Community-based Tourism (CBT) is probably the oldest way of conducting tourism. So, what exactly is it all about? In Indonesia it’s better known as Desa Wisata.
It’s a form of responsible tourism that supports local communities and improves livelihoods. The tourism destination is managed by the local community members themselves.
CBT revs up local economies, creates jobs, and generates entrepreneurial opportunities for local communities through the development of community-owned and managed lodges or homestays.
Let’s learn more about it from Desa Wisata Cibuntu.
