Battlefield tourism is different from other sightseeing. In most of the case, tourist attractions are there just for fun or for sale.
But historical sites such as battlefields and palaces, are different from Disneyland.
Because the latter place was made for commercial reasons, to sell and the former was made by certain situation, like a battle or reinforcement of the country so we can say that these are part of our lives, our history.
Going to the battlefield spot is not for fun but for understanding our history. So we must have different attitude.
You could expect just fun and nice photo when you are going to Disneyland, but you have to remind our history and ancestors when you are going to have battlefield tourism
