Tourism is becoming increasingly important as a source of revenue to many countries but its disadvantages should not be overlooked. What are some of the problems of tourism?
Many countries are considered famous for Tourism. Money from tourism constitutes major part of their economy. Besides this there are numerous disadvantages which cannot be ignored.
One of the most important disadvantage is the damage to the tourist spots caused by the visitors. they also litter around these places. This repels other tourists and there will be lesser visitors in the future.
Some local thieves may rob valuables from the tourists like mobiles, cameras and cash. this increases the crime rate of the country.
Another concern is the health. Some tourists may bring with them various health problems some of which can be contagious. It will spread faster at tourist places as they are overly crowded.
Due to overcrowding, these places also become spot for terrorist attacks. this causes loss to both the tourists and the native country.
In spite of the disadvantages, countries like Dubai, Singapore, Mauritius, Hong Kong and Malaysia continue to attract tourists with their historic monuments, man made sculptures, buildings, towers and natural beauty. Easy transport costs makes it even more easy.
To conclude, all we can say is that such countries should develop tourism programs and policies for the safety of the country as well as the tourists.
