Tourists visiting different countries has many advantages like more business opportunities and influenced knowledge about their country. It has also affected us negatively by causing cultural clashes as they would not respect the local traditions, refuse to follow local dress standards, get drunk in public, or behave rudely or inappropriately towards locals. <div>
International tourism would have affected many countries negatively but the positive influence by them has eventually supported many different countries with more business opportunities like tourism industry and created an incentive for the locals and government for investment in infrastructure such as roads, rail networks, and local medical and education facilities. For an example, if u ever visit a country, while discovering, u will be provided with some business deals and investment ideas offered by the locals and agents.
This helps the economy of the country to grow and develop alongside profiting the investor aka the tourist. This helps the countries citizen’s to be motivated and devote their time in improving their business and collaborating with the tourists which overall increases the countries standard of living, moreover has a very big impact on its reputation directly mirroring about the country.
Taking everything into consideration I believe that, international tourism has improvised high levels of improvement in many countries for varying reasons which has helped them showcase their country’s attractions to people all around the world.

On the other hand, Tourists from around the world can cause some problems for the environment and the places. one of the issues is that not all visitors have the same culture, not all people can maintain a respected attitude towards tourists places. in a way, some could ruin historic places or gardens, and another problem is that some countries had to deal with diseases which were brought by visitors, and that could be a big problem for a developing country to cure.
In Conclusion, Even though countries can be worried about welcoming tourists. It ultimately has more positive results for the long run and it may be the reason for improving a developing country.

International tourism, a bullish industry in modern times has undoubtedly benefited countries and its people. However it does have certain disadvantages which may outweigh the prosperity that it had created. This essay will discuss and assess if the disadvantages really outweigh the advantages it has created
On the bright side, tourism has definitely invited more focus on the infrastructure development of the localities which were otherwise not focused much on. Considering the revenue this industry has generated, the authorities have realized the need for uplifting the facilities such as quality roads, public transportation, un-interrupted power supply and other needs of the travelers. For instance, a recent study shows that spike in number of tourists visiting Masinagudi village in remote Tamilnadu has brought in the govt’s attention to announce new infrastructure schemes to build roads and continuous power supply to support tourism
On the darker side, increase in tourism has caused over-usage of natural resources and has spiked up the pollution levels massively. Growing demand has caused depletion of natural resources such as ground water levels in the region has inflated the cost of living for the local population. For example, surge in no of tourists in Hampi area of Karnataka has depleted the ground water level which in-turn has created a need to transport water from other parts of the state, the cost of which is borne by the local community through introduction of a new water tax
To conclude, despite the disadvantages the industry has brought, I strongly believe the advantages outweigh the disadvantages looking at the upbringing of the infrastructure and the stability it has brought to the region.
