Tourism as an industry is worth billions of dollars all over the world. It is an industry that gives employment and a means of earning a sustainable living to people who might otherwise struggle to make ends meet.
More remote parts of the world or places that suffer from severe poverty or lack of access to education can realistically support themselves by providing some form of support services/products to visiting tourists.
