World Tourism Day


The United Nations created World Tourism Day (September 27) in 1979 to increase awareness of the importance of tourism and its social, cultural, political and economic values. World Tourism Day is hosted by the UNWTO.

Planeta.com has celebrated World Tourism Day for more than 20 years! We applaud the work of friends in the hospitality sector. You inspire us a billion times. Each year we ask a few questions and compile the responses.
