All-Inclusive Resorts: Culture or No Culture?

Jump to last reply

Hi,
I am in my fourth year at the University of Western Ontario working towards a certificate in professional writing. I am currently enrolled in a course focusing on writing for publications. I am writing a feature article focused on the "wall" that many tropical resorts create between what can be found inside them in comparison to the surrounding authentic culture. If you have any thoughts or opinions on this idea, I would love to hear from you. That is - if you've ever felt like the resort was North Americanized, and if you have, what type of measures you've had to take in order to feel like you are truly experiencing a new culture. Further, on the assumption that many of you have travelled to at least a few resorts, if you found any similarities or differences in the ways culture is presented.

Thank you for your time and I appreciate your shared thoughts.

I must also request a name and e-mail of the respondent - as my professor requires a reference list for my sources.

Thanks again,

smerki
