dc.description.abstract Slum tourism is one of the fastest-growing niche tourism segments in the world. Often consisting of affluent Westerners, slum tours are becoming more prominent in the Global South. It has only been a growing trend in the past two decades, but with publicity from a variety of films and movies, slum tourism is becoming a popular topic for debate. Its controversial nature strikes up the ethical dilemma: does slum tourism have educational value or voyeuristic intents? Typically, organized tour operators offer half day guided walking tours to interested tourists wishing to seek how the other half lives. Because slum tourism is such a new phenomenon, there is relatively little research or tourist generated statistics and records on the subject; however, the topic has grabbed the attention of academics and the general public alike. en_US
