From ancient days , from the time of Egyptian civilization about 4000 years back , man was Travelling.
Those days , man used to travel to find new land , food, resources & Trade.
In the Greeks & Roman times upto the middle ages , man travelled for Trade .
In Asia, especially in India, China & Malaysia coast , Trade & exchange of knowledge were the prime reasons for man to Travel.
In modern times, with the advent of Aeroplane, Automobiles & Infrastructure , people started travelling for seeing the world , Leisure & knowing new things.
That is why many people focus on sightseeing & comfort when they are travelling.
Today, elderly & middle aged generation want to see the world.
Also there is a huge business traffic wherein businessman travel throughout the world , for trade & business.
Thus today’s travel is leisure, sightseeing and business.
How do we travel in the next 20,30 ,50 years?
Following points will be the future trends.
1) Reduction of Business Traffic:-
With Internet communication becoming so strong, with webcam, internet phones & web conferences, Businessman would do most of their Business, without travelling & they will be talking on web.
We believe that with the powerful internet overall the business traffic is going to go down in the next 20 – 30 years.
2) Experience will be the Key:-
Today’s youngsters are so good at internet surfing that they probably have no mystery.
They have seen Youtube , Videos, Wikipedia & websites for many places.
Once upon a time, National History Museums of New York or London used to be a big attraction.
Today’s youngsters just laugh at them, because on Wikipedia & Google,
they have seen & studied most of the objects of their own interests.
What the youngsters want, is not sightseeing , but they want Experience.
Future of the traveled world would be to Experience , to Feel & to do.
They would love to be in Theme parks, They would love to play Sports, Horse riding, Camping, Biking, Hiking, Trekking, Shopping, Self Drive, Camper vans & so on.
People would love to experience the activities they like.
Just sightseeing would go out of place.
3) Leisure & Luxury would be up:-
Leisure , Luxury, Hotels , Fine Dines, Cruises ,Good Apartment stays would all go up.

Luxury cruise Liners , with comforts , views & activities would be in demand.
4) Theme Travels would go up :-
People would travel to attend music festivals, see sports events, & would go for a particular theme.
This travel would go up in a big way.
5) Travelling to meet Friends & know new people.
