With the worldwide
boom in social media and developments in transportation and
technology, there is a new depth of fun to traveling.
“Global Village”, a phrase commonly used to describe the world, has the connotation that everything is closer now than before and that places deemed “big cities” are all the same no matter where you go. A city’s personality and vibe don’t seem all that different from any other. Hence, glocal vacations are growing in popularity because they offer travelers a truly authentic experience. There are clear indicators that this new trend is well on its way to being a steady seller. A term combining the words “global” and “local”, glocal means to globalize a country’s regional culture. A glocal trip shows the people of the world the vibrant and colorful cultures that go on in the far reaches of a country that are often not well experienced.
