This issue of Issues & Trends, written by Olivier Henry-Biabaud, CEO of the UNWTO-Awarded TCI Research, focusses upon over-tourism and its impact on visitor experience and resident sentiment. Are highly popular cities still tourist-friendly? Is “tourismophobia” truly mainstream among residents? Based on exclusive data, TCI Research shares its insights on how destinations in the Asia Pacific region can learn from the recent ‘Tourists Go Home’ trend in Europe.

This edition will help destinations and visitor economy stakeholders gain a more informed position on this phenomenon in order to manage it well before it may become a problem.
