According to the Cambridge Dictionary, local as an adjective means “from, existing in, serving, or responsible for a smallarea, especially of a country”
If you travel to another country and you have this passion to be an impactful traveler, the simplest thing you can do is track where your tourist money goes to avoid what is called the ‘Tourism Leakage’. It simply means that a huge chunk of your tourist dollar leaves the country to where you travel instead of doing its magic to the locals.
