The Case Against Travel

By Agnes Callard

An illustration of a tourist dragging along a suitcase while enclosed in a bubble.

What is the most uninformative statement that people are inclined to make? My nominee would be “I love to travel.” This tells you very little about a person, because nearly everyone likes to travel; and yet people say it, because, for some reason, they pride themselves both on having travelled and on the fact that they look forward to doing so.

The opposition team is small but articulate. G. K. Chesterton wrote that “travel narrows the mind.” Ralph Waldo Emerson called travel “a fool’s paradise.” Socrates and Immanuel Kant—arguably the two greatest philosophers of all time—voted with their feet, rarely leaving their respective home towns of Athens and Königsberg. But the greatest hater of travel, ever, was the Portuguese writer Fernando Pessoa , whose wonderful “ Book of Disquiet ” crackles with outrage:

I abhor new ways of life and unfamiliar places. . . . The idea of travelling nauseates me. . . . Ah, let those who don’t exist travel! . . . Travel is for those who cannot feel. . . . Only extreme poverty of the imagination justifies having to move around to feel.

If you are inclined to dismiss this as contrarian posturing, try shifting the object of your thought from your own travel to that of others. At home or abroad, one tends to avoid “touristy” activities. “Tourism” is what we call travelling when other people are doing it. And, although people like to talk about their travels, few of us like to listen to them. Such talk resembles academic writing and reports of dreams: forms of communication driven more by the needs of the producer than the consumer.

One common argument for travel is that it lifts us into an enlightened state, educating us about the world and connecting us to its denizens. Even Samuel Johnson , a skeptic—“What I gained by being in France was, learning to be better satisfied with my own country,” he once said—conceded that travel had a certain cachet. Advising his beloved Boswell, Johnson recommended a trip to China, for the sake of Boswell’s children: “There would be a lustre reflected upon them. . . . They would be at all times regarded as the children of a man who had gone to view the wall of China.”

Travel gets branded as an achievement: see interesting places, have interesting experiences, become interesting people. Is that what it really is?

Pessoa, Emerson, and Chesterton believed that travel, far from putting us in touch with humanity, divorced us from it. Travel turns us into the worst version of ourselves while convincing us that we’re at our best. Call this the traveller’s delusion.

To explore it, let’s start with what we mean by “travel.” Socrates went abroad when he was called to fight in the Peloponnesian War; even so, he was no traveller. Emerson is explicit about steering his critique away from a person who travels when his “necessities” or “duties” demand it. He has no objection to traversing great distances “for the purpose of art, of study, and benevolence.” One sign that you have a reason to be somewhere is that you have nothing to prove, and therefore no drive to collect souvenirs, photos, or stories to prove it. Let’s define “tourism” as the kind of travel that aims at the interesting—and, if Emerson and company are right, misses.

“A tourist is a temporarily leisured person who voluntarily visits a place away from home for the purpose of experiencing a change.” This definition is taken from the opening of “ Hosts and Guests ,” the classic academic volume on the anthropology of tourism. The last phrase is crucial: touristic travel exists for the sake of change. But what, exactly, gets changed? Here is a telling observation from the concluding chapter of the same book: “Tourists are less likely to borrow from their hosts than their hosts are from them, thus precipitating a chain of change in the host community.” We go to experience a change, but end up inflicting change on others.

For example, a decade ago, when I was in Abu Dhabi, I went on a guided tour of a falcon hospital. I took a photo with a falcon on my arm. I have no interest in falconry or falcons, and a generalized dislike of encounters with nonhuman animals. But the falcon hospital was one of the answers to the question, “What does one do in Abu Dhabi?” So I went. I suspect that everything about the falcon hospital, from its layout to its mission statement, is and will continue to be shaped by the visits of people like me—we unchanged changers, we tourists. (On the wall of the foyer, I recall seeing a series of “excellence in tourism” awards. Keep in mind that this is an animal hospital.)

Why might it be bad for a place to be shaped by the people who travel there, voluntarily, for the purpose of experiencing a change? The answer is that such people not only do not know what they are doing but are not even trying to learn. Consider me. It would be one thing to have such a deep passion for falconry that one is willing to fly to Abu Dhabi to pursue it, and it would be another thing to approach the visit in an aspirational spirit, with the hope of developing my life in a new direction. I was in neither position. I entered the hospital knowing that my post-Abu Dhabi life would contain exactly as much falconry as my pre-Abu Dhabi life—which is to say, zero falconry. If you are going to see something you neither value nor aspire to value, you are not doing much of anything besides locomoting.

Tourism is marked by its locomotive character. “I went to France.” O.K., but what did you do there? “I went to the Louvre.” O.K., but what did you do there? “I went to see the ‘Mona Lisa.’ ” That is, before quickly moving on: apparently, many people spend just fifteen seconds looking at the “Mona Lisa.” It’s locomotion all the way down.

The peculiar rationality of tourists allows them to be moved both by a desire to do what they are supposed to do in a place and a desire to avoid precisely what they are supposed to do. This is how it came to pass that, on my first trip to Paris, I avoided both the “Mona Lisa” and the Louvre. I did not, however, avoid locomotion. I walked from one end of the city to the other, over and over again, in a straight line; if you plotted my walks on a map, they would have formed a giant asterisk. In the many great cities I have actually lived and worked in, I would never consider spending whole days walking. When you travel, you suspend your usual standards for what counts as a valuable use of time. You suspend other standards as well, unwilling to be constrained by your taste in food, art, or recreational activities. After all, you say to yourself, the whole point of travelling is to break out of the confines of everyday life. But, if you usually avoid museums, and suddenly seek them out for the purpose of experiencing a change, what are you going to make of the paintings? You might as well be in a room full of falcons.

Let’s delve a bit deeper into how, exactly, the tourist’s project is self-undermining. I’ll illustrate with two examples from “The Loss of the Creature,” an essay by the writer Walker Percy.

First, a sightseer arriving at the Grand Canyon. Before his trip, an idea of the canyon—a “symbolic complex”—had formed in his mind. He is delighted if the canyon resembles the pictures and postcards he has seen; he might even describe it as “every bit as beautiful as a picture postcard!” But, if the lighting is different, the colors and shadows not those which he expects, he feels cheated: he has arrived on a bad day. Unable to gaze directly at the canyon, forced to judge merely whether it matches an image, the sightseer “may simply be bored; or he may be conscious of the difficulty: that the great thing yawning at his feet somehow eludes him.”

Second, a couple from Iowa driving around Mexico. They are enjoying the trip, but are a bit dissatisfied by the usual sights. They get lost, drive for hours on a rocky mountain road, and eventually, “in a tiny valley not even marked on the map,” stumble upon a village celebrating a religious festival. Watching the villagers dance, the tourists finally have “an authentic sight, a sight which is charming, quaint, picturesque, unspoiled.” Yet they still feel some dissatisfaction. Back home in Iowa, they gush about the experience to an ethnologist friend: You should have been there! You must come back with us! When the ethnologist does, in fact, return with them, “the couple do not watch the goings-on; instead they watch the ethnologist! Their highest hope is that their friend should find the dance interesting.” They need him to “certify their experience as genuine.”

The tourist is a deferential character. He outsources the vindication of his experiences to the ethnologist, to postcards, to conventional wisdom about what you are or are not supposed to do in a place. This deference, this “openness to experience,” is exactly what renders the tourist incapable of experience. Emerson confessed, “I seek the Vatican, and the palaces. I affect to be intoxicated with sights and suggestions, but I am not intoxicated.” He speaks for every tourist who has stood before a monument, or a painting, or a falcon, and demanded herself to feel something. Emerson and Percy help us understand why this demand is unreasonable: to be a tourist is to have already decided that it is not one’s own feelings that count. Whether an experience is authentically X is precisely what you, as a non-X, cannot judge.

A similar argument applies to the tourist’s impulse to honor the grand sea of humanity. Whereas Percy and Emerson focus on the aesthetic, showing us how hard it is for travellers to have the sensory experiences that they seek, Pessoa and Chesterton are interested in the ethical. They study why travellers can’t truly connect to other human beings. During my Paris wanderings, I would stare at people, intently inspecting their clothing, their demeanor, their interactions. I was trying to see the Frenchness in the French people around me. This is not a way to make friends.

Pessoa said that he knew only one “real traveller with soul”: an office boy who obsessively collected brochures, tore maps out of newspapers, and memorized train schedules between far-flung destinations. The boy could recount sailing routes around the world, but he had never left Lisbon. Chesterton also approved of such stationary travellers. He wrote that there was “something touching and even tragic” about “the thoughtless tourist, who might have stayed at home loving Laplanders, embracing Chinamen, and clasping Patagonians to his heart in Hampstead or Surbiton, but for his blind and suicidal impulse to go and see what they looked like.”

The problem was not with other places, or with the man wanting to see them, but with travel’s dehumanizing effect, which thrust him among people to whom he was forced to relate as a spectator. Chesterton believed that loving what is distant in the proper fashion—namely, from a distance—enabled a more universal connection. When the man in Hampstead thought of foreigners “in the abstract . . . as those who labour and love their children and die, he was thinking the fundamental truth about them.” “The human bond that he feels at home is not an illusion,” Chesterton wrote. “It is rather an inner reality.” Travel prevents us from feeling the presence of those we have travelled such great distances to be near.

The single most important fact about tourism is this: we already know what we will be like when we return. A vacation is not like immigrating to a foreign country, or matriculating at a university, or starting a new job, or falling in love. We embark on those pursuits with the trepidation of one who enters a tunnel not knowing who she will be when she walks out. The traveller departs confident that she will come back with the same basic interests, political beliefs, and living arrangements. Travel is a boomerang. It drops you right where you started.

If you think that this doesn’t apply to you—that your own travels are magical and profound, with effects that deepen your values, expand your horizons, render you a true citizen of the globe, and so on—note that this phenomenon can’t be assessed first-personally. Pessoa, Chesterton, Percy, and Emerson were all aware that travellers tell themselves they’ve changed, but you can’t rely on introspection to detect a delusion. So cast your mind, instead, to any friends who are soon to set off on summer adventures. In what condition do you expect to find them when they return? They may speak of their travel as though it were transformative, a “once in a lifetime” experience, but will you be able to notice a difference in their behavior, their beliefs, their moral compass? Will there be any difference at all?

Travel is fun, so it is not mysterious that we like it. What is mysterious is why we imbue it with a vast significance, an aura of virtue. If a vacation is merely the pursuit of unchanging change, an embrace of nothing, why insist on its meaning?

One is forced to conclude that maybe it isn’t so easy to do nothing—and this suggests a solution to the puzzle. Imagine how your life would look if you discovered that you would never again travel. If you aren’t planning a major life change, the prospect looms, terrifyingly, as “More and more of this , and then I die.” Travel splits this expanse of time into the chunk that happens before the trip, and the chunk that happens after it, obscuring from view the certainty of annihilation. And it does so in the cleverest possible way: by giving you a foretaste of it. You don’t like to think about the fact that someday you will do nothing and be nobody. You will only allow yourself to preview this experience when you can disguise it in a narrative about how you are doing many exciting and edifying things: you are experiencing, you are connecting, you are being transformed, and you have the trinkets and photos to prove it.

Socrates said that philosophy is a preparation for death. For everyone else, there’s travel. ♦

Question-  Describe the advantages and disadvantages of tourism in the modern world .

Essay 1- 

In a time when globalization is sweeping the entire ecosystem, tourism has a crucial responsibility for developing global economies and nations. Nowadays, tourism is what makes widespread economic contributions to all countries, although there are a few negatives as well. This essay talks about the advantages and disadvantages of tourism before concluding with a final opinion. 

The biggest benefits of tourism are quite obvious, i.e., boosting the national GDP and economy and creating more employment for local citizens and communities. Tourists use diverse solutions while traveling, including booking hotels, flights, transportation, and guides. They also require food, shopping, and leisure while indulging in a wide gamut of other activities. This leads to extra income for thousands, which contributes handsomely to the country's economy. Tourism increases the GDP significantly and helps create more employment opportunities. People are always needed as tour guides, operators, booking agents, hotel and restaurant staff, transportation personnel, etc. Tourism thus has huge benefits to bring to the table for any country and its local population. 

Yet, there are some negatives of tourism as well. This includes the rampant damage of several well-known destinations and increased crime or illegal activities. The huge number of tourists thronging popular cultural and historical landmarks and monuments and other centers of pilgrimage lead to major structural and environmental damage. Along with this aspect, national resources are often overused and overexploited for handling this rush of tourists. At the same time, tourists bring their jewelry, money, and other expensive items, becoming targets for anti-social criminals and thieves, leading to a growth in illegal activities and crime. Hence, tourism has some disadvantages as well. However, the Government can take proactive steps to eliminate the same by providing more security and policing while maintaining popular monuments, tourist spots, and natural resources alike. 

To conclude, it can be said that while tourism does have specific disadvantages, it has a positive impact on livelihood, national economies, and overall employment. It also fosters cultural exchange, information gathering, and educational growth. Hence, while Governments may fix the negatives with proactive measures, the positives far outweigh them, in my opinion. (370 words)

IELTS IDIOMS GUIDE

Tourism has witnessed rapid development over several decades, becoming a major industry worldwide. The global tourism sector is responsible for generating a major percentage of economic wealth for several countries. Most developing economies are also hugely dependent upon tourism for earning national income and the smooth operation of several business sectors and industries, along with maintaining their levels of employment generation. Yet, like every other sector and institution, tourism will always have some advantages and disadvantages. Hence, in this article, we will discuss the pros and cons of tourism in detail to have a balanced insight. 

The growth and development of global tourism naturally bring myriad benefits to entire cities, countries, and communities alike. Tourism is one of the biggest foreign exchange sources and boosts the monetary positions of countries by adding to their economy and GPD alike. Whenever tourists visit any other country, they usually use various services and products that enable industries such as hotels and hospitality, airlines, transportation, leisure, food and beverages, souvenirs, apparel, and more. Other benefits of tourism include better relationships and political equations amongst nations, easier travel regulations, and inter-cultural and socio-economic exchange, which fosters better understanding, knowledge, and education overall. Heritage is also promoted and understood by every country at a global level. 

However, there are several disadvantages of tourism as well. Growth in tourism means a higher chance of illegal activities and crime, especially theft, since tourists bring valuables in their wake. Secondly, foreign tourists often damage and vandalize places of national interest and importance. They often litter areas while damaging natural resources and beautiful spots simultaneously. They are often ignorant about social and legal conventions in foreign countries and end up violating the same in some situations. Tourism also opens up avenues for illegal migration and trading illegal items at times. However, despite all these disadvantages, I firmly believe that the advantages surpass them in every sense of the term. (339 words)

In conclusion, tourism undeniably plays a critical role in the global economy and cultural exchange, offering substantial benefits such as economic growth, cultural preservation, and international understanding. However, it also poses challenges including environmental impact, cultural commodification, and economic dependence. Balancing these advantages and disadvantages requires sustainable and responsible tourism practices that respect local cultures, protect natural environments, and promote equitable economic benefits. As the world continues to become increasingly interconnected, understanding and addressing the complexities of tourism is essential for preserving its positive impacts while mitigating its negative effects. This nuanced approach to tourism, embracing both its benefits and challenges, is key to ensuring that it remains a positive force in our global society. Read More About IELTS:

Sustainable Tourism and Market Economy Argumentative Essay

Introduction, values and ethics of sustainable tourism, mass tourism, market economics, market failure, tourism impacts, works cited.

As socio-environmental and economic consequences of tourism persist, there has been increasing need for the tourism industry to adopt sustainable approaches in its management of protected areas.

Sustainable tourism refers to putting in place measures that ensure that tourism activities have low impact on the region’s environment, economy as well as the local culture while generating economic benefits to the people (Mowforth and Munt 17).

It aims at providing positive experience to tourism firms, the local people as well as the tourists themselves. They also come to understand the local culture as well as the significance of conserving tourism resources.

Business management approaches have continued to dominate tourism institutionally as well as philosophically (Hall and Lew 199). The study therefore is built on market-driven approaches and strategies based on socio-environmental as well as economic strategies aimed at achieving financial sustainability.

Sustainable tourism advocates for inclusive and sustainable community commitment. Tourism development has to involve the community that is seeking to achieve positive benefits from tourism.

Sustainable tourism takes into account the Whole Place Development theory which advocates for development of sustainable communities.

According to Billington, Carter and Husain (5) Whole Place Development refers to the dynamic process of creating public as well as private spaces by utilizing the input of the stakeholders who are the community to develop a desirable place with good living environment where the community is able to sustain itself and prosper.

Whole development helps utilize community partnerships in harnessing strategies, finance, science as well as narratives and cultures in creating socially and economically attractive, vibrant and efficient tourist destinations.

Sustainable tourism also involves balancing economic, environmental as well as social goals of tourism. This should include imposing limits and restrictions on specific tourist activities. There should be limits which are formally accepted by key stakeholders.

In addition, the carrying capacity needs to be clearly defined. Stakeholders in tourism are also obligated to provide tourists with honest information about their destinations regarding travel, hospitality as well as stays.

It has to ensure partnerships as well as establishment of balanced cooperation between tourism providers and tourists in achieving sustainable tourism development plus equitable distribution of benefits.

It must aim at benefitting those who exploit tourism resources and those who neither exploit nor damage the environment in which they stay and earn a living from without direct involvement in tourism. The local communities should be able to share equitably the cultural, social as well as the economic benefits generated.

Tourism policies should be designed to help improve the standard of living of the local people. Socio-environmental concerns have to be effectively addressed as tourist operators and developers aim to attract tourists and increase revenues. Part of the revenue should be used to develop tourism resources.

Tourism infrastructure and activities have to be designed in a manner that helps protect and conserve the natural heritage. Finally, tourism has to promote mutual understanding as well as respect among societies and between people.

Mass tourism refers to the act of visiting tourist destinations with a large number of people at the same time. It is therefore important to understand the impacts of a large number of visitors on a particular destination or over-exposure of a destination to a single group of tourists.

Tourism operators usually construct physical facilities based on the mental images of the physical appearance of tourist destinations and also tailor images according to what they think consumers need. In most cases, the desired image of the physical facilities influences the services and activities offered.

This could in turn consistently attract a specific group of tourists. Mass tourism is encouraged by technological developments especially in the transport sector and other tourism facilities.

According to Weaver (57) mass tourism is likely to minimize tourist interaction with the local people.

On the contrary sustainable tourism aims at achieving places where tourists and the local community are able to involve in socio-cultural exchange. Meaningful spaces help create positive interactions between the community and tourists.

Tourist operators should also define the limit of social, economic as well as ecological usage of resources to avoid adverse mass tourism impacts. The aspect of carrying capacity is very important and helps define mass tourism.

An increase in the level of mass tourism without adequate control measures put in place could damage the natural environment and the habitats for wildlife thereby interfering with the future capacity of the region to attract tourist.

For mass tourism in natural environments, the tourist operators have to provide a certain timeframe which is enough for recovery. Mitigation measures should be put in place to help avoid or recover from environmental damages attributed to mass tourism.

Market economics refers to a situation where economic decisions as well as prices of goods and services are less controlled by the government but are instead left to be determined by the interactions of citizens and businesses (Dwyer, Forsyth and Dwyer 21).

Under market economy, it is assumed that market forces like supply and demand best determine the country’s well-being. The government therefore less engages in intervention measures like price fixing, industry subsidizations as well as license quotas.

In tourism, market access and economics ensures that the tourism management works hand in hand with the regional destination management units as well as key stakeholders in order to ensure that the industry maximizes global and domestic transport systems to the tourism resources (Bull 64).

They also have to consider accommodation and intermediaries as key components of tourism (Sinclair & Stabler 59). According to market economics, tourism supply should consider the level and nature of inter-firm as well as inter-sector competition and the resulting consequences on the consumer welfare.

In market economies, suppliers who are the management of tourism firms, determine the prices for tourism services and products.

The prices charged and output decisions of a firm has no significant effect on another since they may offer different quality using varied approaches to conserve and develop the resources and facilities.

According to Hunt (7) if the community that aims to benefit from tourism builds the place to give it its own identity, character as well as community presence, so as to achieve sustainable tourism, tourists will be attracted and it will in turn benefit the community and the region.

Bergstrom (11) states that increasing the quality of the tourism resource, experiences and facilities by applying the whole place development strategy highly determines the quality of tourists who visit the place.

This calls for careful planning as well as cooperation with the local community, tourism developers together with heritage managers to further direct tourist traffic to preferred areas taking consideration of the desired number.

This ensures that tourists receive satisfactory experience giving the destination its identity and the income it desires while ensuring community satisfaction.

According to market economics approach, tourism organizations have to operate to ensure that supply and demand meet economies of scale both in terms of financial and socio-environmental sustainability (Sinclair and Stabler 82).

Tourism organizations have to put in place economic indicators as well as measures that mitigate risk factors in the sector.

In market economies where the tourism sector is unregulated, funding for research and developments in the sector might prove to be a great challenge.

In such situations therefore, tourism firms including protected areas have to depend on revenues from products and services to reinvest in conservation activities (Sinclair & Stabler 65).

Inadequate protection and conservation of wildlife and other protected areas could certainly lead to degradation of natural as well as social capital. Depletion of economic, social as well as natural capital often causes externalization costs to the general public (Cohen and Winn 42).

Players as well as societies in market economies may sometimes underestimate natural capital since they are not wholly aware of the actual cost of its degradation. This makes them less capacitated to make informed choices.

Cohen and Winn (42) assert that as opposed to the economic theory, most firms including tourist organizations are not perfect optimizers. As such they do not prioritize resource allocation since they take important business activities and aspects as usual.

Tourists who visit a place are normally attracted by the image of the area environment. The quality of the environment greatly determines the success of tourism of a place. Sustainable tourist development therefore requires commitment by all the stakeholders involved to protect and improve the environment.

However, it should be noted that tourism development could have impacts on the environment. The impacts could either be positive or negative. Tourism impacts are therefore the consequence of tourism activities which can be both negative and positive.

Economically, tourism earns revenue to the community and country as a whole and also creates jobs for the local people.

According to Weaver (46) alternative tourists generally spend money especially on more locally owned as well as operated facilities across a wider region. This means that wealth generated from tourism expenditure spread throughout the tourist destination.

According to Stynes (4) part of the money that tourists spend while receiving services and also on goods leak out of the area to cover for the cost of goods imported to carter for the needs of the residents and the tourists themselves.

Sustainable tourism also plans the needs of both the tourists and the community simultaneously. It improves the community’s qualities which include functionality, aesthetics as well as overall reputation benefits.

Tourism therefore helps the community acquire social amenities, safety, reliable transportation as well as proper waste management for satisfaction of both the residents and the tourists thus improving the quality of life of the residents (Billington, Carter and Husain 8).

The quality of life determines the residents’ civic participation in tourism activities as well as their level of satisfaction.

Conversely, tourism often makes it necessary to import most of the tourists’ requirements meaning that much money has to leave the country. In addition, overseas investors who finance some of the tourist facilities also export their profits to their countries.

Tourism developers also require the government to improve infrastructure and to provide specific financial advantages to tourist organizations which makes tourism costly for the country.

Tourism could also create long-term social impacts in tourism development. Tourists come from diverse societies with different cultural values and lifestyles and since they come seeking pleasure, they usually spend much money and always behave in ways not even acceptable in their own societies (Crandall 236).

The local people may be tempted to behave the same way as the tourists. Perhaps the most affected by tourism impacts is the natural environment. Tourism developers often prefer to build tourist facilities on the coast, where the facility will be close to a beach or may a coral reef (UNEP Islands 8).

However, the coast is very fragile and vulnerable. This could lead to environmental vs. economic conflict or conflict between uses. In general, tourism projects not carefully planned and managed could lead to significant damage to the natural environment. It could also create serious pollution to the environment.

On the other hand, developing transport infrastructure could help open up remote areas and increase convenience of travel across the country.

Sustainable tourism needs to consider and balance various aspects of the business including the environment, social and economic aspects. It has to balance the aspects of market economies with environmental and social sustainability in order to achieve sustainable economic and socio-environment gains from tourism.

It helps to do support for the protection of the animate being and Marine Parkss through entryway charges and usher fees. By making alternate beginnings of employment, touristry reduces many jobs like over-fishing and deforestation. Here are some positive environmental impacts of touristry,

Tourism poses a menace to natural and cultural resources, like H2O supply, beaches, coral reefs and heritage sites. It causes increased pollution through traffic emanations, littering, increased sewerage production and noise. Although touristry can interrupt ecosystem and environment, and touristry can besides be the really drift for good landscape otherwise vulnerable to industrial development.

Culture is the main affair of touristry and sing unusual civilizations can be educational ; and profitable for the community, but touristry is a needfully invasive procedure that thrusts traditional communities into modern universe, handling their distinguishable life styles and cultural merchandises.

Tourism is for net income because it is its primary intent. so it the local regional country. But the fiscal load shouldered by a community to construct and keep the touristry industry is a consideration. Tourism development besides opens communities to advancement by seaward corporations supplying services to tourers, funneling the biggest net incomes from locals.

Successful touristry relies on set uping a basic substructure, such as roads, visitant centres and hotels. The cost of this normally falls on the authorities, so it has to come out of revenue enhancement grosss. Jobs created by touristry are frequently seasonal and ailing paid, yet touristry can force up local belongings monetary values and the cost of goods and services.

But they besides pollute their environment and destruct it. So the local hosts draw their attending to alone natural resources in the country. They affect the tourers by giving them consciousness of their civilization and manner of life.

In today’s world, one of the biggest industries in existence is tourism. This industry is a major contributor of revenues to the country that has the tourist attraction. This industry is said to generate a lot of revenue in a country and also contribute to lessening the effects of unemployment. In developing nations, like those of Asia and Africa, tourism plays a very important role in national and regional growth. Therefore, many efforts from the government and the private sector are ensuring that this industry thrives because of its benefits. Nonetheless, the various developments made and benefits mentioned above do not imply that this industry has no negative effects during its operation. The negative impacts on culture of the host countries and societies have been far and wide. These cultural impacts of tourism are the things that are negative to the communities hosting tourists when they come into contact with the industry and the tourist they serve (Richards & Hall, 2002). These consequences often come up when the industry is responsible for the altering of behavior, value systems and the way of life of the community where the tourist attractions are. It can be seen that tourism brings about adverse negative effects to these societies in ways such as change or loss of identity and values which are “indigenous” to the people of a certain region (UNEP, 2015). There are also various ethical issues like crime and other vices that are associated with tourism and finally the clash of classes. Tourism, even though beneficial to the society, has a number of ethical issues that are associated with it especially in the tourist destination sites. One such ethical issue is crime generation which is common in regions where there are many tourist attractions. Tourism brings about massive growth and urbanization of an area. This attracts many people which results to high levels of crime. Another factor that makes crime thrive is the factor that tourists possess lots of money and other expensive goods such as jewelry and electronic gadgets. This is a very attractive venture for criminals and gangs as tourists make “easy targets” (Hall, & Brown, 2006). For instance, in a tourist destination like Rio de Janeiro, the beaches in which many hotels are situated are in close proximity with the slums and this increases the risk of tourists being exposed to various crimes and even being victims. In many tourist prone areas, instances of drug dealing and abuse are higher than in other regions. This is because the tourists offer a ready market for the vice. Prostitution and sex tourism is a prevalent issue when it comes to discussing the effects of tourism to the society. It can be seen that these practices are greatly encouraged by tourism (Harrison, 1994). As tourism continues to witness high levels of growth worldwide, so has sexual exploitation of children and young women. As tourism grew, many shifted from their regions to urban centers where the hotels are and “engaged in prostitution” (Harrison, 1994). It is important to note that the causal factor of prostitution is not tourism but it “offers an easy way to be involved in the vice” (Harrison, 1994). Many young men and women “sell their bodies” for money or goods of value (Anders, et al 1999). One of the ways in which tourism contributes to the loss of culture and changes in indigenous values is through commodification. This massively leads to the massive loss or change of “native values and uniqueness” of a region (KOKKINOS, &KAPARDIS, 2014).Through various influences, the industry has largely contributed to the altering of values and individuality of the host communities. The communities in which these tourist attractions are, have various customary rituals, rreligion and of festivals that form their culture and define their way of life. However, the tourism industry has led to the fabrication of these practices so that they can be packaged for the tourists and thereby giving in to the demands of the tourists instead of leading their customary way of life (UNEP, 2015). This leads to a state known as “reconstructed ethnicity” which is the diminution and sanitization of various practices so that they can be the same as the expectations of the tourists (UNEP, 2015). When these tourist destinations are sold as a product, the demand for souvenirs, entertainment and other art forms exerts pressure on the human values leading to change and eventually loss. Commodification also contributes the loss of sanctity of sites or objects which have religious significance to the communities that host the tourists (UNEP, 2015). In order to meet the desires of the tourists and thus retain them, communities are facing massive commodification of their cultures. Another negative cultural effect of tourism is standardization. It can be seen that various regions in the world have different cultures, facilities and even food and drinks they consume. However, there is massive pressure on this diverse tourist attraction sites to satisfy the desire of visitors for “common amenities” (UNEP, 2015). Thereby, these sites lose their individual cultures and way of life in order to meet the wants of the tourists they host. Thereby we end up having sites that have the same facilities and things to offer globally. Even though tourists go to these sites looking for new adventures to explore, aspects such as accommodation, foods and drinks are always prone to standardization. For instance, tourists may look for familiar hotel chains or restaurants in the new environments they are in. As a result, the tourist sites may be forced to incorporate these “familiar features” leading to cultural identity and value loss (Tosun, 2002). Tourism may also bring about the clash of cultures in the regions that have tourist activities taking place. The tourism industry is making it easy for people to meet easily. People from different parts of the world with different cultures are meeting and this can lead to the clash of cultures. This is due to the “cultural differences” that are present in the cultures of various people (Látková & Vogt, 2012). There are various aspects in culture which may differ between the host communities and the visitors that come to their land to see various tourist attractions that are in offer. Each, the host and the visitor, have different economic statuses and religions. This may lead to the clashes between these two cultures. Sometimes, tourists are seen as a nuisance and their influx leads to the discomfort of the locals. For instance, they bring about vices like alcoholism and drug use, congestion and even an increase in crime (Simm, 2016). Therefore, tourists and the host communities may not co-exist in any way and thus the practices of one group may be seen as a violation of the other’s cultural practices. Tourists may be tolerated for a while for they bring economic growth but this tolerance may be short-lived. In conclusion, from the text above we see that tourism is a major boost to the economic growth of a region and even the country as a whole. Despite this, it is evident that this industry is also becoming a problem to the cultures and the way of life of the people who host the industry (Chafey et al., 2012). The cultures and the institutions that are indigenous to the people are being eroded so as to conform to the needs of the tourism industry. This is leading to the loss of important cultural items and the commodification of a people’s way of life. There are also the issues of cultural clashes that occur when people of diverse cultures meet. This has been made very easy by tourism. There are also ethical issues that are linked to tourism like the rise of child prostitution, drug abuse and trafficking and even the rise in crimes that occur in a region due to the influx of tourism. Therefore, it is important for communities in areas that host tourists to come up with long lasting solutions that they can use to tackle the various impacts mentioned above.
