Tourism surge a blight on popular sites in South-east Asia

Click HERE

Note how films can fuel tourism in the example here.....think also of filming locations in South Korean made famous by Korean dramas....:
"In Thailand, park and wildlife authorities have ordered a closure of Maya Bay on Phi Phi Island - made famous by the 2000 Leonardo DiCaprio movie The Beach - to all visitors for four months starting in June."

Note also the rebuttal point that it is due to poor planning, esp in infrastructure and lack of publicity of lesser-known sites....


Qns:
1. Environmental concerns and economic growth cannot co-exist. Do you agree? (Cam. 2011)
2. Should poorer countries develop their tourist industry when the basic needs of their own people are not being met? (Cam. 2007)

3. Do films offer anything more than an escape from reality? (Cam. 2014)
