THE DEVELOPMENT OF TOURISM DESTINATION LIFE CYCFLE IN INDONESIA Analysis Based on Macro Data of Statistic Centre Board, 2002-2012


The number of international tourists and foreign exchange received by Indonesia shows a positive trend in the late 10 years, but it does not portray enough the real growth of intra-regional tourism destinations. It can be supposed that this growth did not follow a linear life cycle of destination due to the specific characteristics of each region and the external factors of tourism industry itself. This study intends to explain the dynamics of growth of tourism destinations based on province area in the period of 2002-2012. The analysis focuses on the shift of the destination development and its causes. It will approached by the adoption of TALC model which has been already used by the researchers before. The descriptive methods was used to interpret the macro data published by BPS. The study finds out: a) a difference of the life cycle of the most tourism destinations; b) a 

 dynamics of up-and-down destination development; c) the unlinearity of the life cycle of tourism destination; d) the assumption difference of TALC model with the fact of the destination development phase in Indonesia. Therefore it is suggested, that: a) the real life cycle of tourism destination should be adopted as a basis for policy-making in destination development; b) a further study should be run by adding a comprehensive parameters of the destination development.

Kata Kunci: development, life-cycle, destination, tourism, province.
