Good Tourist by Lucy Popescu
Book DescriptionBehind the island paradises, panoramic views and historical sites there often lies a different story. Using her twenty-year experience in the field of human rights, personal anecdotes and the testimonies of survivors, Lucy Popescu explores the various abuses that often go unnoticed or are carefully hidden from the tourist. From torture in the Maldives, the labour camps of China, seeking asylum in Australia to execution in Iran. Inspired by the ethical flying drive and the rise in investment of projects to offset carbon emissions, "The Good Tourist", rather than deterring tourists from their chosen destination, serves as a practical guide to what you can do after your holiday to help a cause or support a people.
