Mass tourism or preservation?

The caption reads: "Last week Vietnam's Prime Minister announced his support for a highly controversial plan to build a cable car into Hang En, the world's third-largest cave, in Phong Nha-Ke Bang National Park. I hiked into the cave in central Vietnam earlier this year on a reporting trip, and it is staggering. The thought of a company ramming a cable car into it in the name of mass tourism is sickening. I continue to be amazed by the short-sightedness of planners here". Photo by mike_tatarski on Instagram.

"When dealing with busy situations, one of the best way to simplify the composition is to use a simple background, in that case the sky. It allows the photographer to add more layers and compose a more interesting image while keeping it simple." Photo taken in Hoi An by picsofasia on Instagram.
