Tourism is a major industry in Southeast Asia, with over 100 milion tourists arrivals annually (pre-Covid)

Southeast Asia has traditionally been a popular destination because of its diverse tourist attractions, good travel connections and compartively-low prices. Besides beaches and friendly people, there are plenty of cultural tourist attractions across Southeast Asia, including Unesco World Heritage sites and museums. Tourism is a major industry in Southeast Asia, and the effects of Covid-19 is particularly hard in the region where tourism accounts for roughly 10% of total GDP. As tourism picks up again, sustainable tourism and the proper management of archaeological sites remain a concern, as does instances of tourists behaving badly at cultural sites.
