Overcrowding. Lengthy queues. Resentment from locals. Loss of authenticity. Disappointment. As tourists, how can we break this cycle and improve tourism for locals, their communities, their culture and environment - as well as for ourselves? By taking steps to "be invisible," of course!

Unbeknownst to most tourists, there is a hidden power within them. They just need to now how to find it. This handbook examines the lesser-known problems with overtourism, how they came to be and details practical solutions to help you unlock this power to use as a force for good. After all, our vacation destination is someone else's home, not just a pretty picture on social media.

Packed with everything you need to know to tailor your own invisibility cloak, in this handbook you'll learn how to:

Plan a stress-free trip every time & ways to reduce disappointment

Enjoy popular destinations without contributing to overcrowding

Feel fulfilled by personal, authentic encounters with locals whilst helping their businesses

Avoid pickpockets & scammers for a safe travel experience

Preserve local cultures & identities instead of diluting them

Protect attractions of significant cultural heritage & the natural environment.

With never-before shared anecdotes of Alyse's travels over 13 years interwoven throughout, the book is broken into four parts. In the final part, you'll discover exactly how to amplify the positive aspects of tourism before, during and even after a trip through a carefully crafted blueprint to benefit host communities as well as yourself.

Go on, find out how to minimise your tourist footprint and maximise your travel experiences by "blending in!"

"alyse really hits the nail on the head, outlining how the travel industry in its present form has many aspects that simply aren't sustainable. however, she explores tools and tactics we have at our disposal to change that, and argues that we can bend tourism toward its better nature." - van, insidejapan tours



"the carefully curated tips and delightful anecdotes alyse peppers throughout the book will stay with you long after you finish reading. we're really encouraged to be more reflective of our impact on the places already overwhelmed by tourism, and can't wait to apply our new learnings to our travels in the future." - jane & pat, klook travel
