Peace and harmony with yourself and others is the key to survival and through compassion and understanding, there are always possibilities to build and sustain a positive and permanent bridge between people. This is exactly what tourism and Peace has in common. When you tour a country and gain knowledge from what you experienced, there is the tendency that your understanding of others is upgraded to the positive or negative. The more you know about the world the more we are closer to the achievement of Peace around the globe.
The more we integrate and communicate the better chances we have to understand each other. People who travel far and wide have a better understanding of the economic, political and cultural situation of others compared to somebody who has never travelled. Tourism can bring higher living standard in a country if well managed to serve the interest of the nation. The people who have access to the basic needs in advance societies can translate the meaning of Peace and it`s achievement in a different way compared to somebody from a poor economy without access to the basic needs.
