Reality Show

Whether called “slum tours,” “reality tours” or “poverty tours,” more and more travelers are interested in seeing the “real” parts of their foreign destination, beyond the manicured tourist traps they are expected to visit. While some call the practice exploitative and voyeuristic, others find the idea empowering for local residents who may profit from tourism.
