New Study Named 38 Ways Microentrepreneurs Harass Visitors

A new study identified 38 ways micro-traders harass visitors at destinations. The research team looked at trader harassment of visitors in 152 countries and territories. The top three ways found were by: tricking visitors into paying more than they should have; quoting visitors inflated price; and approaching visitors one after the other. The study was recently published in the Journal of Quality Assurance in Hospitality & Tourism.
