People cannot fully enjoy landmarks if previous tourists have ruined them.

Anyone taking advantage of cheap flights to India should hope that other tourists have acted responsibly so that landmarks continue to be maintained in good condition.

Dan Linstead, editor of Wanderlust, explained that people should pursue a sustainable agenda for this “selfish” reason, as otherwise they will not be able to enjoy stunning locations as they used to be.

“Who wants to be denied the possibility of walking in a rainforest, snorkelling a coral reef, or tramping up a wild mountain side – just because those who have been before have trashed the place?” he asked.

In his opinion, responsible, green travel is all about acting like a good guest and being considerate of how your visit is going to affect a place.

Last week, Mr Linstead suggested people do plenty of research before embarking on a vacation, because this will allow them to arrange trips to less well-known landmarks and destinations.
