Holidays of tomorrow?

Posted by Richard Hammond at 06:15 on Friday 19 January 2007

We don't have to let tourism take us to hell in a hand cart...

The following article is written by Richard Hammond for Green Futures magazine, with additional comments from Mark Ellingham (founder of the Rough Guides), Alastair Sawday (publisher of Special Places to Stay), Tony Wheeler (co-founder of the Lonely Planet guides); Ranulph Fiennes (explorer), Ben Fogle (TV presenter), Nhan Chiem (corporate communications manager, HSBC); and Chris Tuppen (BT head of sustainable development and corporate accountability)...

"The vast rooftop terrace of the Kasbah du Toukal provides a spectacular setting. Feast your eyes on the panoramic views of the High Atlas Mountains. Treat your tastebuds to the hotel’s Moroccan haute cuisine. Treat your wallet gently by booking into a shared dorm – or splash out on a private luxury apartment. And give your conscience a break, as you reflect on what the locally managed Kasbah is bringing the local community by way of employment, farm incomes and funds. For this renovated fortress is the fairer face of tourism today."
