A number of destinations across the globe levy a certain tourist tax. This is usually incorporated within other costs such as airline tickets, visa charges or entry fees at popular tourist attractions. A tourist tax is levied in order to maintain the additional infrastructural burden that falls on such popular destinations. Now, increasingly a tourist tax is becoming the norm. While France and Italy long had this, Spain has also joined in. Similar taxes also exist in other European countries such as in Switzerland, Portugal, Austria, Romania, Greece and Belgium. A few states in the USA too have it. One country that has taken this business innovation to a whole new extent is the UK. Here, the costs are prohibitively high, but to be fair, the amenities covered are also far more extensive. The tiny Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan meanwhile uses this additional income to keep alive its heritage.
