Every year on 27th Sept World Tourism Day is celebrated under the auspices of World Tourism Organization (UNWTO).

Every year, the UNWTO chooses a different theme, thus promoting a better understanding of tourism trends and the importance of sustainable tourism. As the year 2017 is the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development, this year's theme is ''Sustainable Tourism, a Tool for Development'' with the motto #TravelEnjoyRespect. The official World Tourism Day celebration will be held in Doha (Quatar).

On the occasion of World Tourism Day, the Secretary-General of the United Nations' World Tourism Organization Taleb Rifai sent the following message: ''Whenever you travel, wherever you travel, remember to: respect nature, respect culture, respect your host. You can be the change you want to see in the world. You can be an ambassador for a better future!''
