Controversial Tourist Attractions

Controversial Tourist Attractions : "Here's a question to ask yourself when your travels veer off the beaten track into more controversial territory, such as the site of a great tragedy (Chernobyl) or act of inhumanity (Devil's Island). Is going there a valuable educational experience, one that forces you to confront the causes and consequences of a terrible event? Or is it morbid voyeurism, enabled and exploited by slick tour operators and T-shirt sellers?"
