There are very few modern industries that have not been affected in some way by the ever increasing presence and capacity of the Internet. The tourism and travel industry has changed completely in the digital age, experiencing equal triumphs and setbacks. The Internet has made worldwide communication as easy as pressing a button, furthering globalization and fostering a sense of security in those who visit foreign countries.
On the other hand, the ease with which a person can access information, videos, and images of another country can sometimes discourage travel itself.
