Abstract

Tourism has been a driving force of economic development and has become the leading economic sector in Bali Province. However, the economic impacts of tourism development have not been fully beneficial for the Balinese community. Tourists’ expenditure has not been totally remaining in Bali’s economy. Some of the expenditures by tourists leak out of the destination, called tourism leakage, in the form of payments for imported products and services, payment of wages for foreign employees, and profits transferred to foreign owners. So far, the amount of tourism leakage in Bali has not been calculated. Therefore, there is a need to ascertain the current amount of leakage in Bali tourism. This paper estimates the amount of tourism leakage from the accommodation sector in Bali through a micro analysis at the industrial level. There were 79 hotels selected as a sample based upon a purposive probability to size sampling method in four main tourist destinations in Bali, namely Kuta, Nusa Dua, Sanur and Ubud. Four types of accommodation were considered in estimating tourism leakage. The results showed that the highest percentage of leakage was in the 4 & 5 Star-rated chain hotels, i.e. 51.0 % of total revenue. It was followed by the 4 & 5 Star-rated non-chain hotels (22.7 %), and 1, 2 & 3 Star-rated hotels (12.0 %). Meanwhile, the lowest leakage was on the Non star-rated hotels (8.8 %). Overall, the average tourism leakage on accommodation sector in Bali was 18.8 %. These results indicate that (i) the higher the level of hotel classifications, the more leakage will be; and (ii) accommodation which was owned by a foreigner and/or managed by an international chain had more leakage than other types of accommodation. The more leakage, therefore the less revenue from tourism will be directly received by hotel and undirectly by the local community as tourism is the main source of economic development of Bali Province.

Abstract

This study attempts to develop a tourist relationship management (TRM) framework by assimilating assorted dimensions. The basic foundation of the TRM framework will be rested on customer relationship management (CRM) model with justified addition of dimensions compatible to tourism dynamics. Further to this the study examines the intervening effects of modified relationship dimensions on service quality perception-tourist satisfaction-destination loyalty link. The study confirmed convergence of dimensions to justify TRM framework with adequate internal reliability and validity of the scale and further revealed that perceived tourist service quality; tourist satisfaction and destination loyalty can be colinked under the intervening effects of TRM dimensional performance. The default model also holds good to lend support to the theoretical findings.

Abstract

Tourism has not yet been recognized as an industry in Bangladesh. There is a great dearth of studies to understand the significance of this sector to the nation. This study is a pioneer effort of its kind to evaluate the services of the Patenga Beach offered to its visitors. A total of 400 visitors were interviewed using a predesigned questionnaire. The study reveals that the maximum willingness to pay for entering into the beach without any reduction in the number of trips was BDT 475.69 inclusive of a beach entrance fee of BDT 100 (USD 1.25) per visitor. The study suggests that if the beach had well-planned facilities for the beach goers, they are willing to pay more for the development of the beach.

Abstract

Mass tourism is criticized because it jeopardizes environment, economic, socio-integrity of tourism destinations, and it can lead to impoverishment of local societies. Ecotourism emerges as an alternative of tourism which is more environmentally friendly and offers inclusion of social responsibility. This research aims to assess whether the ecotourism practices in disaster-prone conservation area fulfil the ideal ecotourism criteria and to explain the importance of governance in realising ecotourism practices. The result showed that ecotourism practices in the Merapi area are insufficient to fulfil ideal ecotourism criteria. It is found that quality of communication and collaboration, political views and character of planning (reactive or adaptive) determine the practice of ecotourism.

The community’s capacity to facilitate resource related conflicts has improved following support from development institutions and facilities provided by the organization. An expanding livelihood base is reducing local vulnerability to disaster and man-animal conflicts. The numbers of inhabitant wildlife species in the park have increased due to adequate protection and reduce frequency of livestock in nearby villagers.
