Tourism has been bringing a number of benefits for the people of the society and the economy across nations. The increased activities of tourism in Malaysia contributes in creating jobs, both by directly employing in the industry of tourism and in an indirect manner in a number of different sectors like transportation and retail (Jackson, 2008). These investments made by tourists in visiting Malaysia contribute in imposing the multiplier impact that creates more number of jobs for the local population living in Malaysia. The industry and activities of tourism has also been providing a number of different opportunities to small and medium scale business organization that can be exploited by them for availing many competitive advantages and generation of profits.
However, it is important to note that successfully performing activities of tourism are highly reliable over the establishment of a basic infrastructure like hotels, centers, visitors and roads. This amount of this cost almost ends up falling over the government, so it ends up coming out of the revenues of tax. The sector of tourism is considered as a relevant sector in the economy of Malaysia (Mbaiwa, 2003). This sector is being promoted by a number of highly intensified efforts all across the globe. However, the success stories in the sector of tourism across a number of nations across the globe that include Malaysia, are measured in terms of cents and dollars or particularly by the population of tourists arriving at the destination, and the amount of income brought by them. There is no denial in the fact that tourism contributes in generating additional or optional amount of income for the people (Jackson, 2008). However, while people go and come, their presence in the locations being visited by them are known to be having a significantly permanent effect. The industry of tourism in the economy of Malaysia has been running on a double- edged sword. At a continuous speed, islands in Malaysia are known to be well- developed destination for tourists that has been attracting a number of tourists on annual basis. There are highly developed luxury resorts, bungalows and Chalets along the lines of coast over famous islands such as Pangkor, Langkawi, Redang, and Tioman (Jackson, 2008). Hence, it is evident that tourism has been bringing changes to both, physical and social environments of the population living in the area.
