Tourism needs to be maintained with strict regulations in order to be sustained

Published on : Thursday, January 11, 2018

globeAbout three million tourists are expected to tour the world each day this year.

A list of 20 places has been revealed that have been ruined due to over tourism. For example, the Antarctica is getting an alarming level of pollution.


The shining milky white marble of the famous Taj Mahal, a monument of love from the Mughal emperor Shah Jahan to the memory of his wife, Mumtaz, has got a yellow shade.


Mount Everest is strewn with trash from invading visitors. The Great Wall of China has been so mistreated by the massive invasion of tourists that it has begun to crumble in places. The famous beaches of Bali are littered with trash, traffic is in a gridlock and roads and footpaths are in a dangerous state of disorder.

Macchu Picchu has such a large number of visitors that archaeologists are worried about preservation of the site. The famous Australian Coral Reef Barrier has already lost one third of the corals. The Galapagos Islands, where Charles Darwin conceived his famous theory of natural selection, has so many visitors impinging on his fragile eco balance that in 2007, the UNESCO placed it on the list of endangered World Heritage Sites.


The wonders of Angkor Wat in Cambodia are suffering the same fate, together with the Colosseum in Rome, where every week somebody gets caught for chipping away pieces of columns or graffiting the pillars. But maybe, the best example of the negative impact of tourism is Venice.

Venice officially now has 54,000 residents. They were 100,000 in 1970. Every year 1,000 residents leave for the mainland because rents and cost of life keeps going up and large numbers of tourists make life impossible for the residents. The number of sweepers and cleaners employed by the city needs to be increased. Giant ships continue to ply over the delicate micro system of the lagoon and their lobby is very strong. There is now a clear conflict between those who live off tourism and those who have other jobs. In Barcelona, residents are now demonstrating against mass tourism.
