With the advent of technology and advancement in our ability to communicate worldwide, the tourism industry has seen a boost, overall. Tourism has a different meaning for everyone, individually. Some go out to explore the art, architecture, culture and traditions. Some are mesmerized by the beauty of Mother Nature. And, the list goes on. As a tourist and explorer of different cultures myself, I believe it depends all upon the people of the host country, how they want their cultures to be represented. And, since I have mostly seen people being immensely warm and amiable, I would disagree strongly with the mentioned statement.
