World Tourism Day (WTD), celebrated every year on 27 September, is a global observance to highlight tourism’s social, cultural, political and economic value.
WTD 2014 has been celebrated around the world under the theme Tourism and Community Development - focusing on the ability of tourism to empower people and provide them with skills to achieve change in their local communities.
Following the official WTD celebrations in Guadalajara, Mexico, we want to hear from YOU. Let us know how you celebrated, send us your best photos on this year’s theme for the WTD Facebook album and join the #WTD2014 conversation on Twitter to share your thoughts and experiences with the global tourism community.
