Tourism has positive impact on economy however it also has negative effects on environment. Mother Earth is facing a great danger since it’s been treated with irresponsibility of our actions and irresponsible tourism is one of the greatest threats to earth. people have to analyze the negative impacts of tourism, such as impacts of land pollution, air pollution, and water pollution that leads serious problems for inhabitants and ecosystem.
Although the tourism sector has generated a living for the local people, the debate remains controversial as to whether tourism has positive or negative impacts on locals. Tourists have a choice of where to go and how to spend their money whereas developers have many choices of locations and tourism products.
