Abstract [en]

The article considers impacts of the drinking patterns of touristsfrom high-consumption, high-income societies on low- and middleincomesocieties, thematically reviewing a rather sparse literature.Drinking – indeed, drinking more than at home – fits well into thecontext of tourism. Heavy drinking by tourists has a substantialimpact on many elements in the host society, increasing consumptionlevels particularly among young people working within the tourismsector. Tourist industry interests have often successfully argued forpolicies that result in a wider general availability of alcohol in thesociety, and provision for tourists has often served as an entry pointin the society for the global alcohol industry. National andinternational consideration of policies to reduce alcohol problemsshould take into consideration the potential adverse influences onnational alcohol policies arising from tourism.
