1. cleanliness
2. proper and regular maintainance
3. avoiding the misuse of tourists places, Ex: washing clothes, pooping, housing, etc.
4. Restricting the street animals.
3. creating standard costs so that no localite could cheat tourists on the name of traditions and culture.
4. opening govt. food courts around tourists places. This could prevent local vendors from overpricing.
5. connecting them locally as well as centrally with transport facilities.
