Economic reasons are what are given the most weightage some of them being expansion of markets and stabilization of prizes in different markets. But the more pertinent ones remain hidden as they are social in nature since opportunities to travel open a gamut of economic as well as social opportunities like meeting various people and exposure to various cultures and places that bring in a lot of awareness among travelers.
