Reimagining the $9 trillion tourism economy—what will it take?
Hey everyone, I recently read an article that McKinsey published on the future or the tourism industry following this
This is certainly a different concept to boost tourism: turning entire streets and neighborhoods into connected hostels.
“Blue Paradise Hostel” is a tourism project designed by a team of young entrepreneurs and architects, whose idea is to change the face of the center of Zadar at the Adriatic coast by turning the entire streets into hostels, linked together with joint infrastructure and wind tunnels.
PR manager of the entrepreneurial team Sara Maria Knezevic said to the daily Slobodna Dalmacija that in the first phase, by the end of next year there will be 150 new hostel beds available through this project. Blue Paradise Hostel represents a project that the designers work on a daily basis, and Knezevic said that it represents a completely innovative and creative approach to this type of tourism.
-Our intention is to inspire others to turne the streets of Zadar into hostels, because it is the future of our tourism and it could be a good presentation of Croatia in the world – said Knezevic.
I had trouble finding any more information than this about the project. If anyone knows more, please feel free to elaborate.
