    Tourism is still booming as one of the largest industries around the world. It boosts the economic growth of a country while providing potential job creation for residents. For instance, by estimating to serve approximately about 15.6 million foreign tourists and about 80 million domestic travelers, Vietnam generate receives 620 trillion VND (26.66 billion USD) in tourism and a rise of more than 25 thousand employees per years.
    From another angle, tourism can also have many negative impacts on the quality of life. One of them is that it leads to the overcrowding on such places as Barcelona, Venice and Spain. Venice, a city of 60 000 people, welcomes nearly 30 million visitors a year, that 76000 tourists a day. Spain welcomed over 82 million travelers in 2017 with 9 million visiting Barcelona alone. Even, CNN 10 reported on 28 of May, there were a significant rise in the number of hiker climbing Mount Everest, which led to traffic jams on the climbing path.

    BREAK-UP (May 12, 2019)

    (11:31:39 AM 10/05/2019)

    Break-ups seem no strange to me  at all. In reality, I have gone through many minor break-ups and a huge  break-up in my life, thanks to each of which my life turned a new leaf.
      Recently, the high-profile divorce (a huge break-up) between the famous  Trung Nguyen couple shocked the public and I contemplated the high  possibilities of break-ups in a person’s life.  Solid and stable as any relationship seems, no one can anticipate  coming changes, many of which are toxic to your relationships.
      Your  boyfriend meets and falls for someone prettier. Your girlfriend may  want to go her own way after the graduation when she was approached by a  more mature and highly educated man. Your spouse is too hurtful to put  up with your infidelity or your thoughtlessness (lack of care for  women’s emotional needs) kills every piece of love day by day. In many  cases, break-ups are inescapable.
      I heard many stories of girls or  boys torturing or killing themselves after break-ups with their partner.  What they leave behind are heart-broken parents and unfulfilled dreams  to build a bright life ahead. On the other hand, many people choose to  move on with an intense aspiration to be more successful and more  devoted to their life goal.
      I myself chose the second option.  Break-ups are of course painful to everyone, but putting them down to  experience and thanking them for encouraging your self-improvement may  definitely lead you to an even fruitful relationship in the future. What  do you think?
      Come to Advance Hanoi this Sunday to discuss this  interesting topic and enjoy a typical joyful Sunday with tea break and  dinner.
     
    QUESTIONS TO PONDER:

     1. What are possible causes of  break-up in love? How are they different from the causes of break-ups in  marriages? Many people attribute most break-ups to financial problems.  Do you think finance matters much?
     2. What instils a man to break up  with his partner? How is it different from the causes of a woman  wishing to break up with her guy?
     3. Vietnamese married couples  many years ago used to be fear break-up, but now things have changed.  What do you think these changes are?
     4. Break-ups are more painful to girls/women than boys/men. How do you find this statement?
     5. In some cases, break-ups are beneficial to both. What are the signs of a positive break-up?
     6. Why do you think many people can hardly get over their break-up?  What should they do to build more resilience to break-ups? What lessons  should they learn from a break-up?
