As Tosun (2002) suggests, tourism generating from developed countries can have a negative socio-cultural impact (e.g., decline in traditions, materialization, and social conflicts) on members of developing countries. Further, the demonstration effect of tourism is seen as the main cause of change within community values, where the influx of
Tourism activity obstructed in the short-term occurs when travel agents stop suggesting the destination to potential clients, when border closures intended to prevent tourism activities both to and from the country are implemented and when the delivery of tourism services are restricted. He also disputed negative media coverage and travel advisories damage a countries image as it affects overall tourism in the long term due to the selection of alternative countries. The tourists have decisions to stay home or select “safer” destinations which in either case are equate to significant tourism revenue losses by the country suffering from terrorism or political instability (Edgell, 1990).

Firstly, the destruction onenvironmental aesthetic and health, and heavy pressure on local resource scarcity caused by tourism operating activities seem to dominate the conservation or restorationefforts of fragile environments from tourist operators or government. At the same time,in developing countries, the whole tourist region and resident individuals are likely dispossessed their net financialbenefits due toleakage effects and the failure of consideration on local human rights. In the case of South East Asia countries, the collaboration between government, private sectors and local residents can be crucial to reduce the negative impacts from tourism in terms of environment and economy and achieve their sustainable tourism development in the future.
Any kind of tourism can be made pro-poor. Pro – Poor Tourism can be applied at different levels, at the enterprise, destination or country level. (Pro-Poor Tourism Partnership 2005a: 1). Tourism is one of the world’s fastest growing industries, outranking allowances and even drugs in many countries as a source of foreign exchange, but the impact of tourism on the poor and on the environment remains under debate as the abstract also states, Certainly many suspect that tourism does more harm than
Over the last 50 years have witnessed tremendous growth in tourism industry. Apparently, enormous profits are gained and gradually becoming a main revenue to many countries. This all-time business, however, is forming many drawbacks to tourists in particular and society in general in terms of environment, health and security. As the number of tourist rapidly increase, environmental problems can be anticipated. Indeed, over-development can be a negative factor as there are more and more constructions are built without any environmental awareness.
This essay will argue that in developing countries the economic and environmental negative impacts caused by tourism outweigh its benefits for local communities. Firstly, tourism has posed several destructive effects on environmental structure of the host regions where operating activities of tourism take place. Undoubtedly, the constructions of facilities and infrastructures as well as heavy visitation resulted by tourism could partly destroy the environmental sites. According to Archer, Cooper and Ruhanne (2005), the uncontrolled tourism development has adulterated and debased the aesthetic value and uniqueness of the local environment by unsightly hotels and other unplanned constructions of facilities. Being agree with this negative impact, Seviour (2013) shows an example of the long line of high-rise hotels along the Jesolo beach in Italy that offend most of visitors by its mismatch with the natural surroundings.
Montana is a state that has a lot of economic growth related to tourism. If tourism in Montana were to stop, the financial detriments that would impede citizens in all cities would be exponential. Because Montana is considered a tourist attraction to many other states, Montana has increased tourism awareness through multiple, different advertising venues. Montana needs to continue to promote tourism in order to sustain economic growth. Montana’s tourism industry supports over 34,000 jobs statewide and brings in millions of dollars each year.
Tourism is “one of the most profitable and rapidly developing industries in the world” (Popushoi, 2004). Every year the number of tourists increase dramatically and consequently the revenues from tourism will increase substantially. The increase in revenue from tourists has allowed the Australian government to further develop infrastructure and services to cater the large influx of tourism. An example of how the Victorian government spent a large proportion of tourism revenue would be the development and implementation of the Ferris Wheel in Docklands known as ‘The Melbourne Star’. Not only has new infrastructure been built, but also heritage or run-down tourist complexes have been renovated or restored.
Poverty alleviation has become an importantstate for peace, environmental conservation, and sustainable development, besides being an ethical obligation in an affluent world, where the divide between poor and rich nations seems to have increased in recent years. (WTO, 2004) Thus, the tourism industry has stretched from the seaside to mountain resorts and from small villages to big metropolises.The projections of high tourism growth in developing nations, where widespread poverty exists, has led to considerable interest in tourism as a tool for poverty alleviation. International development agencies are also turning to tourism as a way of alleviating poverty. This is sometimes termed ‘pro-poor tourism’. Even though that tourism is considered by many communities, especially in developing countries an instrument for development and chance for increasing the quality of life, tourism at the same time started to show its uglier sides.

Everything that occurs in the industry no matter how small or big it is not only affects one sector but can affect the progress of the whole industry. The environmental impacts of tourism on the environment goes hand in hand with crises that affect the industry. If the environmental impacts are ignored it means that there is a bigger chance the industry would face more crises in the form of natural disasters than it already does in the near future due to climate change.
