What is the benefit of tourism for local people? Well, tourism is now a hug contributor to the economies of most countries. Tourism industries can bring money, job vacancy and advancement especially to developing regions. However, this money often goes into the pockets of foreign investors, and only rarely benefit for local people.
Tourism industries will not give much benefit for local people if, for example multinational hotel chains don’t care about the surrounding nature when they are built new hotels. This can cause many social, culture and geographical problems. Some of local people may get job and money from that international hotel chain. However, in case of missing this opportunity, some of them still have their own environment.
Moreover, some facts show that tourists tend to go, visit, and spend their money in restaurant, bars, and even luxury hotels of those multinational chain. They less go to such as: restaurant, bar, hotel, shop which are owned by local people. This can prevent the local people’s business from becoming even larger.
Most important thing, tours or excursions of tourism have a little effect on nature. Event it can disrupt or destroy ecosystems and environments, and if it does, the local people will get the risk. So the local government policies should be put in place to ensure that tourism will make the benefit spreading widely. The policies should guarantee that tourism will not cause any harms to any local people or places.
