About This Book

First published as a zine in response to the limitations of mainstream travel magazines, Sociology of Tourism is a hand-sewn chapbook that explores the impact of tourism on societies and cultures, an issue that is too serious and sensitive to be pursued in advertising-driven travel magazines. Taking readers on a sometimes uncomfortable tour of various cities in Asia, including Bangkok, Hong Kong and Singapore, Sociology of Tourism is filled with vignettes illustrating the gentrification of historical neighbourhoods, the commodification of culture and the transient yet transactional relationship between locals and travellers.
