Tourism is a huge global industry which is having a major impact on the economy, culture and environment of many different countries. Five films explore examples from across the world.
FILM 1 CHINA:
High up in the Himalayas, a poor Chinese community has called itself "Shangri-La" and is looking to tourism to boost its economy. Visitor numbers are growing - but both the wildlife and culture of the region are under threat.
FILM 2 USA:
Alaska's sleepy fishing villages all but died when its gold rush ended 100 years ago. Now they're being overwhelmed by hordes of cruise ship tourists. It's a boost to the economy but critics fear the impact on Alaska's environment and culture.
FILM 3 NEPAL:
Every year 300,000 people come to Nepal to trek in the famous mountaineering country of the Everest National Park. But with them come deforestation, soil erosion and piles of rubbish. Will forcing the mountaineers to pay fees solve the problem?
FILM 4 DUBAI:
Dubai once depended on income from its oil. Now tourism in this desert kingdom is booming. But what about the cultural and environmental price? Developers have built a ski-resort in the desert, complete with 6,000 tons of real snow. Is this the face of modern tourism?
FILM 5: AFRICA:
Gorillas are under threat - and many of their problems are caused by humans. But in the heart of Central Africa, ironically, tourism is helping to keep them alive. Eco-tourists pay high prices to see this endangered species.
