Abstract

This study aimed to analyze the development of the integrated area of Bakauheni Harbor City (BHC) Lampung as an international tourism destination. This study used a qualitative approach. The results of the study indicated that currently the construction of BHC is in its early stages. In this initial development stage, the government seeks to maximize basic utilities such as sanitation, electricity, roads, and others. To realize the harbor city concept, it is estimated that it will take about 30 years. In the long term, the government is expected to remain in its commitment to building BHC into an international tourism destination. The government also needs to prepare a strategy to deal with several challenges. For example, the challenge in the socio-cultural field is to train the readiness of the surrounding community to deal with foreign cultures that will enter. The challenge in the economic field is to make the BHC area a driving force for the community's economy, to reduce inequality, and to improve regional infrastructure. Challenges in the environmental field are to realize sustainable tourism and challenges in the field of disaster, for example by carrying out disaster mitigation to deal with natural disasters such as tsunamis.
