Tourism industry is growing by leaps and bounds with each passing day. As a result of this, many people consider frequent travelling to different nations to learn their varied cultural heritage since personal interactions with the local people are essential for experiencing the taste of new cultures

Travelling to other nations to learn about their cultures and rituals offers distinct advantages over studying about them through the internet and television shows. Travelling allows an individual experience the cultural elements such as food, clothing, and rituals along with geography, history and politics of a country closely.

These festivals are not only a good learning experience for the tourists, but also give them a real time feel of the traditional values of the local population.

Conclusively, In conclusion, I strongly feel that though the internet and travel shows on television provide a good source of information for the cultural traditions around the world, it is no match to the experiences gained through tourism due to its (One pronoun refer to two different nouns. The first it refers to the internet and television shows, the latter its refers to tourism.) far reaching effects on one’s memories. Moreover, personal interactions with the local population and participation in the traditional festivals helps to develop better understanding between people of different communities and thus bridges the cultural gaps that exists between them. (Clearly expressed and explained your opinion. Good job!)
