Q:

Why is tourism bad?

A:

According to the Green Hotels & Responsible Tourism Initiative, a negative effect of tourism is the strain it can put on the environment as well as native cultures in destination countries. Negative impacts of tourism are especially likely to occur in destinations that receive too many visitors.

The Green Hotels & Responsible Tourism Initiative states that particular environmental ill-effects from tourism include increases in pollution and waste and pressure on endangered species as well as natural resources. From a cultural perspective, tourism can be beneficial in preserving authentic communities but can also lead to the erosion of these communities' traditional values and ways of life.
