Move over eco-tourism, tsunami tourism is here

The Tamil Nadu government, in India, is considering options to turn tsunami-affected villages into memorials of the disaster that killed thousands along the Indian coast on December 26, 2004.

The aim is to preserve the memories of pre-tsunami days and educate visitors about the devastating impact the disaster had on these places. Tsunami tourism will also prevent these places from being completely forgotten. (Link)
