If the delights of Caribbean beaches, European cities or our National Parks have lost their appeal -- you could join the increasing number of tourists choosing to visit some of the world's poorest slums on their vacations.

The trend for tourists from wealthy countries to visit slums in countries like India, Brazil and South Africa has been steadily increasing over the last few years.

I learned about slum tourism while reading Paul Theroux's "The last Train to Zona Verde".
