Anti-Tourism Rising

Reuters: Top tourism spots crack down as they become victim of own success
The nation generating the most tourists is China - 143 million trips abroad in 2017, while France and Spain receive the most visits - more than 80 million a year.

The boom is down to a fast-expanding global middle class combined with a proliferation of budget airlines and online travel agents which have made travel cheap and easy. A Londoner can fly to the south of France for less than 20 pounds ($25).

"The perception of going on holiday has shifted from being pretty much a privilege to becoming very much a right," said Marina Novelli, professor of tourism and international development at the University of Brighton.
And if the world continues on its current trajectory, the number of tourists coming out of India and China will double or triple.

There will be a bull market in walls.
