Despite the group’s love of instant gratification and selfies, the discerning traveler subset is defining in-demand travel, seeking unique, life-enriching moments over flashy, superficial ones.

Moreover, they actually make up 20 percent of all global tourists,” states The Herman Group, a management consultant firm.
