How Daylight Saving Time Can Promote Tourism

Daylight Saving , an attempt by governments to save energy using measures like 'modifying clock timings' or 'changing office hours', are experienced through out the world through March to November , generally. In recent studies, it has been suggested that , apart from an efficient mode of energy-saving, DST shall also serve as a means of promoting tourism. The idea presented is that, while  energy would be saved during the day , more of it shall be available for late hours (evening and night time) , when people prefer leaving their houses to visit parks and other attractions.

"In a nutshell, it would extend the spring and fall shoulder seasons for the tourism industry," said Kurt Janson, policy director at the Tourism Alliance, a lead organization in the United Kingdom's Campaign for Daylight Saving. "There would be more usable daylight in the evening hours, when people are out and about and attractions are open."
