Another piece about slum tourism’s development was recently published on Youtube. This time it highlights the phenomenon in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Though I don’t like the typically polarised opinions about slum tourism’s issues of concern, content like this helps to raise awareness about the phenomenon.
The video description is:
Poverty tourism is gaining ground in Indonesia with more tourists looking to “experience the real Jakarta”. But while this brings more funds to the city’s impoverished slum-dwellers, accusations of exploitation are not far behind.
