  · Money made from cultural traditions (selling souvenirs) could be invested in the preservation of such traditions. For example, people at Bat Trang selling ceramic products to continue this tradition. · Government construct museums and galleries to display cultural traditions → preserve such traditions without destroying them.     · Many traditions are modified for commercialization → lose their authenticity and value. · Traditional sites are ruined by irresponsible tourists.  

Cultural Differences

Some people believe that visitors to other countries should follow local customs and behaviour. Others think that the host country should welcome cultural differences.

People believe that tourists visiting other countries should always keep in mind to follow the customs and traditions of such nations. Whereas others say that the host nations should be open to cultural diversity.

To begin, tourists visiting countries which are known to be rich in culture and tradition often have strict practices in maintaining their identity in which they require their visitors to pay respect to their way of life. Consequently with these practices, visitors develop a sense of open mindedness and flexibility to be able to socialize with the locals as well as built relationship between the host and the visitors. These characters will not only open doors of opportunities for the visitors to gain access to the unique identity of the country, but also it would build ties with the tourists and the host country.

On the other hand, countries should practice globalisation to be able to welcome cultural diversity which in turn would enrich the countries' tourism and economy. These days, nations should embrace the fact that culture also involves change and with this, it is important that a country should also develop a sense of diversity in welcoming tourists from different cultural background to be able to build lasting relationship with the tourists' home countries.

In conclusion, visitors and host countries play pivotal roles in terms of cultural identity and cultural diversity. I believe that both views is a two-way system that needs to work hand in hand with each other to develop the sense of respect required from visitors about a nation's culture and practices, and to further embrace globalisation and diversity for the countries being visited.
