The Secret Behind Tourism

Isn't it a tensing moment when we hear on 'Sex Tourism, an emerging vulnerability' for a small Himalayan kingdom? I am honestly confused why this kind of life culture which is not supposed to take place is on rise, on demand all around. Is it simply for the income or for the survival or simply for the kinds?
So, if these activities going to place then let’s not say we're the only Buddhist nation, survived without any external social customs. By looking at the facts mentioned I'm little hanged on 'how Bhutan would be just in few years of time from now'. 

According to the survey released on 'Sex Tourism' Bhutan had faced several instances where many are into sex offerings business. Although we become too much dependent on western life style yet it is not a wise step that country like ours can take part in such activities. Therefore, if this continues to happen the future of our country will be at threat.  

As it was very evidently reflected that Bhutan's tourism is more into 'sex destination' and to the facts I am thoroughly confused whether it is for human exploitation or tourism expansion in itself. Therefore, looking at the study released I could see living culture forced more into undesirable scene, more vulnerable into sex offerings rather than country's tourism. 

So, for many the costs of living a life through sex exploitation have become more like a business and to this 'Tourism Council of Bhutan' is a sole responsible agency and should cut-off this activities from the root before it ruins oneself and the nation. I think many of the causes would be just happening in the name of getting more numbers of foreign tourists who can deposit huge sum of income. But, what about the life when this group of foreigners leaves the country, 'is it possible to support one's life thereafter'.  Although, there are many who likes the idea of having this culture but this aren't the solution to live a life.  

Although, no exact figures are available, but the trend is reported to be wild in the tourism industry time and again. Of course, tourism is the only sector that generates huge revenue for the country but it also becoming a risky business behind, for a long run.  How far should we prolong on this statement 'Tourists are preferred due to the monetary incentive and so on for Bhutan'?

Other emerging exposures, according to the study are commercial sex workers on rise, which include many young girls born to different diseases related to open sex business. 

Study also stated that with various categories of sex workers are involved and the profession was slowly becoming well organized and to a more professional that needed to be root out. It also stated that single women are picked up by different customers from bars and discotheques which in turn is a huge risk to the country.

How easily 'Bhutan Tourism Industry' allow foreigners to visit the country even after knowing that the in-coming tourists who demands for a female guides and escorts during their stay in the country? Isn't it funny and demanding? How foolish are we as a nation? Is it possible to buy a life through the money one gets through this activity? In the name of little income we are risking our own life and history of Bhutan. Therefore, if these are all true, it needed to be monitored as it could lead to bigger issues in future.

Let's put a stop to this 'social attack' all together before it becomes an issue which in turn can ruin our society from outside wave and to allow this to ruin is a national infamy.
