A special tourism branch is tourism in straw, where the wealthy pay to visit the quarters where the poorest live and see children playing on a polluted river, sleeping in a cemetery, feeding from a landfill, not attending schools.  

This type of tourism has divided the public where one claims it is cruel, but positively because it draws attention to those who need help.   In that aspect, some of the travel agencies allocate even 80% of the earnings assigned to them, ghettos, quarters, favelas, etc. Others argue that the move is a dehumanized practice.  

Some sociologists, however, say that tourist tours are not political, historical, and sociological, but that poverty in this way is romanticized and ridiculed.  

Some agencies of wealthy tourists are offered the opportunity to see how tens of thousands of people collect, recycle, select and re-produce plastics where the site suffocates in toxic waste. Just like collecting secondary raw materials and waste to survive.  

Attractive to the rich, but cruel and inhuman to the poorest.
