“To travel is to live,” mused Hans Christian Anderson. But in places defined by tourism, how deeply do we consider the impact our presence has on the places we pass through and the people we pass by? Is there really a difference between being a traveler and being a tourist? Our panel delves into some of the uncomfortable questions of travel.

“Perjalanan adalah hidup,” renung Hans Christian Anderson. Namun, di tempat-tempat yang ditetapkan oleh pariwisata, seberapa dalam kita mempertimbangkan dampak kehadiran kita terhadap tempat-tempat yang kita lalui dan orang-orang yang kita lewati? Apakah benar-benar ada perbedaan antara menjadi seorang pelancong dan menjadi seorang turis? Panel kami menyelidiki beberapa pertanyaan perjalanan yang tidak menyenangkan.
