In the past, people used to travel to see the differences from their home country. However, the sceneries in places around the world seem similar nowadays. What are the causes of these similarities? Do you think that the advantages of these similarities outweigh the disadvantages? Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own experience or knowledge.
The main reason why people travel across the world to visit a new place is those different geographical areas have a variety of landscapes and natural resources, which can be striking.
Nevertheless, at present, there seems to be a resemblance of tourist destination places all over the world. There are probable causes of this similarity, and arguments are on the table whether the effect is good or bad.
To commence, currently, engineering and Architectural knowledge are highly developed not only this, the basic education is consistent throughout the world. As a result, the way buildings and other mega projects are made is becoming the same across the globe. Consequently, different settings appear to have homogeneous plans and structures. This could be the first factor why places on the opposite pole look the same. For example, the construction which was made after world war two in most parts of Europe is quite similar. The main difference they showed is the size, shape and colour; otherwise, the basic structures are similar.
Moreover, the materials used to make the infrastructures could be identical and other items like chairs, tables, boats, beds and so on; the indistinguishability of these tangible instruments will create a psychological sense of absence of diversification among the places. In fact, the competition to have quality setup and service is one way of improving the use of those resources, so it should be encouraged. In addition, the effect of globalization makes the world very narrow. Hence, People can travel anywhere in the world so fast that the farness and the distinction of places are becoming less prominent.
On the other hand, it is true that there are unmodifiable natural resources, for instance, lakes, waterfalls, mountains, Zoos and so on; therefore, whatever similar building is there in this setting, the unique features are visible.
To summarize, the effect of globalization and shared knowledge of engineering across the world are making heterogeneous landscapes appear similar, though it is not possible to mask all the distinct features of these places.
