Pemberdayaan Masyarakat Melalui Pengembangan Potensi Destinasi Wisata Sebagai Desa Wisata di Kabupaten Bintan
Tourism in Bintan Regency, Riau Islands is designated as one of the economic sectors as the largest foreign exchange earner for the region. Bintan Regency has tourism potential that can be developed into a tourist village that aims to improve the welfare of the people of Bintan Regency. Community Empowerment was carried out by Dagong 3, Malang Village, Meeting, Gunung Kijang District, Bintan Regency. The Dagong 3 tourist destination was chosen as a community empowerment activity because Dagong 3 is a tourist destination built by the Bintan Regency Government. Community Empowerment is expected to be able to contribute to the economic progress of the surrounding community, by carrying out activities to provide insight and assistance to the community about tourist destinations. The problem is that the Dagong 3 tourist destination has not functioned as expected, in addition to the potential of underwater natural resources, as well as beaches and tourism with culinary. The results of community empowerment carried out in the Malang Tourism Village Meeting, Gunung Kijang District, Bintan Regency so far have not been able to contribute to the economy of the village community. For that we need human resources who have skills and competencies, it is necessary to hold training for the surrounding or local community to increase knowledge in the field of tourism industry.
