Tourism is an industry that is going to keep on developing in the future since the world is quickly globalizing. Vacation rentals are also important because they help people settle more conveniently in different areas for the duration of their trip. The interesting part is that tourism is not only defined as leisure travels, but also accounts for business activities. Thanks to technology, the world is getting smaller and smaller as tourism continues to play its instrumental role. Who knows, maybe in 25 years people will take trips to space. How is that for a luxury vacation?
