However, mounting criticism of this sector has increased the interest in alternative tourism. The Caribbean island of Montserrat is well positioned to implement an ecotourism strategy based on the island's scenic beauty, biodiversity and historical/cultural attributes. This would augment an already unconventional tourism product emphasizing low-density residential tourism. The fact that few tangible initiatives have so far been taken in the direction of ecotourism is not problematic, since careful planning is advisable given the risks inherent in any form of tourism, and given existing and potential problems which could threaten its viability. A Montserrat Heritage Trail network is proposed as the centrepiece of this ecotourism product, while various marketing and institutional initiatives are recommended. Keywords: Montserrat, alternative tourism, ecotourism, small islands Peripheral regions are continuously struggling to identify activities which will contribute to the......

Heritage

...Our heritage is a big part of what makes a country unique. Heritage enhances our quality of life and sense of place. It reflects the distinct expressions and aspirations of our country and its culture. Heritage is not just about the past. It is about the places, spaces and stories that we should value today and save and preserve them for tomorrow. Heritage places and heritage buildings are fundamental to our sense of history community and identity. Communities across Canada, the United States, and abroad have been capitalizing on their distinctive heritage assests by revitalizing their business cores and reclaiming them as the commercial and social hubs of the community. Besides economic value, heritage resources have intrinsic value in the information they contain about the past. They can teach us great deal. Who lived here? What happened here? Buildings, landscapes and archaeological sites can give us a unique insight into our past- knowledge that sometimes cannot be obtained any other way. Our heritage helps us make sense of our rapidly changing world and guides us into the future. Well-maintained historic buildings, streetscapes and landscapes contribute to safe and comfortable neighborhoods and foster local identity and pride. Old buildings embody energy and materials. Reusing older buildings saves the destruction of trees, saves the energy used to transport them to mills and create new construction materials, and saves more green space from development.

...Negative Impact Of Tourism On ( Language ) , ( Religion ) And ( Customs And Tradition ) | | | | <Name> | | <Date> | | Introduction Tourism is unarguably one of the most dynamic and developing sectors earning a myriad of countries across the globe millions of dollars in different forms. A number of countries have benefited from infrastructural development, currency inflows, educational and management skills associated with tourism. Citizens from these countries have as well gained from various employment opportunities resulting from economic development of the regions visited by tourists.

(Smith, 2006) Currently, it is approximated that tourism contributes to 10% of global income with at least 10% of the world workforce earning their daily bread from the sector. Viewed as ‘manna from heaven’ most analysts perceive tourisms as a way of balancing foreign trade and as a source of foreign exchange with minimal discussion on the negative challenges it’s associated with. The discussion in this paper will mainly focus on the negative challenges of tourism with deep analysis on language, religion, customs and tradition, drawing examples from various countries known as tourist destinations across the globe.
