Understanding of the World of Tourism
The definition of tourism can be written as the social, economic and cultural meet up of two
different states. People move out their nation culture and interact with extremely new one. These
people are called as tourists. Another statement says tourism means to travel 80 kilo meter from
your own habitat to some other destination for at least for a day. This can be of many purposes
leisure, business and others. Tourism in any country based on its infrastructure, imports and
exports and its natural beauties. Tourism has a great impact on economy of any country.
(Camilleri, 2018) It also provides an image of security and beauty of a country. Tourism industry
requires a lot of flexibility because you have to adapt the new environment, also for the citizen
they have to be humble to the customer and ensure its safety. With patience they have to
understand the tourist and show great hospitality. (Barros & Alves, 2004)
Just because tourism is becoming one of the high earning businesses now a day, a separate study
is introduced to make improvement. Contempary tourism is a study where new and international
approaches of tourism can be discussed. It is underrated globally, even though have huge
importance. But now with time it is gaining its actual worth. In this group of people observes the
changing of demands and desires of tourist from time to time. They look into the matter to
country increasing o deceasing rates of income in tourism business. (Cohen, 2008) As the world
is changing fast, so are their likes and dislikes and their opinion bout he destinations. People are
attracted towards delicious cuisines, infra and marketing stop of the country. But still now a day
tourist wanted to see natural and peaceful views of mountains, seas and beaches. The team also
highlights the safety procedure of the tourists; it is the major factor in tourism (et al Urry, 1994).
Customers never compromise on their safety and who will? Secondly, comes the health issues,
danger of any chronic diseases and hygiene issues reduces the rates of tourists in the country.
The tourism system includes the production and output along with the experience other tourists
have. These studies have four fundamental factors and are also called by the name geographical
system of tourism. These factors are source region, transit route, destination region, the
environment that surrounds the other three regions. The system is important as it contacts the
source region to the final destination. However, because contemporary tourism experiences are
co-created by the consumer and the producer, another intriguing aspect of the geographical
tourism system model is that the customer will encounter different aspects of the tourism
industry at each stage of the system. (Edwards, Griffin, & Hayllar, 2008)
Tourism has it both pros and cons towards any nation. Every industry has a good part and a bad
one all along. First of all discussing the good impact of tourism industry in any country, tourism
is a great source of creating jobs and new opportunities of employment. A good tourism rate
encourages investors to build new setups in the country. Tourist is one of the largest sources of
income. People pay not only on the tickets but for all the places them visits (Fayissa, Nsiah, &
Tadasse, 2008). Restaurants, hotel and malls all collects tax which are later on given to the

government, helping in investing in the country more. Local and traditional cultural are separate
far and wide. Costumers after visiting a country get to know their food and local crafting. The
greater interest in the cuisines and crafting opens up different means exports. Natural destination
are preserved and money earn from tourism helps in maintain landscapes. Now, in contrast to
these advantages there are similar disadvantages. The jobs offered a new country are seasonal. In
order them to last relationship between both the countries must be stable, otherwise the dispute
affect the working place and even losing job. These money and taxes coming from the tourist are
spent on the big companies and restaurants. Local areas have no benefit of these tourists (Ivanov
& Webster, 2007). Like tourists are impressed by the culture, citizens are also affected by the
new culture of costumers. Increasing number of tourist coming in the country lost its now culture
and traditions like UAE. People belonging to different culture and practicing different traditions
lives there, it doesn’t have its own culture. More customers moving in a country increases its
population meaning it will need more maintain. Traffic jams and crowds will increase making it
a busy and noise place (Du, Lew, & Ng, 2016).
It entails activities of tourist have potential to harm the environment, destroying the beauty it has.
Consequences like these are mainly witnessed in the construction of general infrastructure like
roads and airports, as well as tourism facilities like resorts, hotels, restaurants, shops, golf
courses, and marinas (Buckley, 2011). Government and authorities needs to focus on these
factors as well causes they are the main reason of tourist and if the infra or its natural beauties
are harmed, it will majorly affect the tourism business. People will no longer find it attractive.
They've enhanced environmental planning and management. The advantages to natural regions
can be increased by good environmental management of tourism infrastructure, particularly
hotels (et al Smith, 1990). The most useful tools for minimizing the environmental impact of
tourism facilities are cleaner production approaches while developing and operating them. Forest
fires, erosions and natural disaster are also often caused by high population growth. Forests are
cut down and animals lost their habitats. Not only this, seas are polluted and underwater lives are
damaged, all the smokes and fumes from never stopping cars and vehicles and factories causes
air pollution and ozone damaged. What is required that tourism should not stop because if
people see what is important there they will try to protect it from destruction this will promote
responsible travel. Which means to travel by car or train or sea rather than air planes? Yes, yes it
does (et al Tisdell, 1987).
Social and cultural values mean a lot to a country. It differentiates it from others. These tradition
and customs are reflects the past history of a nation and their ancestors. Coming to the social
effect of tourist, obviously companies of others have a great influence of you too (Katsoni &
Stratigea, 2016). Disusing the advantage first, tourists visits and are impressed by the traditions
and adapt them. They tell their friends and family about it and post it on social media, and over
time it is praised by many in the world. due to tourists people are get closer and closer knowing a
lot about each other’s which is a good thing but they are also adapting the cultures and traditions
of others That one factor which differentiates countries is fading. There are thousands of

examples of this change. Countries with high rates of tourism are now just a mixture of all
cultural but do not have its own identity. Humans are losing our identity in favor of a sense of
'global being,' in which we are becoming more and more alike than ever before. Another
disadvantage is tourism increases crime rates and destruction of heritage. (Cohen, 1988)
Even after all the damages and disadvantages are faced due to tourism, it’s never going to stop
and it should be. Because I order to maintain peace and harmony in the world it is very important
to know each other’s behavior and way of communication. Communication gaps are the
highlighted reason of war after power. It our duty to make sure not let any other culture get
influence on ours, it includes the traditional festivals, clothing, way of speaking and languages
(Leong, 1989). Strict laws and authorities regulations, health awareness and social interaction are
essential and after the pandemic it’s a must. Although covid-19 created a great set back in the
business of travel but it back on as usual but with cautions. Tour operator should be well trained
and responsible so they make sure the safety and health of customers and guide them all about
the history, tradition and culture of country. (Burkart & Medlik, 1981)
