      Tourism can be viewed as one aspect of globalisation which has captured
      the world’s attention in the late 20th century and the new millennium. On
      the other hand globalisation has presented opportunities for countries to
      promote their cultures internationally through various means, such as
      tourism. At the same time, globalisation has also produced the opportunity
      for tourism to exist on a large scale, which has made the international
      promotion of a culture possible to exist. As a result of globalisation and
      tourism development, many problems may emerge, for example: changed
      patterns of land use; a universal pattern of design, construction and
      material use; inappropriate uses of the gridiron systems of planning;
      wasteful patterns of social consumption; the rise of a corporate culture;
      and the development of environmental problems. The problems are
      self-evident. The effects are illustrated in every aspect of physical form
      that closely ties into the social and cultural changes. The classic
      example is the disappearance of vernacular practices of construction; of
      materials and methods that are specific to their culture and environment.

      Therefore, how can planning contribute to recovery from and adjustment to
      the current problems as well as avoid unintended consequences of tourism
      development in the future? What are strategic planning agendas at the
      national, regional and local level for adjusting to the current tourism
      development in a particular destination? How can the agendas be
      institutionalized to assure their realization? What lesson can be
      distilled from the current challenges in global tourism for planning
      education and research in developed and less developed countries?
      This International Conference on Urban, Regional Planning is seek to know
      the answer of the question by providing forum for the presentation of new
      advances and research results in the fields of theoretical, experimental,
      and applied Urban and Regional Planning. The conference will bring
      together leading researchers and scientists in the domain of interest
      forum around the domain of interest from around the world.
