Thailand and the fallout from mass tourism

  • Published 1 year ago

Thailand is one of the more popular countries for tourists. But there is a price to pay for tourism. While the country and its citizens earn money from tourism, the country suffers.
And we see the price visually. Plastic garbage, death of the coral reefs, and more show the downside of mass tourism in Thailand.
The country hosted more than 36 million visitors in 2018. This documentary looks at the effects of tourism on the country and the ecological consequences.
The countless hotels and restaurants in Thailand serve mainly fresh fish, meaning fishing boats use giant trawl nets destroying the coral.
