Topic: International travel is becoming cheaper and cheaper, and more countries are now opening their doors to foreign visitors. Do you think that the advantages of this trend outweigh the disadvantages?


Nowadays travelling to a foreign country is so convenient as travel costs is more affordable and countries are opening their gates to welcome foreign tourists. From my personal perspective, although this trend has some negative sides, they would be outweighed by a myriad of benefits.

One of the downsides of international travel is the concern about the transmission of airborne diseases which can result in pandemics. Take the outbreak of coronavirus as an example. Initially the COVID-19 cases were only restricted to the city of Wuhan in China. Having no precautions for this illness, other countries do not close their borders and for the next three months, travelers have rapidly spread this deadly virus, causing thousands of fatalities worldwide. Therefore, opening doors for tourists in this case is not an optimal choice for national leaders.

On the other side, however, I believe that international tourism has numerous advantages. First and foremost, it is an important pillar of the economic development of the host country. The more holidaymakers attracted, the more fund from them would be collected to uplift the income of the tourism sector in particular and the whole nation in general. What is more, the growth of tourism helps to solve the unemployment problem in local regions. For example, tourism may provide job opportunities for local residents to work in hotels or restaurants. Moreover, their houses can be converted into hostels to provide accommodations to visitors, which would generate income for the hosts. Hardly could they earn a living without the promotion of tourism.

On the grand scheme of things, I believe that the benefits of international tourism, regarding the wealth of local economy and the decline of unemployed citizens, do overshadow the disadvantages. From my point of view, countries all over the world should concentrate on promoting the country images to attract more tourists and set tourism as a key industry.

Vocabulary "Myriad" = so many that you cannot possibly enumerate or count them. I doubt that you could name more than 25 unique benefits of tourism.


Example: In springtime, a myriad of blossoms cover the hills.
