I have no idea about my essay about traditional culture which I wrote for an mock IELTS .
Some people think that cultural traditions will be destroyed when they are used as money-making machines aims at tourists, other people believe that it is the only way to save such traditions in the world today. Discuss both sides and give your own opinion.
Culture globalization has not only caused culture exchanges but also boosted international tourist industry' development. As more local people use their traditional cultural heritage to earn a living, which results cultural loss, some people believed. In fact, if nobody would use culture to make money, it would vanish from the world early or later, so we cannot avoid using cultural heritage to make money, but we should not give economic rewards the highest priority.
We have to admit that crazily squeeze money from traditional culture has brought negative imapct on culture itself. Many cities in China which have their own special culture are always willing to boom up thier tourist industry, thier actions usually cause environmental pollution. Also, some local citizens use dirty ways to explore its profit, they may cheat tourists selling souvenirs in extremely high prize, it is their wrong value which regards culture as money-making machine leads to this result.
However, the advantages are still over weigh than side effects. Recently, government makes laws to control the tourist industry, which reduces illegal behaviors, at the same time funds have been set up to restore the environment, there is no need for us, citizens to worry about. Besides with government's investment in culture not only endangered traditions can be rescued but also can improve us living standard, we are richer than before. If we forbid anyone to make money from culture, which means that no expenditure is used, as a result, culture is going to die out with no public attentiins.
In conclusion, it is the best way to save our traditions through ecnomic ways but we must use resource properly, so that we can get benifit from heritages and save them at the same time.
