Languages of publication



The Government of Garut District launched the priority of 10 tourist destinations' development program to be more comfortable and secure based on the visits rate assessment results and a promising tourism potential to many visitors. This report aims to determine the implementation of tourism development policies in Garut District, which were reviewed with the criteria approach, namely attraction, accessibility, and amenities. This reporting approaches describe the implementation of tourism development policies in the Garut District. The results show the implementation of tourism development policies in Garut District has been going well even though several problems still exist. Some of the problems identified include accessibility that is still not very supportive, such as the road to the location of tourism being relatively small. Facilities and infrastructure in tourism objects have not been appropriately managed due to budget constraints, as well as the low awareness of the public about the culture of tourism awareness and the tourism benefits.
