Part 3 - Follow-up Questions

1. Why do some people like to visit historical places?

People go to historical cities to learn/gain knowledge about the past, the way of life of the people in the past, their culture, their roots, and the architecture. 

2. Why do people go to modern city

People visit modern cities for various purposes. Some go for work/business reasons, and some for tourism. Those who travel for pleasure to modern cities is to experience a life, where modern technology is incorporated in every aspect of life and to learn and see how people there are using technology in their daily lives. Singapore is a very good example of such a city, where we can not only experience the modern way of life, but also see how they have used modernization to help preserve and enrich the environment. 

3. What are the problems caused by maintaining a historical city?

The problems that maintenance of a historical city perhaps can cause are related to the funds required for the restoration and upkeep of the city. Another issue could be the pressure on the resources of that city because of tourism.

4. Do you think having too many tourists is a positive thing for historical attractions?

No, I don’t think so. I believe that too many tourists will lead to pollution and also will affect the upkeep of historical sites. Such sites need a lot of care and maintenance and limiting the number of visitors to such sites can help maintain them, prevent damage to such sites, and also sustains tourism.

5. What can we do to stop visitors from damaging historical places?

To prevent the damage to historical places by the visitors to such places many measures can be taken. There should be strict punishments, like high fines for the people who try to cause harm. There should be security personnel employed to ensure that no one tries to damage the historical places and along with that there should be security cameras installed to monitor the activities of the tourists. There can be tourist guides appointed, who also can ensure that no one causes any damage. 

6. Do you think too many tourists is a positive thing for historical attractions?

In my opinion having too many tourists has both advantages and disadvantages


1. It ensures that our history and culture is passed to the future generation

2. It brings revenue and business for the people of the city where the historical 

attraction is.


1. Too many tourists can cause damage to the historical attractions
