Tour Companies are making a killing for this `exotic' tour package but how does it become enjoyable to the tourist. Seeing children rummaging damp site for food? seeing individuals crying with pain? houses without walls? Sewers that run between meals ? ....and yet the locals are free to invite the tourist, who films and take photos of their degrading livelihood for a few shillings!
Some tourists and organizations have been beneficial in setting up facilities like schools, medical centres and self help groups but majority are just there for a laugh!
So what could be a good solution to slum tourism?
