What's the difference between a tourist and a traveller? Holidify, a company catering to people wishing to visit India, just released a series of simple images illustrating their interpretation of this question. Spoiler alert! If you like to stay in hotels and own a selfie stick, you're probably a tourist!

But are you stuck with those other people or can you just move from group to group, that's what I think this signifies

a traveller will travel alone, then meet people in the country they travel, a tourist bring his shit with him, and his F... culture, can't open an eye to another culture

Well... it depends the place you go.

Tourists are guided around in a group, like sheep. The tour guide (shepherd) decides what they will see, where they will shop, etc. Travellers are more likely to head off on their own, talk to the locals, find the places the tours don't go to... So this one gets my vote. But Travellers don't necessarily have to sleep in tents, climb mountains, lug around a tripod and expensive camera, etc. So I think the rest are bogus distinctions.

How so IvanaDuric? We love cruising but not at the expense of ruining a town.

It's the difference between cheap generic crap that's pushed onto out of towners versus buying a momento that captures the essence of the memory.

You can be a traveler and do both of these things. Taking a cab in a foreign place is an adventure too!

All of these assume that travellers are outdoorsy.
