Some people believe the benefits of tourism outweigh the problems it creates in a particular place. Discuss both views and give your own opinion.

These days, with the growth of tourism, more and more people are concerned about its pros and cons. Some people hold the view that it plays a pivotal role in developing the area, while others point out that it brings about more negative effect on there. My view is that tourism bring us more good than harm.

First, with the increased tourism, it would boost economic development of that place by a large amount of money is brought in by the travellers. Moreover, thanks to the growth of tourism, there are more jobs for the local people. On the other hand, the tourism development also increases cost in that area. For example, at tourist destinations, prices aim at tourists so the services and the goods would be more expensive than at other destinations. Hence, the locals also suffer from these high prices. Besides, much of the work created is seasonal, in other words, the locals don’t have the job security.

It is also true that tourism plays a pivotal role in improving local infrastructure. For example, nowadays, more and more facilities are built to help tourists go through more pleasant experiences. Of course, these things also help to raise the living standard of the local population. At the same time, however, these activities make a damaging impact on the environment. Such as many pristine areas get overdeveloped and lose their natural beauty.

Another benefits of tourism is bringing in new types of attractions to that destination. To attract more notice, some new buildings were builts such as cafes, hotels and skyscrapers. Nonetheless, it also means that the local history and culture sometimes can be damaged and become very commercialized.

In conclusion, the benefits of tourism very clear - commercially good for an area. But, importantly, it must be done with care or it will turn into negative impact on the locals and also the area.


I would be so grateful for your response ^.^
