Eco Escapism

Catering to travelers bored with manufactured experiences, brands head outdoors

Implications - Vacationing usually consists of relaxation and sightseeing, but modern attractions are pushing tourists outside the walls of museums and hotels to experience surrounding natural beauty in an effort to satisfy a desire for full sensory stimulation. Particularly applicable to Boomers that have a certain wanderlust for adventure, the incorporation of eco elements and arboreal design enhances the overall level of escapism for travelers that are looking beyond just novel pastimes like dining and spas to the memories or revelations that could be made in a more Qi-focused setting.
