The tourist industry is one of the necessary fields in our life. It has many good effects, but it also has some negative effects. Firstly, sometime it is dangerous especially when traveling by plane or train. Accident will lead to death of many people and effect to economy. Another bad effect is that it causes lots of fossil fuel while fossil fuel is less day by day. And until now we haven’t found other source energy to completely replace fossil fuel. Last but not least, the tourist industry makes environment polluted more quickly. The more people travel, the more vehicles use. This will release polluted air to the environment and cause some bad effects to the ozone layer. In short, the tourist industry is more harmful than people think.

Nowaday, tourism is becoming one of the most viable business markets in the world. So, the tourist industry has both negative and positive but i think it brings more advantages than disadvantages. For example, the tourist industry encompasses many different areas, so it also creates jobs in many different areas. With tourism comes hotel, restaurants, tour companies, service station, souvenier shops, sports equipment rental, and much more. All of this creates many different levels of employment for people. Futhermore, it creates employment, brings about economic growth and development and earns a significant amount of foreign dollar for the economy.
Besides, air travel, car travel, and other aspects of tourism are adding to the planet's pollution and this is becoming a impotant problem ..etc.. Sometimes foreigners act with no respects to national traditions; ex: the behavior of European women in Eastern countries, They bring the bad influence to the community which is not conformity with the local custom.
Everything always has two sides: good and bad point and tourism does the same. To my way of thinking tourism...

The tourist industry plays an important role in developing each country’s economic. However, it has produced harm for our life. Firstly, our environment is being polluted. The visitors always move by means of transport, such as car, train, ship, aero plane, etc. Exhaust fumes from vehicles cause a great deal of damage to the environment. Secondly, price of many products is increased. Sometimes, the growth of the quantity of visitors makes consumerism jump. For example, the visitors spend their money for their tour. Some people think they deserve doing anything they want. They consume too many products, such as electricity, foods, drinks, etc. They waste too much energy, materials. When one of products is suddenly lacked, it is sure that the price of that product will go up. Thirdly, there are many advantages for people to do bad actions. For instance, some people have a chance to immigrate illegal due to traveling. They, even, disrupt the safety of society of the city like burglary, theft, robbery, murder. Finally, the tourist industry always has the danger potentially.

Nowadays, international tourism is the biggest industray in the world. In my opinion, the tourist industry has both advantages and disadvantages, but it does more good than harm. Firstly, the most obvious advantages is tourism is becoming a good source of revenue to many countries. Many people travel a lot yearly, so there are many benefits they bring to the area they travel. It is a huge amounts of money which contributes to the economic growth of an area.Another advantage ís giving the citizen of the area the chance to escape a poverty and has a higher living standard. And they have a chance to exchange culture. Tourism can creates understanding between people from different culture. In conclusion, I would say that I disagree with the argument The tourist industry does more harm than good. I love travel and I think the intourist industry does good.

Some people think the tourist industry does more than harm than good. While other don’t think so. In my opinion, tourist industry both advantages and disadvantages. Beside have many good effects, tourist also some harmful. Firstly, the effects of tourism on the environment. For example, environment can be polluted air, water, etc. tourism gives change climate. The Earth warm may be is one of main reasons that cause of tourism. Last but not least, tourism cans also effects on the economic. Shops and houses prices will increase. Prices are shooting up everywhere makes people don’t live better. In conclusion, tourism industries have both good and bad effect. So, people need method sensible overcome obstacles and difficulties. I hope that the tourism of Vietnam wills sustainable development.

The tourist industry has both good effect and bad effect on our life. It is hardly to say that tourist industry does more harm than good and vice verse. But in my opinion, it has more good effect than bad effect . Firstly , it brings more work for unemployed. When tourist develop, more and more travel services created such as hotel, resort, seashore, etc. People can find job in these place. In addition, many people have change to increases individual income thanks to those services. Their life will be better. Secondly, tourist industry makes more money for its nation. Developing this field increases national income, attract foreign investment and encourage domestic investment. As a result, economic will grow rapidly people will be better. Besides, tourist is also an effective method to broadcast image of its country to all over the world. It is the best way to makes people realise that how their country beautiful.
Anyway, the tourist industry does more good than harm.This is all things I thought.

in some ways, the tourist industry is good for the country but in some ways, it has much harm that we seldom mention.
First of all, tourism affects our environment. We need to use many kind of transpotation to move such as: airplane, bus, car, motorbike, train, ship...
These means use fuel to run and ther eliminate toxic gases which make air pollution and are not doog for our healths.
Second, tourism cause social evils. Nowadays, tourist industry more and more develop so a lot of people like traveling in everywhere.
Therefore, hotels or bars or karaokes are build to satisfy the demand. And some bad people can exploit these to do bad things such as: trading in drugs, storing prostitute, glambling...
Besides, the shops and inns which are in close proximity to one another vied with each other to attract the tourists.
So, it can not avoid controversy or conflicting or fighting.
In short, everything has good points and bad points but if we know how to do, we can evade some bad effects and tourist industry is not an excepion.

**** Tourism is a booming industry. With many travellers flocking to different destinations around the globe, tourism is becoming one of the most viable business markets in the world. However, air travel, car travel and other aspects of tourism are adding to the planet’s pollution crisis and this is becoming a problem. Travel operators and hospitality corporates realised that some action needed to be taken, and Eco-tourism was created as a solution to this problem.
**** That tourism is a major source of income into the countries.
It has turned many countries which were in poverty into countries that are free of poverty.
You learn about different cultures, language and currency.
It raises profile for the area.
Sustainable tourism could include reserves for forest building which would bring increased numbers of wildlife and animals to the country.
If a destination becomes a popular tourist hotspot and you live there, your price of your house will increase.

In my opinion I agree about this statement “The tourist industry does more harm than good”
Firstly although the tourism industry has many advantages but it had many disadvantages. It is the cause of environmental pollution. It does not only affect air pollution, water pollution but it also damages ecological system in which plants and animals moreover, it also affect to our health. Garbages from tourist industry are cause lead to many diseases such as cancel or lung disease
Secondly tourist industry develop very fast Many hotels are built confusied lead to loose the beauty of countries.
So, I hope that in the near future, tourist industry will have solution for enviromental pollution to protect our health. This is nescessary for all of us

The tourist industry is a booming industry helping people make a lot of money.However , the tourist industry does more harm than good. First of all, the tourist business exerts its influence on environment. The environment will be polluted by refuses thrown to the ground. It is an irresponsible act which is not easy to avoid because the backpacking tour is not as the same as available comforts at home. Moreover, the tourist industry affects natural landscape. Nowadays, a fast-growing economy is a main factor for people to go on a tour.Travelling many times makes scenery deteriorate. The landscape,which loses natural beauty quickly ,is worn out.In short, the tourist industry has unintenational disadvantages. The tourist industry,which is harmful or good, belongs to people 's aware protecting the landscape.To protect public property is people 's duty ! ^^

I agree to the statement above. For one thing, the cases of robbing are increasing rapidly. When the tourist seasons is at their peak, this is the best time for pickpockets to do their jobs. They take advantage of the time when people take part in leisure activities. Then they pretend to jostle for something and rob others of their possessions. For another, tourism costs people more than they might think. Each travel agent offers their own packages to certain groups of people according to their being affordable. In fact, when travelling there are a lot of things grabbing their attentions that paying out an amount of money is required. Last but not least, bad effects on environment are unavoidable. When tourists, especially disorganized ones, come to tourist sites, they tend to litter landscapes or anywhere convenient. It simply shows that they do not care about the places they have visited and sometimes, people living their do the same, too. In short, The tourist industry does more harm than good.

I totally disagree with that. In my whole experience in teaching English to tourists, they've never become a burden to me. Tourism in the country just gets more bigger and bigger and it does help the economy of the country. I am an English teacher and at the same time I travel around the world.

Well, we can find many arguments for and against tourism. But in my opinion, the main point is that tourists bring money to the economy of their destination country, which helps the local people to improve their standards of living. Or even to survive. In many countries, where unemployment rate is really high, tourism is the only sourse on income. Let's take Crimea, for example. I know that many people there rely on tourist season to earn enough money for the whole year to come, they put every posiible room for rent, often moving out of their house themselves. I am afraid, this year many people lost such a possibility, which made it impossible for them to earn anything. Unfortunately, Mr Putin doesn't care.

According to me, tourism brings more good than harm. Well, this is a huge gain money, promotion of the city or state and the general development of the industry. On tourism are gaining not only people, travel agencies, but also the entire economy of the state.

There are arguments for and against... But in my point of view tourism does more harm. I know that it's good way to earn some money, but sometimes we should think about environment. People don't care about place where they are and thereupon these places are more polluted. Moreover people are destroying some areas to build many hotel complexs... It caused that in touristic places in the world there are to many people, lots of noise and rubbish etc.

I agree with this sentence, that tourist industry cause more harm than good. People have to deforestation to built next factory or hotel. Tourist produce pullutions, and generally rubbish everywhere. No one is responsible for that, so our environment going to destroy, and nobody can stop it. In addition tourist industry is too much, and people still built new place for that without sense and it always brings a lot of noise for everyone, so it cant be relax for tourists only stressed.

,,The tourist industry does more harm than good."

it is true.
More and more people travel. It couses more and more new roads, bulidings, shops, hotels etc.
It is reason less and less forest area or free places ( without different facilities ). People move around by cars, plants, trains, which make polution. Our curiosity is very big. We want visit a lot of places for example mountais, forest and everywhere we leave rubbish. It is dangerous for environement.

As far as i Concerned It has more disadvantages, it has some advantages in terms of entertainment only. People now a days are very fond of traveling to avoid their anxiety and people are coming from outside to have a look on particular's culture and then make movies and all for the entertainment purpose.But disadvantages are rather more and having terrible impact for e.g Tourism causes environmental destruction, forest are getting fired to establish hotel and resort there for tourism purpose, natural landscape are being polluted for the sake of people's entertainment
