The trending debate on whether one’s a tourist or traveler seems to be never ending. Everyone strives to be tagged as a traveler, not realizing that it is one’s overall approach towards travel that makes them either, and not merely their offbeat choice of things to do and places to visit! So, how do we tell if one’s a tourist or traveler? Despite the differences, there’s really no telling if one’s a tourist or traveler, which is why we’ve put together some of the clear-cut distinctions in this elaborate tourist vs traveler infographic.

While travelers tend to be attracted towards the less explored, uncommercialised places, tourists pick destinations on the basis of how famous, economically tourism-driven they are.
