Different kinds of amenities and tourist attraction sites enhance tourism. Such include public art, constructions, and structures with uniqueness and distinction as well as cultures and communities of different ethnicities (Giaoutzi, 2017).

For instance, UNWTO not only vouches for tourism but for tourism that has different aspects and interests such as tourism that promotes respect among humanity (Poudel, 2016).
