Slum tourism - good or bad (for IB08)

Next topic is settlements, and to connect with the previous tourism topic, here's a task that I would like to have a look at. Especially important since a Swedish woman was murdered in a slum just recently. She and her husband went into a Township at night, she was abducted and murdered.

It is becoming increasingly common and popular to take guided tours through slums, especially in Cape Town, Joburg, Rio, Nairobi and Bombay. The aim is to bring in tourism revenue and enhance the situation for the population of the slums. Read this article and discuss if slum tourism is good or a bad thing! http://www.victoriasafaris.com/kenyatours/kiberaslumtours.htm
