Economic Development Impacts of Backpacker Tourism in the Periphery : A Case Study of Lombok, Indonesia
AbstractInternational tourism is often perceived by LDC government planners as an engine of economic growth, but the focus is commonly mass tourism whilst ignoring backpackers. The case study of Lombok, Indonesia, indicates that the encouragement of backpacker tourism may alleviate some of the excesses of mass tourism. Backpacker tourism is compared with conventional mass tourism, discussing the leakage of foreign exchange earnings, issues of local control and ownership, and the political economy of who gains/looses from tourism in LDCs.
