Some people say that tourism is a great way to see the world, whereas others say that it is dangerous for the towns that tourists visit.

I think that tourism is not that as dangerous as it might seem. First of all, tourists spend a lot of money in the places they visit. In some towns tourists even have to pay fees to enter. All this money goes to develop the places and fix the damage caused by tourists. Second, tourists are as a rule cultural people that do not usually destroy everything around.

At the same time there are people who say that tourism annihilates everything it comes in contact with. Thousands of tourists have visited Venice, Italy resent years and it needs a serious renovation after that.

Well, people will always leave a trace of their visitings, nevertheless, they pay for this and the places that are visited by many tourist become even better. There are a lot of towns that can not survive without tourism. If tourists, for some reason, stop going there, the towns turn into ruins.

In conclusion, I would like to say that everything has its side effects and tourism is not an exception. No one can stop people from visiting tourist places because of some minor damages tourists might cause. Thustaking into consideration the big financial support tourists give, I strongly believe that increasing the tourist flow creates more good than bad for the places. 


In conclusionI would like to say that there are opposing views on this issue. At first sight tourism might seem destructive but in actual factit invests a lot of money into the economy of those places.  Thus, I strongly believe that increasing the tourist flow brings a lot of benefits for the places.
