Cultural tourism, where people travel in order to visit museums, monuments and archaeological sites among other things, is a growing industry. Having so many visitors may sometimes benefit a nation’s cultural heritage, but can also cause problems.

To what extent do you agree or disagree with this statement?


Every year, millions of people travel to other countries for vacations spending billions of dollars. Tourists like to visit museums, monuments and archaeological. It is because the tourists can really understand the cultural heritage in the country.

With the amazing development in transportations, everyone get fly easily. The cheap air ticket brings happiness to many people. Visitors can enjoy their journey in a low prices. This cause many people travelling nowadays. As proverb goes “: every coin has its two sides,” cultural tourism brings benefits and weaknesses to the nation’s cultural heritage. In my part, I will say that the advantages are more impact to the countries than the weaknesses.  

First of all , I absolutely agree with the statement. Having many visitors can bring benefits and also can cause some problem. Cultural tourism let the visitors understand the local culture and know how to respect the local people and places. Next, tourism can develop country economy. It creates many jobs to the local labours and available the work in hotels, restaurants, travel businesses, taxis, entertainment centers resorts and others. Furthermore, tourism can lead to better environment. The government dedicate to reduce environment pollution.

On the other hand, many visitors also cause some problems. If too many visitors visit a place will cause traffic jam. Others, people working as waiters or cleaners do not receive a high salaries. However, the most important is that visitors can lead to problems such as alcohol or prostitution.

In conclusion, governments represent an important role. Because governments can reduce the problems cause from tourism. In my opinion, visitors should enjoy their travelling and visting a new places, but they should give the full respect to the local people and places.
