The sheer numbers of cultural travelers will knock your socks off! How did this happen?

WRAP your mind around this figure if you can: by the end of the year, the global tourism market is expected to reach 1 billion passengers a year. International passenger numbers hit 980 million last year, according to the World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) and growth is expected to continue this year, albeit at a more modest pace.

The cultural traveler of 2012 will be one that transcends the barriers of language, and obstacles in getting to unknown places.  The cultural traveler of  the present day is a seeker of knowledge and wisdom that only comes through the experience of being in new cultures.
