This book investigates the impact of mass tourism on local communities and family life. The survey was conducted during the Nineties in the Monatfon region in the Vorarlbergian Alps, Austria. The findings suggest that evidently in intensive tourist region economic considerations are presiding over all other social, cultural and environmental issues. Restaurants are closed down outside the tourist season; the number of places where local people can be amongst themselves becomes more and more confined. Local cultural heritage becomes lost. There is just little time for the family and friends. Children are suffering most under these distresses.
