IELTS Part 3 questions about tourism / tourists / travel industryIELTS Speaking Test Part 3 Discussion Questions
Do you think the tourist industry is a good industry to work in for young people in your country?
Tourism seems to be a booming industry in many countries so it can provide many opportunities for young people, either short-term or long-term depending on what they are specifically looking for.
I think if a young person is serious about building a career within the tourism industry, it can provide good opportunities as more and more people are travelling nowadays and visiting places outside their own countries so the future of tourism in general looks to be a healthy one in terms of employment prospects.
Should there be any restrictions on the travel business?
Should there be any restrictions on the tourism industry?
When a certain location becomes extremely popular with tourists it can change the local culture and impact life for the native inhabitants. It can affect prices, transport and congestion.
There’s also the question of construction of new hotels and other tourist accommodation which can impact on the local landscape. This should be controlled so that the development of tourism in an area is carried out in a positive way with no negative consequences for the local people.
Should there be any restrictions on business travel?
Apart from that, business travel also means supporting a whole range of commercial activities as part of the process; hotels, restaurants, car hire, taxis and other service providers all benefit from business travellers.
