Throughout the week we post dozens of original stories, connecting the dots across the travel industry, and every weekend we sum it all up. This weekend roundup examines tourism trends.

For all of our weekend roundups, go here.

Universal Is Going for Full-On Immersion With New Harry Potter Ride: Universal has seen huge returns on its Harry Potter investments.

Bogotá’s Potential in Wellness Tourism Starts With an Amazonian Nut: The cacay nut is a perfect example of how tourists can directly benefit entire countries simply by buying products for their own wellness in cities like Bogotá that help support poorer regions throughout Colombia.

Skift Forum Europe: New Methods to Combat Overtourism. Finding ways to insulate destinations from the adverse effects of overtourism is a daunting challenge. Global groups are starting to do the hard work of devising methods to better manage destinations.

Luxury Tour Operators Expand Into Wellness to Meet New Demand: Luxury tour operators have incredible advantages over wellness industry competitors in crafting dynamic, immersive wellness-first travel experiences.
