Everything has its positive and negative sites and the tourist industry does the same .However , I mean it has more advantages than disadvatages .Tourism is one of the leading industries nowadays .And travelling seems to be the most favourable hobby now .
The tourist industry is a good way to develope more intercultural communication among many ethnics in the same country or between different countries .Intercultural communication helps all cultures in the world closer to each other .Each one could intergrate into the global culture to remain and go on .
The tourist industry also promotes other industries develope such as airline , food production ...
The most important advatage , I think , is that it is a
NON-SMOKE industry .

In what way though? I can only see it's more good than harmful. What's a specific area of harm are we talking here?

Tourist industry itself has harm too . I can give you a typical example. Everyone surely still remember 11/9 event. In that two -fated -planes, terroists disguised as normal toourists to terror, it is the best way for terrorists if the tourist industry doesn't check carefully.

Tourist is a big industry that can provide many jobs and increase income for the country. If you are good in investment you can have big profit form tourist business. But it require many conditions such as climate, geography, infrastructure.While climate and geography depent on natural , Infrastructure relys on human being. Clearly to gain the profit you must be creative, wise, determinate and have management skill to solve the hardest thing such as polluted environment. It is very good if we do tourist and don't care about environment. Obviously if you gain this thing you must sacrifice another thing but it is worth or not depends on your brain.

Yeah,I completely agree with this view.In addtion,I should point out that when you are investing a new sight seeing,you should first think about the environment.Don't pollute it!As some examples in our country,please don't treat it as skeletons in the cuboard,it is a fact that some of our famous have been over developed,such as to have built too many hotels near the mountains,dig artificial streams and so on.That sorts of work may destroy the ambience of the whole sight which will hardly be recovered.

Don't pollute it


Indeed. Polluted environment is really a pressing problem nowadays.Tourrism is one of main reasons that cause pollution.Each country should tightly control tourists to ensure they don't cause pollution in that country.

Tourist is a big industry that have advantages and disadvantages. But in my opinion, The tourist industry does more harm than good for two reasons. First, many people in the world has smoking. They travel to another contry and they keep smoking despite it is harmful to public health. Second, nowadays, there are many serious diseases in the world. For example,AIDS, Malaria,flu pandemic h1n1... that we caught it from traveller

The tourism industry has advantages and disadvantages, but it does more harm than good.Firstly, the quick developing speed of this field can cause the environmental destruction. Tourists cause environmental damage through forest fires, destruction of the natural lanscape and pollution. They want to build hotels, restaurants for their business, create resorts and super markets.Therefore, the natural environment would be threaten.Secondly, too much tourism can kill the culture. Visistors are from many countries and bring their culture as film,food,fashion,… They bring the bad influence to the community which is not conformity with the local custom .These things can be worse off traditional culture . Finally, the tourism industry is an extremely profitable process in loads of countries, especially those in which the process of development continue to depend on this industry because this industry does not require a lot of literacy and also it yields maximum profits with less investment. In short, everything has two faces and the tourism industry is not except so it need make good.
