If you are reading this blog, we assume it is because you like to travel, but do you know where travelers' day comes from? Since 1980, World Tourism Day is celebrated every September 27. However, this date was not chosen by chance: it was that day - in 1970 - when the Statutes of the World Tourism Organization, the UNWTO, were approved. The main purpose of this celebration is to raise awareness among the international community about the value of tourism from a cultural, social, political and economic point of view, and this year, New Delhi has been the city chosen as the host for the annual event.
