What is industrial and post-industrial tourism?

Once a youth subculture, now it's a travel trend that is gaining momentum around the world. It's the industrial tourism.

If an "all inclusive" package tour to a popular beach destination may "recharge your batteries," it may not recharge your soul.

 

Here are some ideas if you are in search of transformational travel and life-changing travel experiences.
