  2. International travel makes people prejudiced rather than broad-minded. What are its causes and what measures can be taken to solve this problem?
    It is undeniable that international tourism has taken enormous dimensions. This essay will first state that sometimes, international tourism creates tension rather than understanding between people from different cultures by disrespecting the local norms and the government should step in and issue strict guidelines for tourist companies to guide travelers.
    The most important reason why some are opposed to international tourism is that tourists may unknowingly show disrespect for local culture. In some nations, people generally cover their heads in a religious place. A tourist may not do so or take his shoes inside a temple. This may offend the local people. For example, The Times of India reported that many people participated in a protest that proposed banning the entry of foreign nationals to the Golden Temple if they failed to adhere the ancient customs.
    We cannot discourage tourism. It is the backbone of many economies of the world. Through stringent guidelines instructed by the government, the tour operators should take the onus of guiding the holidaymakers about the main rituals of local culture, consequently, tourists will observe the local rules during their visit to local amenities and there will be no stress among local residents. For example, in the United Arab Emirates, visitors are well informed about their limitations by the tour guides before they roam around. It has witnessed that this country has set an example of accepting more tourists every year without creating any imbalance between locals and foreigners.
    In conclusion, the inadequate behavior of foreigners while visiting local places may cause tension, but this can be avoided if the authorities put in place proper rules for local guides to instruct the foreign travelers to lessen the negative effects of overseas travel.
