Anti-tourist resentment is growing in many tourism hotspots due to badly behaved tourists

Published on : Saturday, April 13, 2019

Tourism brings a lot of benefits to communities around the world but tourism hotspots are also facing a lot of pressure with increase of tourist numbers.

 

Locals are objecting to being crowded out of restaurants and parks. They are objecting to paying inflated prices. Most of all they are objecting to tourists behaving badly.

 

Japan’s Nanzoin Temple is famous for its huge statue of a reclining Buddha. Its custodians are wary about the hordes of tourists that the temple attracts. Signs in 12 languages now caution foreign visitors that they should not enter in large groups.

 

It’s all part of anti-tourist sentiment, driven by “the bad manners and abhorrent actions” of many visitors from abroad, reportedly growing all over Japan, and also everywhere else in the world.

 

The increasing prevalance of the badly behaved tourists are posing a serious issue for the tourism industry. In cities like Venice, resentment has boiled over into anti-tourism protests.

 

In Barcelona the cause against foreign visitors has been embraced by left-wing nationalist activists. Their view is expressed in graffiti around Barcelona: “Refugees welcome; tourists go home.”
