Foreign tourism tends to be a famous icon in recent years. In this essay, I first of all examine the reasons for the detrimental influences, then I suggest how this opinion may be changed.

There are a variety of reasons why these countries suffer from adverse impacts. One reason is that tourists from overseas create pollution and waste, such as throwing the plastic bottle, producing high-traffic volume and bringing the noise from visitors, has caused the pace of life significantly. The other reason is some visitors disrespect for local customs and traditional cultures. For example, two years ago, when I was travelling to one of the historical temples in Thailand, some people who were wearing short skirt or vest, which is easy to trigger to those who have religious beliefs.

To change the opposing views on tourism development, the government may take effective measures in this situation. The government should explain the benefits of international tourism, and the local economy can benefit from the tourism industry. For example, during the vacation, the customer will spend money in restaurants and hotels, then the authority could be publicized this aspect. Meanwhile, The government should enhance the awareness of foreign tourists, ranging from roadside billboards to advertisements in the public area; it may reduce the harmful effect.

In conclusion, while international tourism might bring a negative effect on the local’s life, personally, it can increase the nation’s income. The government should introduce laws to protect the standard of citizens’ life.
