My guess here is “evil” is the ecological impact of travel. High CO2 outputs from aircraft and prolonged automobile travel.

The rebuttal is: take lower carbon impact travel options.

IMO, traveling is inevitable and, maybe, necessary. There are few other ways to experience a culture and understand a people without it.

But that’s a problem related to transportation in general. Not due to tourism. Aside from that we really need to switch out current ways of transportation to better, safer and clean ones.

But a country based on tourism is normally lacking a lot of support for their civilians.

Some countries try to seduce a lot of tourism making it a mess on local places, a lot of dirty, scams and drunk people (depends on which place).

An economy based on tourism is always bad for many, multiple things, like any future new pandemic or animals and insects invading places where they don’t have predators.

I live in one of those countries. I can confirm. Also not having a diverse economy can be a a big trouble. Obviusly an economy purely based on tourism would suck. But that does not make tourism itself bad. Traveling is an enriching experience.

Edit: fixed a typo.
