Slum tourism is one of the newest and fastest growing niche tourism markets in the world that has seen growth only in the past two decades, mostly because of exposure from a range of films and movies which have made slum tourism a popular topic for debate. Slum tourism is also an under-researched topic, but has started to catch the attention of researchers and scholars in recent years. A slum, as defined by the UN Human Settlements Programme (2003), is a 'heavily populated urban area characterised by substandard housing and squalor'. Similarly, Ma defines it as "a run-down area of a city characterized by substandard housing and squalor and lacking in tenure security" (2010, p.3).
