Described by The New York Times as “the trailblazing patron saint of the world’s backpackers and adventure travelers,” Lonely Planet Co-founder Tony Wheeler’s new book On Travel is a celebration of the good things it brings. But with overtourism endangering cultures and fuel emissions endangering the planet, can we travel with a clear conscience? Tony shares his thoughts on travel today.

Dideskripsikan oleh The New York Times sebagai “santo pelindung yang luar biasa bagi para pejalan dan pelancong petualangan dunia”, buku baru berjudul On Travel karya Co-founder Lonely Planet Tony Wheeler adalah perayaan bagi hal-hal baik yang dibawanya. Namun, dengan overtourism yang membahayakan budaya dan emisi bahan bakar yang membahayakan planet ini, dapatkah kita melakukan perjalanan dengan nurani yang bersih? Tony membagikan pemikirannya tentang perjalanan hari ini.
