Excerpt:
Tourism is an important economic sector that contributes to the economic development and wealth of a country and its people. Although various positive effects have to be acknowledged, negative aspects cannot be left out of consideration. Hence, tourism is jointly responsible for the economic dependence of specific countries, the cultural alienation of different ethnic groups and the pollution of the environment. The aim of this paper is to focus in particular on the positive and negative impact of tourism on economy and culture in different countries and also to discuss the trend of sustainable tourism as a counteraction and an attempt to avoid some of the disadvantages.
