Tourism has something paradoxical. On the one hand, it is an important source of income and a good generator of employment for a country like ours, which relies heavily on the tertiary sector. On the other hand, the authenticity of the area that receives visitors in a massive way remains. Business, catering, etc. Are modified to please the strangers and the native population is being displaced by the transformation of residential areas by the proliferation of reconverted apartments that are rented through platforms such as Airbnb.

The phenomenon , therefore , implies an important impact for the inhabitants , and it is normal that they appear frictions that take off of hiccup the natives. A recent thread from Reddit has asked, precisely, people accustomed to coexist with tourists what is the most irritating of their customs.
