Due to border restrictions brought about by Covid-19, it left most backpackers unable to travel. However, even when the world starts to distribute vaccines, businesses slowly begin to operate, backpackers might struggle to find their place as most hostels remain closed. According to the International Air Transport Association, the cheap flights that many backpackers rely on could soon become a thing of the past. Besides, more destinations now require proof of a negative PCR test adding to the cost of travel. But tourism has been a huge contribution to every country’s economy and backpacking may just need some time before it can get back to the way it has been.
