A lot has been written about overtourism and how cities are inundated by unceasing waves of tourists that are causing strain to infrastructure and disruption to everyday life. For locals, their city is resembling less like a home and more like a hotel. Yet, even in the most popular of destinations, there exist tourist sights that are often out of tourists' sight. Based on fieldwork in nine relatively lesser known tourist sites across Asia, the book poses several questions: Why are these neighbourhoods, temples, museums and parks experiencing undertourism? And what does it say about the desires and motivations of tourists and travellers?
