Abstract

Kampung Adat Takpala is one of the traditional villages that offers culture as a tourism potential. The tourism potential has not been well utilized by the Takpala community in increasing their growth. This is caused by weakness. For this reason, a community-based development strategy is needed. The purpose of this study was to determine the tourism potentials of the Takpala Traditional Village and also to find the development strategies that can be used in the Traditional Village of Takpala. In this study the method used is a descriptive qualitative method with direct observation and interviews of approved informants such as the Chief of the Takpala Customs, Village Heads, Community Leaders and the District Tourism Office Alor. Based on the results of the analysis using SWOT analysis techniques, it shows the existence of a new development strategy that can be used to build the Takpala Customary Village and to improve the quality of community human resources by using the principles of Community Based Tourism
