A timely documentary that raises urgent questions about how we travel and the unintended cultural and environmental consequences of tourism around the globe. Gringo Trails follows well-worn travelers' routes through Bolivia, Thailand, Mali, and Bhutan and reveals the complex relationships between colliding cultures, such as the host countries' need for financial security and the tourists who provide it in their quest for authentic experiences. Through the stories of both travelers and locals, the film explores the dramatic impact of travel and tourism around the world over the past 30 years, highlighting the cases of the Amazon Tuichi River and Uyuni (Bolivia), Ko Phangan (Thailand), Timbuktu (Mali) and Bhutan.

Was very sad to see the destruction that humans have done to the planet. The movie seems to focus on the backpacking group and I'm not sure they can take full responsibility to all the destruction that has been done to pristine landscapes. Was a very hard movie to watch and we shut it off after 45 minutes.

This was fantastic. I wish there had been videos on this subject a long time ago. It was by far the most interesting "travel" video I've seen in years. I think it's really important that people think about the human, ecological and cultural toll that tourism sometimes takes on people.
