Responsible Travel

The capital city of the Grand EST region is Strasbourg. It is the seat of the European Parliament and several other European institutions and bodies, including the European council and the European Court of Human Rights.

Located in northeastern France, Strasbourg is a perfect cultural and architectural mixture of German and French influences near the German border. The capital city plays a significant role as a cultural, business, and commercial center.

From the perspective of a tourist, Strasbourg is a must-visit, as the city is filled with exciting sites and tourism plays a significant role in overall growth and development. So, it's your duty to follow the path of an ideal tourist and participate in the betterment of a place. Here are a few simple ways which you can follow to become a responsible tourist.

  • When you are abroad, you should always be concerned about where to spend money. Here comes a great opportunity to contribute to a foreign place's economy by buying local products. If you have the chance, buy authentic local products instead of spending money on a luxurious suite. Also, protect the fauna by banning leather products.
  • Always participate in local volunteering programs. Donate some money or teach certain things- give back whenever it's possible.
  • Throw your trash only in the designated places. It may seem way little to be concerned about, but if every tourist starts throwing trash everywhere, imagine what can happen to the city! So, take a step ahead and start making changes.
  • Take a train or bus rather than a plane or book a sustainable plane ticket. And while moving around, try to ignore taxis or cars, use local transportation.
  • Don't use wastewater. You may not suffer much but remember you will leave in a few days, and the local people will suffer from the shortage.
