You should spover about 40 minutes on this task.

Foreign visitors should pay more than local visitors for cultural & historical attractions. To what extent vì you agree or disagree with this opinion?

Give sầu reasons for your answer and include any relevant example from your own experience or knowledge. You should write at least 250 words. Model Answer 1: It is sometimes seen that tourist attractions, including museums, important historical sites & prominent monuments, impose a higher fee for the overseas travellers than the local people. I bởi vì not agree with this idea and believe that the charges should be exactly the same. From a perspective, it might seem logical khổng lồ charge foreign tourists more lớn enter a traditional và historical place as most of those monuments và establishments are state-owned & the government fund those from the tax they collect from the local residences. From this regard, many feel that local residences are already paying a portion of the ticket money through the tax they pay to lớn the government. However, this is a very narrow view & this arrangement dissatisfies the visiting tourists as many of them find it discriminatory. From a broader view, if more foreign travellers are encouraged lớn visit nationally important tourist attractions & important historical và cultural place, this would bring more foreign tourists và this would ensure more earning from the tourism sector. Furthermore, it would help spread the national and cultural importance around the world. From this perspective sầu, collecting some extra money from the entrance ticket is a shortsighted step. Furthermore, happy tourists encourage their immediate friends và family members to lớn visit a country và some tourist attractions. If those tourists get the impression that they are being changed more money than the local people, they would psychologically feel unhappy và would giới thiệu their dissatisfaction with others which would mean less foreign tourists. Many shrine and monuments are maintained by the ticket money it collects & if the number of visiting travelers get decreased, it would be tough for the authority to lớn maintain those important places. From this perspective sầu, having an equal entrance fee has a better impact. To conclude, from a broader perspective having the same ticket fee, both for the residence và foreign tourists, to lớn allow the entrance khổng lồ any nationally và historically important place including museums, art exhibitions, parks & historical places is more beneficial và I completely agree that the fee should not be different.
Sample Answer 2: Maybe everybody has experienced that they have lớn pay more in comparison to lớn local people to lớn enter a museum or zoo. For some people, it can be acceptable while others may dislike it very much. Some people advocate it while others may object it. In this essay, I will try to put myself in the position of both groups và discuss the cons and pros of each option. Firstly, when the foreign visitors pay more for a cultural và historical attraction, it will bring more income & economic benefits for the owners of that attraction (that thành phố, country etc.). Further, the more money is gathered through the attraction, the more service the provider can give to the tourists. They can use the money to improve the facilities offered to the tourists like translations in several languages, brochures, headphones (for listening translation). Moreover, they can educate local people about the attraction and hire them as tourist guides khổng lồ assist visitors lớn offer a better understanding of that attraction. On the other side, those who disagree with this opinion may say that this discrimination (that tourists must pay more than local people) may lead to a misunderstanding & they (the tourists) may think that the system is abusing them. This feeling of abusing may result in dissatisfaction & reduction in the number of tourists. Moreover, the less amount of tourist, the less income will be brought lớn the attraction. For instance, The British National Museum is không tính phí for everytoàn thân khổng lồ enter while the Louvre Museum in Paris costs a lot of money for visitors khổng lồ enter, và both have a lot of visitors each year. I believe sầu that the staff of each attraction must calculate the benefits & drawbacks of each measure (price difference in this case) & evaluate the consequences. To conclude, it is difficult to suggest "the golden solution" which will work out for every attraction. < Written by - Shahab Mehraban> Sample Answer 3: Some people think that tourists should pay more money lớn visit cultural và historical places than local residents. I vày not agree with this motion. In my opinion, local people and tourists should pay the same fee lớn visit museums và historical places. Firstly, if the government increases ticket price for tourists, the number of tourists who visit the country can decrease.

As a result, this situation affects the country's economy badly. Moreover, cultural và historical places symbolise a country's characteristics. Therefore, they are advertised for countries. If the figure of tourists declines the opportunities for adverts local restaurants & places will also get reduced. It is also bad for countries' economy. If more money is taken from the international tourists than the local visitors, the foreigners would feel discriminated và this might lead lớn dissatisfaction among mỏi them. Secondly, ticket price can be equal both for the local people and tourists because both of them have sầu a right to lớn visit cultural & historical places equally. To separate visitors in terms of their nationality is not a good sense and in my opinion unfair. Some countries are notorious for unfair ticket fees such as Turkey & Greece. For example, Topkapı palace is a very popular historical place in Turkey. It is visited by hundreds of thousands of people every year. It is very famous all over the world. However, according to lớn the news, which I have sầu read it recently, the number of foreign visitors is decreasing due to high ticket fees in Turkey. The price for tourists is four times higher than for local visitors in some museums in Turkey. Hence, many tourism agents criticise governments because of this. In conclusion, in my view, tourists và local visitors should pay the same money to lớn visit cultural and historical places. To increase ticket price for tourists in cultural và historical places does not enhance tourism income. By contrast, it can decrease it. Furthermore, I would argue that both local visitors and tourists have an equal right to lớn visit cultural và historical places. < Written by - Ahmet Tekin > Sample Answer 4: It has been a long time that countries all over the world are improving their tourism industry lớn boost their economy. So they are attracting foreign travellers to lớn come & see their cultural and historical attractions. However, the implementation of additional payment khổng lồ them more than the local tourists is unacceptable. This argument will be proven by looking at how improper this is because local government has subsidisation already & excursionists from other countries have sầu made contributions already. For one, imposing more charge to foreign visitors is objectionable because the local state has already subsidised its cultural tourism improvement. For instance, one of the new 7 wonders of nature in the world, the Puerkhổng lồ Princesa Underground River which is situated in Palawan, Philippines has been improved a lot through the help of not only the local administration of the province but also our national government. So all they have sầu lớn vị is lớn encourage more foreign tourists khổng lồ come and see the place. Therefore, there is no need for them khổng lồ pay extra fees khổng lồ see the beautiful cultural heritage of our country. In addition lớn this, travellers from other countries have sầu contributed too much money already when they visit a certain country. For example, the Philippine Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) is collecting 1500 pesos as a travel tax for every foreign excursionist, an equivalent of 50 USD. This is actually a lot of contributions collected by the Philippine government from them. Thus, it is very undesirable to charge them more for improving the countries historical attractions. In conclusion, it is disagreeable for the state of the Philippines to lớn collect more fees from visitors of other nations due to lớn the fact that it has subsidised its cultural & historical attractions và collecting airport tax already from them. So collecting more fees from these people is highly not recommended. < Written by - Romãng cầu Lyn Olivar >
