The issue of whether international tourism is a negative problem remains a matter for debate.
People cannot deny the noticeable impacts of tourism on the local life. Through indirect business like retails and transportation, there are more jobs for the local, which increasing extra tax revenues from airport and hotel taxes. Government could use incomes from tourism business to improve schools, housing, and hospital. To attract visitors, infracstuctures and new leisure amenities must be invested, leading to life standards can be higher. Through real interaction with foreigners, the global awareness of some issues as poverty and human rights abuses can be raised.
As a matter of fact, tourism to some extent would pose a threat to region’s natural and cultural resources. In fact, water supply, beaches, and herritage sites can reduce their quality when being overused. The emissions from travel pollutes the environment. Secondly, it is true that tourism can generate more jobs; however, these are usually seasonal and poorly paid. Besides, increasing number of tourists might puss up local property prices, cost, goods, and services. Finally, crime and congestion are major problems caused by tourism development. Travellers with camera, money or valuable possession easily attracts criminals.
In my opinion, the problems caused by tourism should be carefully paid attention by not only the local, but also the government and tourists. The authorities should orientate their national and regional tourist strategies so that they can minimize the unexpected effects to social and environment. Each and every tourists ought to respect their destinations, no littering or distroying the wildlife and native culture.
People can say tourism is more harm than goods. It is needed to consider to protect native culture and environment.
