I Am The Dark Tourist
Travels to the Darkest Sites on Earth
H.E. Sawyer

A first-hand account of dark tourism would seem like an odd choice to be featured here. Think again. Thanatourism is an ever-growing field of the hospitality business, albeit one that is seldom discussed in the trade. One reason is that aspects can be deeply personal. Travelers may visit dark sites—such as the September 11 Memorial and Museum in New York or the Killing Fields of Cambodia—to satiate a desire to understand death. That is hardly the sort of experience that hoteliers can scale in travel magazines. Yet it is the vein of extreme individuality that make may this industry segment so riveting and relevant.
