How tourism has benefited countries around the world

If you ask most people what they would like to do if they had a lot of money, they would probably say travel the world. Traveling requires three things. One is that you have an appropriate budget. The other is that you have the time to do it, and the last is that you don’t have serious obligations to commit to at home. If all these three parameters are met, you are good to go. But how did it gain so much traction and why did society embrace it so much?

  1. Reconstruction of city centers and tourist sites

    One of the things a country needs to do to attract tourists is to make sure everything is nice and clean. Imagine traveling thousands of kilometers and reaching a destination where you only see garbage on the streets. You wouldn’t go again, would you? This is what the businessmen have in mind and so they decide to ennoble their place. We often say that visiting the tourist spots of a country is very different from visiting the rest of the country where poverty is present and ugliness is a fact. Many countries that have hosted major events such as the Olympics or the World Cup have had the chance to renovate the center and make it a pleasant place.
    In some cases, people protest because renovation means the government will spend money on buildings instead of people. It is a matter of political will and social justice how a country will manage its finances and whether it will apply strict rules to avoid corruption. However, the fact that city centers have become nicer is true, that’s why people love them.

  2. More jobs for people and income generation

    Tourism is an industry and like any industry it leaves room for profit for everyone and it is a very profitable industry. You may be shocked to hear that 10% of the world’s jobs come from the tourism sector. It’s where people spend the money they earn from their regular jobs or business activities and a fun way to redistribute wealth to the world. Also, when tourists visit a country, local businessmen will do their best to create opportunities for tourists to spend their money. Amusement parks are a perfect example. They may not be considered tourism investments, but they are closely related to people moving around the city.
    Often locals don’t have the budget to spend that much money in their hometowns. A person living in his place will spend a certain amount of money to live there. When the same person goes as a tourist to another city or country, he will spend much more money in a shorter period of time. This money is absorbed by the local community and distributed to workers in the tourism sector, leaving a significant profit for investors and the entire community.

  3. Preservation of historical and natural sites

    Another part of tourists like to visit historical sights. Some countries like Italy and many places in Europe have kept their monuments in excellent condition. The result is outstanding. Europe attracts thousands of tourists a year because walking the streets of Rome and Paris, for example, is like living in a fairy tale in the 18th century. Yet, other countries only had the luxury of focusing on preserving their unique identity once tourism was on the map. The profits that come from this industry have created a motivation for governments to find money for the preservation not only of historical sites but also of nature. Can you imagine how all this would appear now if it were not for tourists? Historic sites will be abandoned and forests will be littered with trash. This is vital because both are of great importance and would otherwise not be respected.
