Practical Tips for the Global Traveller
To facilitate the understanding of the principles of the Global Code of Ethics for Tourism by tourists, a more user-friendly text and format of the leaflet “The Responsible Tourist and Traveller” (2005, details below), was prepared by the World Committee on Tourism Ethics for its ninth meeting, held in Luxor, Egypt, in April 2010. The "Practical Tips for the Global Traveller" (2010) brochure highlights those principles of the Code directly related to tourists, in order to help guide travellers in making their behaviour ever more responsible.

"The Responsible Tourist and Traveller" brochure was approved by the World Committee on Tourism Ethics in May 2005 and endorsed by UNWTO resolution A/RES/506(XVI) adopted at Dakar, Senegal, in December 2005, by which the General Assembly recommends the dissemination of this text to the travelling public worldwide.
