Currently, the issues of Jeju tourism arise by the internal and external factors. The external factor is the massive Chinese tourists. As after the Korea government offer the visa-free access the Jeju Island for chinese tourists, it brings some issues for Jeju. The massive Chinese tourists bring some benefit on Jeju economy, but soon there arise some issues, such as crowded transport, depletion resource and local resident’s unsatisfied. The Jing Daily (2015) has posted an article ‘Tension Mounts as Chinese Tourists overtake Jeju Island’. In this article, it mentioned the issues arise by the mass Chinese tourists, related to economic, social and local cultural. The Chinese travelers have become the most profitable tourists in the world and some countries start to change their tourism regulation and policies to Chinese, such as Emirate allowed the extra baggage for Chinese tourists to shop (Ryan 2014). The South Korean government found the way to increase their tourism industry and grow their economy. They offer the visa-free access to Jeju Island for Chinese tourists which has an obvious benefit after this policy start.

However, as more Chinese tourists visit Jeju and more investment in Jeju, this lead to some Jeju residents worried about their local environment. As new casinos, hotels,

Tourism has taken a toll on many Native Hawaiians and is a huge human rights issue today. Most Hawaiians dislike tourism greatly due to the selfishness and greediness tourists bring to their home country. The pastor at a small rural church on the island of Kauai, Reverend Kaleo Patterson, has witnessed and dealt with numerous Hawaiians who struggle with the issues of tourism. Numerous vacation resorts that attract tourists have taken over gravesites of Hawaiians that have passed away. Due to this problem ancient Hawaiians have to partake in reburials. Tourism causes destruction to coral reefs and rivers because of mindless pollution. Reverend Patterson has protested and given public hearings in effort to acknowledge her fury on tourism. Tourism has brought an uncontrollable worldwide business that has no sympathy or thoughtfulness for the original people of Hawaii.
Hawaii is located in the central Pacific Ocean; it is one of the many islands in Polynesia. It is composed of eight main islands: Niihau, Kauai, Oahu, Molokai, Lanai, Kahoolawe, Maui and the Island of Hawaii, the island of Hawaii being the largest island of the eight (see attached map). According to the census bureau, as of 2014, Hawaii ‘s population is approximately 1,419,561 with Native Hawaiians forming only 10% of the population; in order to be considered a Native Hawaiian you must have one native great-grandparent (2014 United States Census Bureau). Hawaii’s official languages are English and Hawaiian. Hawaii was first occupied by people coming from the Marquesas Islands approximately 1500 years ago followed by people from Tahiti. In 1778 Captain Cook arrived in Hawaii finding approximately 300,00 Hawaiians there. In the 1850’s Hawaiians worked in sugar cane plantations. In 1983 Queen Liliuokalani was deposed and in 1900 Hawaii became a United States Territory. Fifty-nine years later, in 1959, Hawaii became the 50th state of the United States. Tourism plays a huge role in Hawaii’s culture; it is a big part of its economy and social life. This paper will be discussing Hawaii’s tourism and it’s effects.
Hawaii’s beautiful terrain, clear ocean waters, and year around tropical climate temperatures, combined with the people’s Aloha and welcoming spirit has made the islands one of the most attractive location in the world to visit. In 1997, 158,000 individuals visited Hawaii each day, and the annual tourist arrival count was 6.8 million. (Luciano). Although Hawaii’s tourism business has improved the socio-economic condition for many that has made Hawaii their home, there have been negative impacts to Native Hawaiians with second and third order effects that go unseen behind the ocean front hotels, luaus, and tourist attractions. Hawaii has become a major tourist destination that receives over six million visitors per year. One of a major contributor to the Hawaiian economy, so much that it generates 10 billion dollars per year to the economy. (Lukasz). Because of tourism, the negative impact on the Native Hawaiians has been eye opening for the economic effects and even globalization. At home, specific negative effects include overbuilding to accommodate increased population densities, low income jobs, and mistreatment from tourists.
Americans are among the wealthiest people in the world. Most of us US citizens do not fully realize how much poverty is out there in the world. Traveling internationally is a privilege that is often dreamed about by many people worldwide. We see postcards and pictures of places wishing that we could see the palm trees, the turquoise water, and the sandy beaches. But what the postcards do not portray is the dark and mysterious world that lies behind the pictures. The pictures made me feel very excited about traveling to Jamaica. I knew that it was a poorer country. I had seen mission trip videos from the past. For many years, I have longed to go there. The
Jamaica Kincaid addresses the reader as a tourist in her book A Small Place. Throughout the book her sarcasm and resentment towards the postcolonial state of the country cannot be missed. She exposes the “ugliness” of tourism, she writes, “The thing you have always suspected about yourself the minute you become a tourist is true: A tourist is an ugly human being” (14). Kincaid points to the fact that the tourists (European and American) and the tourism industry are morally ugly. The first section of her book displays how tourism uses the natives and the country as sources of pleasure for the tourists as they make their way to their hotel, they watch in awe at the condition of the country. Kincaid writes, “They [Antiguans] are too poor to escape the reality of their lives; and they are too poor to live properly in the place where they live, which is the very place you, the tourist, want to go—they envy your ability to turn their own banality and boredom into a source of pleasure for yourself” (19). The tourists do not see, and perhaps do not want to see the reality of this picturesque island they are vacationing on. Kincaid writes, “[Y]ou needn’t let that slightly funny feeling you have from time to time about exploitation, oppression, domination develop into full-fledged unease, discomfort; you could ruin your holiday” (10). This mirrors the mindset of not only tourists, but of the past and current exploiters who do not see the suffering and damage they cause, but
When one looks at the social and economic indicators of well-being, the conclusion is clear. Tourism has not benefited the host Native Hawaiian people and it probably never will. To understand this, one must understand that Hawaii today is at the mercy of transnational interests. Foreign investment related to tourism went from 70.8 million dollars in 1981 to over a billion and a half in 1986. The increase is enough to make anyone’s head spin and confirms the vulnerability of Hawaii and Hawaii’s people. Japanese investment in leading the pack has plunked down over 3 billion dollars for hotels alone in a time period of eighteen years ending 1989. The Australians are far behind the second place with 117 million. Today, almost every major hotel is owned by foreign investors and almost every hotel on the drawing board is being funded by foreign investment. The rapid and phenomenal increase of foreign investment is the clearest indication that any consideration of the short and long term negative impact of tourism is of no consequence to those involved in the industry.
While many problems are associated with International tourism, it can still offer some advantages. For one thing, International tourism can open job opportunities for the native citizens. To demonstrate, when tourists visit an area, the vast majority of them don’t have a clue on

The second effect is sociocultural. According to Dogan (1989), tourism development has a great effect on the socio-cultural characteristics of residents like habits, daily routines, social lives and beliefs, and values. They may lead to psychological tension. Firstly, there are many positives from tourism development. Brunt and Courtney (1999) mentioned that tourism can result in improved community services, additional park, recreation and cultural facilities and encouragement of cultural activities. Tourism also encourages cultural activities and improve cultural heritage (Gilbert & Clark 1997). However, this may lead to some negative like traditional family values ( Kousis, 1989); cultural commercialization ( Cohen, 1988); crime (Brunt &
The current research paper covers the main effects of global tourism, both positive and negative. International tourism is a significant sector of business. For some countries it is one of the main sources of national income. The most important positive economic effects of tourism are as follows: increase in budget revenues, production expansion, stimulation of investments, and improvement in the population’s welfare. Tourism influences social and cultural lives of people in a positive way by stimulating the development and revival of local cultures and encouraging intercultural exchange.
In the more developed world, every industry in the rapid development. This is a high-speed development in the 21st century, especially tourism and hospitality.

- Lack of time management due to global time difference and cause delay in meeting deadlines;
I choose Tokyo which is one of the biggest cities in Japan as my destination city. Tokyo will be my next tourism destination too. “Tokyo has 2,187 square kilometers consisting of 23 districts, 26 cities, 5 towns and 8 villages” ("Tokyo", n.d.). “Tokyo is well-known because it is a world-class city in Aisa, and it is also an important commercial, fashion, and financial center.” Therefore Tokyo becomes a bustling place and “it's also one of the cities with the highest degree of economic development and affluence” ("Tokyo", n.d.). “There are many famous shopping malls attracting tourists from global and 3,700 million people living in Tokyo” ("Tokyo", n.d.). “Tokyo's GDP is $1.624 trillion, and it would rank as the 15th largest economy in the world ” (Florida, R., March 16, 2017.)
The Travel and Tourism industry is still one of the largest single businesses in world commerce and its importance is widely recognized. The tourism industry is now one of the largest sectors earning foreign exchange. In the face of many benefits, many countries have started assigning due weight age to the tourism industry in their national development agenda. Tourism is an industry that operates on a massively broad scale: it embraces activities ranging from the smallest sea-side hotel; to air-lines, multi-national hotel chains and major international tour operators. Originally, non-traditional industries such as tourism emerged as a solution to strike a balance between ecology and industry
Therefore, Singapore needs to have good tourism planning to also accommodate to tourists, while ensuring that locals are not compromised of their own interests. A healthy balance of land space and resources to be distributed for business and commercial uses, housing and tourist sites, are hence relatively important in ensuring that all the different needs of the locals as well as tourists are met.
