Nowadays there are huge arguments between city development and conserving the past: some say old buildings should be replaced with modern buildings and shopping malls, because more money can be made from these developments. Some would argue that these valuable heritage sites should be preserved. In my opinion, historical heritage should be preserved as much as possible. People claim that conserving the past has been portrayed as the alternative to economic development: either we have historic preservation, or we have economic growth. Their excuse for reconstructing the whole district is that it can create jobs and boost local economy by changing it into a more profitable land use, but actually preserving heritage by restoration can also create job opportunities. It is a high potential market to develop, because there are always valuable historic buildings and sites need to be preserved within the city, it even create more jobs than normal construction.
PRESERVING OUR CULTURAL HERITAGE
Preserving our heritage
Culture is the backbone of every nation around the world. It was developed naturally in the life of every human being. Cultures are not developed over a decade or century but it requires thousands of years of practice to be considered as the tradition and culture of a particular place or a country. Some of the unique cultures are blessed and founded by the great enlightened beings.

Each World Heritage Site should have a management plan that deals with entry charges, potential damage to the heritage resources, congestion, reduction of visitors at peak times and dealing with specific types of visitors. World Heritage Sites act as a magnet for visitors because it is believed that World Heritage listing increases visitor numbers. However tourism, especially excessive tourism at some of the World Heritage Sites place great deals of physical pressure on the sites and possible emotional pressures on the surrounding communities. It is therefore necessary that if a specific site is given World Heritage status that it is to be maintained and remain accessible to current and future generations.
