My hometown is a tourist city,so there are towns of people when the time of the right season.I mean it's cool to contact different people from afar,but sometimes it makes the quiet places into a dirty city and full of money and damage.What do you think?

Although there are bad things about tourism, we welcome tourists as they are a source of income for many people in some parts of my country. The beaches get dirty: true. But some people who live there would be poor if tourists didn`t come during the season. They rent rooms, feed people and grocery stores earn much more.

You are right,people there need that industry to make a living,everything just has pros and cons.So hope we have a conscious about protecting the environment.Thanks for share,marguicha.

I think that we can all try to minimise the problems of tourism while, at the same time, show our beautiful country to other people.

I live on an island and during the winter it is very quiet here. Very few tourists visit my island during the winter months. June, July and August are the high season and one week in July is especially popular among the tourists and that is the week when the annual music festival takes place. Thousands of people visit my island during the music festival. I almost don't recognize my island during that week because there are so many people everywhere. Many people don't like the many tourists, and it is true that the streets and the beach are very crowded and that the tourists leave a lot trash in the streets, but they also help the economy. The shop owners and restaurant owners love the tourists.
