Positive Impacts
  • It is inevitable that tourism will have a major
    effect on the culture and society of an area.

    between different cultures.
  • Indeed many people deliberately choose to
    experience a culture very different to their own.

    seen as an enriching and educating one.
  • The benefits can be felt by the hosts and the

    pay local culture the necessary respect.
