Selfish Tourism 

To my knowledge, I have always respected the laws of the cities and countries that I have visited. Always. I have also respected the culture and traditions of the places that I have visited. 

I do not understand, nor accept, disrespect from tourists/travellers to the laws, culture, customs and traditions of the places they visit. 

Today, nine Australian males were arrested in Malaysia for stripping their clothes off and parading in public in budgie smugglers with the Malaysian flag on the bottom. And later today some people, both in Malaysia and Australia are suggesting that because the men were just having fun their law breaking should be excused. 

Nup. Disagree. 

There is no entitlement permitted in foreign countries if you are violating that country’s laws. Yep, may have just been having fun. Hope it was worth it.
