Tourists can use electric cars and buses. »

Petra and Santorini called to follow the movement

From now on, the NGO wishes to extend this ban to other important tourist places which continue the exploitation of horses and camels for the walk of the tourists. So Peta calls "other destinations which still offer horse-drawn carriage or animal rides, such as Petra, in Jordan , or Santorini, in Greece , to follow in the footsteps of Egypt and switch to animal-free transport ”.
