TOURISM IMPACTS ON CUTURE AND SOCIETY

I. INTRODUCTION

Tourism has been referred to as a Janus-faced phenomenon. It has the potential to change societies for
better or for worse. The interaction between tourists and residents has the potential to create conflict or
cultural clash. Conflict sometimes arise due to mismatch of expectations between tourists and residents.
As such, they are bound to influence each other’s culture of varying degrees. Tourism is catalyst for
change, which generates a series of impacts especially in host communities.

According to Deery, Jago,and Fredline, it is important that government understands the social impacts of
tourism, particularly on communities in order for them to take action to reduce potential community
backlash against tourist and tourism development.
