Culinary Tourism as a Strategy for Strengthening Tourism in the City of Yogyakarta,

Abstract - Yogyakarta City is a tourism destination that is characterized by city tourism, which offers City attractions that are packaged in various tourism packages. The Yogyakarta city is a buffer for nearby tourist destinations, which offer natural tourist attractions. Culinary tourism is the right strategy in developing tourism in the Yogyakarta city as an effort to create sustainable tourism, because it does not have the potential for nature tourism. This research is a qualitative descriptive study, which aims to explore the potential of culinary tourism to obtain a comprehensive picture of culinary tourism management in the Yogyakarta city as a basis for program formulation, strategic and action plans. Primary data are collected through group discussion forums to gather information from stakeholders, while data verification is done by means of quotation tests. Data were analyzed through the reduction process to produce priority programs and action plans to accelerate the development of culinary tourism in the Yogyakarta city.
