To explore this research topic, the study examines two key concepts which are community participation in the tourism development decision-making process and community participation in the sharing of tourism : Nur Ain Mispardi, Nur Raihan Ismail, Alfian Mohd Noor Affind.

Based on the notions of local participation, empowerment and conservation, several alternative forms of tourism emerged, such as community-based tourism (CBT), ecotourism and rural tourism. Throughout the years, a number of CBT projects have been implemented in developing countries, but their success has not been wide­ly monitored. The book investigates tourism as a form of globalization within the context of the island of Bali, which has been voted the world's top island destination for the third time running by American travellers. It takes off with the onset of the Asian Crisis, the largest stock-market crash since the Great Depression. The authors chart the turbulence that has afflicted the island at a time of market.
