What often happens is that people ignore community participation so that the community is still the object of the implementation of development. Developing tourism potential in an area requires holistically good planning, community participation, and local wisdom. This study aims to examine community involvement in the development of tourist villages and formulate a model for developing tourist villages that prioritize community participation and local wisdom. This study uses a qualitative approach. It uses an ethnographic approach. The results showed that the development of tourism potential in Tasikmalaya, West Java, Indonesia, as a tourist destination was not optimal.
