    Ministers of Tourism from across the globe discuss what the travel industry should do about the emerging phenomenon of Overtourism. Overtourism has increasingly been used to describe destinations that are overwhelmed with large volumes of tourists, or where the impact of tourist development is negatively affecting their home without providing enough benefits in return. From Barcelona to Thailand, cities and regions are now beginning to take matters into their own hands.
