Organized tour to remote community and other countries is increasingly popular. Is it a positive or negative development for the local people and environment?

The past few years have witnessed the burgeoning growth of organized tours to secluded parts of the world. From my perspective,
this
phenomenon brings both and beneficial and adverse outcomes on the locals and the environmental quality. The ever-increasing popularity of package tours to rural areas offers definite perks. Regarding the locals, they can enjoy the amelioration in the living standard. To achieve an increment in tourist arrivals and cater for the growing demand of incoming tourists, more entertainment facilities and transport infrastructure within these locations are often established and improved.
Such
easier access to better amenities can bring more joy and make lives less difficult in remote areas. As for the environment, tourists tend to show a preference for lush and verdant space when it comes to what countryside or far flung retreats has to offer.
Thus
, more trees would be planted and the air quality would
then
be significantly improved.
However
, there can
also
be certain negative impacts brought by
this
trend that are worth mentioning.
Firstly
, the development of
this
mode of tourism may give rise to environmental degradation. Organized tours often bring a massive number of tourists to remote and previously unspoilt areas.
This
can be explained by a significant amount of water and air pollution as environmentally unconscious tourists may throw litter or spit on the streets.
Secondly
, tourists should
also
be held accountable for causing enormous disturbance to the life of locals. Intrigued by the exotic way of living that they hardly encounter in their daily life, some tourists may give them the autonomy to interfere with local residents’ life,
such
as freely going into their houses to explore, or asking too many questions surrounding their private lives. In conclusion, both beneficial and detrimental effects on local people and the environment can be seen
as a result
of the rise in trips to distant regions.

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
