What is Community-Based Tourism in Luang Prabang, Laos

Community –based Tourism (CBT) tries to empower local people to take advantage of tourism to use it to benefit their own lives. CBT often contains elements of ‘Responsible Tourism’ or ‘Sustainable Tourism’ -all of which to try to minimize the negative impacts of tourism on local people and the environment, and maximize their benefits from it.

In many cases, tourism does not benefit local people, too much money is spent on imported goods or with foreign tour operators and only urban areas see economic benefits. If poorly planned, tourism can also have considerable negative impacts on local people, for example, by taking over land and housing for tourism infrastructure, eroding social and cultural norms, or encouraging begging and prostitution.
