Is it a good idea for local governments to build tourist sites, such as theme parks and museums?
POINTS: Construction costs / Effect on local people / Spending by visitors / The environment
In recent years, we can see a lot of news about constructing tourist sites, and I think it is a beneficial idea for local government.
First, amusement parks and museums can attract a lot of visitors. In fact, many tourists visit Tokyo Disney land and sea. As a result, many tourists spend much money on purchasing souvenir, eating meals and staying at hotels there. Therefore, buildings amusement parks and museums will activate the local economy due to spending by visitors.
Second, building amusement parks and museums have a positive effect on local people. Actually, constructing and running new facilities for tourists requires various kinds of jobs. As a result, many companies will hire new employees. Therefore, by constructing amusement parks and museums, the employment rates will increase in the local areas.
In conclusion, from the above 2 perspectives, I firmly believe it is a desirable idea for local government to build tourist sites.
