When you visit a place on holiday do you ever wonder how much of your hard earned cash ends up in the pocket of the waiter or chambermaid who provides the hotel service? Where has the water come from that is being sprinkled over the golf course greens? And do those notices in hotel bathrooms urging you to reuse your towels make any real difference to the ecosystem? Sandi Toksvig looks at the impact of tourism on the communities and environment of travellers' destinations and whether there is a way to travel without harming our hosts.
And if you fancy a day at the races there are nearly sixty courses in Britain to choose from. But the experience watching the horses thunder down the last furlong varies greatly from track to track. The punter's guide to travelling to race meetings is on this week's show.
