A lot of places in the world rely on tourism as a main source of income. Unfortunately, tourism can also be a source of problems if it is not managed correctly. Describe the advantages and disadvantages of tourism in the modern world. Do you think that benefits of tourism outweigh its drawbacks?

Nowadays,
tourism
generates a significant proportion of income for many countries throughout the world, but it has its drawbacks too.
This
essay will focus on main advantages of
tourism
such
as additional
money
for a country to spend and creation of new jobs, along with main disadvantages
such
as increasing criminality and environmental problems.
To begin
with, the two main advantages of developed
tourism
are the boost in
country’s economy
Suggestion
the country’s economy
and a large number of jobs that are being provided for locals. The more tourists are travelling abroad, the more
money
is being spent on different services including shopping centres, food markets, transportation, hotels and amusements.
This
way,
tourism
provides a country with additional income that a country needs in order to develop itself. Many different jobs can
also
be created due to the
tourism
such
as hotel
stuff
personnel who assist their superior in carrying out an assigned task
staff
, tour guides, restaurant workers and taxi drivers.
Nevertheless
, the
tourism
has
also
caused many problems
such
as a growth in crime and destruction of popular destinations. The presence of tourists having large sums of
money
to spend and carrying expensive jewellery and different devices
such
as cameras and smartphones, increases the attraction for criminals and brings with it activities
such
as robbery. The other fact is that many places are being destroyed by tourists who do not behave with respect to nature, ancient buildings, temples and monuments. Take as example Red Sea that already lost half of its corals because of people who want to take some
to
Suggestion
of
with
them to their homes or damage them by standing on them. To conclude,
although
the
tourism
can cause a growth in crime rates and has destructive effects on natural wealth, it is extremely beneficial for many countries as they can receive additional
money
from tourists and as it provides their citizens with a wide range of jobs.

Include an introduction and conclusion

A conclusion is essential for IELTS writing task 2. It is more important than most people realise. You will be penalised for missing a conclusion in your IELTS essay.

The easiest paragraph to write in an essay is the conclusion paragraph. This is because the paragraph mostly contains information that has already been presented in the essay – it is just the repetition of some information written in the introduction paragraph and supporting paragraphs.

The conclusion paragraph only has 3 sentences:

  • Summary
  • Restatement of thesis
  • Prediction or recommendation

Example:

To summarize, a robotic teacher does not have the necessary disciple to properly give instructions to students and actually works to retard the ability of a student to comprehend new lessons. Therefore, it is clear that the idea of running a classroom completely by a machine cannot be supported. After thorough analysis on this subject, it is predicted that the adverse effects of the debate over technology-driven teaching will always be greater than the positive effects, and because of this, classroom teachers will never be substituted for technology.

Start your conclusion with a linking phrase. Here are some examples:

  • In conclusion
  • To conclude
  • To summarize
  • Finally
  • In a nutshell
  • In general
