The Future of Travel: People Want to Go to Familiar Places – Bloomberg

I am writing this from Amritsar, India, in the state of Punjab. The Sikh Golden Temple here is one of India’s leading attractions, and last night I shared space with thousands of people over the course of four or five hours. In that time, I saw only two people who might qualify as White Westerners.

That simple observation — plus my travels over the past year to Denmark, Switzerland, Ireland, Portugal, Mexico, England, Argentina and Colombia — have led me to a theory about the future associated with travel: The world is entering a new era in which exotic journeys are for more of a travel elite than a moneyed top notch.
