The Filipino people value family, religion, selflessness and a hard work ethic. The culture of the Philippines is very family orientated, and the people value their Catholic religion above anything else. For the Experimental Learning Project, I interviewed Clavel Wells and she was born in the Philippines. She was fortunate enough to have grown up in a household that did not face extreme poverty, although that did not take away from her hard work ethic. Growing up in the Phillipines, everyone worked in the household to support the family. That has transpired into her life in America, and now she regularly works hard as her role as an LPN. She ensures to respect everyone she cares for, regardless of their cultural
Just like modern day tourists, the tourism industry has been on a steady, fast paced journey due to technological evolution. With the affordability and easy accessibility, traveling potential has greatly increased. Sometimes, it is the destination that matters along with the people you go on the voyage with. This paper will analyze Isla Holbox as a cultural destination.
Tourism has several impacts on many different aspects of Bali’s society. Tourism has impacted on the already existing, social, economic, cultural and environmental processes of the island. For example, as a result of tourism the pace of urbanisation has rapid increased and tourism has sped up the process of economic development.
This chapter reinforces schwartz argument that tourism has a tremendous impact on society. She writes of how citizens were coming up with ways that made them seemed more exotic, in order to attract more tourists. One example Schwartz writes about is the Siboney Sun Worshipers. These people claimed to be aboriginal Siboney Indians, and would performed a sun ritual that tourists highly enjoyed. Schwartz explains, that Cuba’s original Indians had been completely wiped out by diseases brought by the Spanish, and the island’s Indians never had a ritual of the sun. Her main point in this chapter is to demonstrate that when tourism becomes an important aspect of a country, everything changes. Residents along with the government soon adapt cultural aspects, trying to promote uniqness and exotism that will make them look more attractive to
The travel and tourism industry is one of the world's largest industries with a global economic contribution in 2016 alone of over 7.6 trillion U.S. dollars (Facts, 2017). Over the past six decades, tourism has experienced continued expansion and diversification to become one of the largest and fastest-growing economic sectors in the world (http://www.e-unwto.org/doi/pdf/10.18111/9789284418145). With this exponential growth, there is a need to harness this potential to benefit all stakeholders involved, from local communities to global corporations. According to Tourism Research Australia (TRA), tourism in 2016 brought in over fifty-three billion dollars into the Australian economy (***fact sheet in Excel). While this represents over three percent of the total GDP of Australia, it is hard to delineate how much of this revenue is attributed to cultural tours and experiences provided by Indigenous Australians. For Indigenous Australians, this new avenue has potential to create job opportunities as well as revenue, but also may contribute to problems brought into effect by the mandating of professional standards. While latent prospects are present, the ability to balance between cultural preservation and mainstream Australia will prove to be a difficult undertaking.
Millions of people go up and down its steps, some of them knowing their past, others taking pictures in it while knowing little of the cultural importance. The landscape itself is a city, and should not be forgotten. A city welcomes people, and allows for many cultures to be living together in one location. In the case of Teotihuacan, it is not enough to debate who owns it, the debate should entertain ways people could work together to conserve the site, and allow everyone to have a similar knowledge of what each step means. The indigenous should not be pushed away, and the tourists should still be encouraged to visit. After all, the indigenous economy also depends on tourist activity, and the sale of their art and work to a curious other. Much like this symbiosis on the grounds of the site, the cooperation of all parties should be promoted on a facilitative level. The government knows the ins and outs of efficiently running the tourist site, yet the indigenous have alternative knowledge to offer the visitors. Whether their participation comes in the form of workshops, culturally immersive tours or seats at the administrative table, the indigenous should be welcomed into playing a more active role in the tourism that takes place at Teotihuacan, to ensure the wellbeing of the site. The tourist still seeks what is authentic, and the actions taken by the indigenous will allow for Teotihuacan to once again be transformed
The Philippines have various cultures because it was colonized by different countries which influenced most of the cultures. From what I experienced people in the Philippines are always open. They always have a warm welcome whenever they meet new people, they are always open to making new friends from what I have experienced. I think there is racism in the Philippines but I have never seen it or I have not experienced it. The people I associated with are not racist, they were very open, whenever there is someone that is not the same race. When it comes to families, our families treat each other like relatives and we trust each other. I grew up with Filipino and a little bit of Portuguese culture since my dad was Portuguese. I say that because there are some things we do differently and how my dad acts or protects us. We had the opportunity to socialize with people in our neighborhoods, we would always play outside like tagu taguan, agawan base, patintero and more. Tagu Taguan is a Filipino version of hide and seek, agawan base is basically there are two teams who has their own bases and
Throughout my academic career, I have taken courses in Research Methods, Public Policy, International Relations and Politics and History of Alternative Tourism. Through this coursework, I have learned the importance
In Elayne Zorn’s book of community based tourism in Peru, Weaving the future, Tourism, Cloth, and Culture on an Andean Island, Zorn talks about the successful efforts of the Taquileans in managing their lands and culture.

Tourism has greatly increased over the years and has brought people of different cultures closer. There are many places to go explore and learn about how other live in different countries. Tourism has allowed travelers to the world around them, however the impacts from tourism on the host country are not known by many of the travelers. Some of these impacts from tourism can be negatively affecting the host country and those travelers who do not educate themselves on where they are going are most likely contributing to the negative impact. The Kayan people are one of the societies that are greatly affected by the tourism that comes to their village. The women are the main attraction of the village due to the rings that they wear around
As mentioned by Rimmington & Morrison (2009), the assistance from different parts of the world presents a new and diverse outlook for future research including theoretical innovations and revelations, cultural and environmental aspects, tourist destination and other ecotourism and recreational aspects of tourism and hospitality industry (Brotherton,
