Homestays are offered for tourists who want to spend the night naturally, enjoy daily life with the local culture of the destination visited with all the facilities which of course can meet the needs of traveling. Residential home owners try to become property entrepreneurs by understanding the management of the property business through innovation capabilities that transform residential homes into homestays. The needs of tourists in choosing homestay accommodation are different from hotels or villas or bungalows, preferring to enjoy a homely atmosphere by getting memories and local experiences in tourist destination areas. Residential homeowners will seek information regarding home repairs and the physical availability of residential homes, arrange schedules, and need to study property management in collaboration with residential developers. So this study aims to determine the innovation ability of homestay property developers who are considered influential in increasing business through the dimensions of technology development, operational capabilities, managerial routines and property transactions. This descriptive research with quantitative and qualitative approaches uses triangulation data collection techniques and is statistically analyzed using Partial Least Square. It is important for homestay business owners to find building developers who can repair or rearrange buildings who have the ability to innovate in the property business. The results of measurements from residential home owners and property developers in tourist destinations show that the dimensions of strong property innovation capabilities are innovation capabilities in management and routine operations, while the dimensions of innovation capabilities that still have weaknesses are innovation capabilities in technology development and transactions.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><strong>Keywords:</strong> Innovation capability; homestays ; Property Business.</p> Katharina Priyatiningsih Copyright (c) 2022 International Journal of Sustainable Competitiveness on Tourism Tue, 27 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000 THE IMPLEMENTATION OF EDUCATIONAL TOURISM DEVELOPMENT BY DINAS KEPEMUDAAN OLAHRAGA PARIWISATA DAN KEBUDAYAAN KABUPATEN PURWAKARTA <p>Purwakarta Regency tries to build tourism through educational tours that can be obtained from several museums.

There are limited studies on the opportunities and challenges of tourism micro-business, especially those related to managing dried or salted fish. This study aims to 1) identify opportunities and challenges in managing the micro-business of dried fish; 2) analyse the sustainability factors of the micro-business of dried fish in the context of tourism; 3) propose a tourism micro-business management strategy. This study employs a qualitative approach by conducting field visits at dried fish sales locations in Barru regency in August and September 2022. The study reveals that the micro-business opportunity of dried fish could be an education-based tourism product. Educational tourism provides opportunities for tourists to learn about fishery products, the management of dried fish products, and sales to consumption by tourists. The challenges of micro-business are; managing and selling dried fish with the principles of hygiene and sanitation, decreasing sales, fish product packaging, understanding customer service; providing information on dried fish products; and product innovation. The decreasing number of dried fish sales can affect the sustainability of the dried fish micro business. Therefore, the stakeholders' role can help sustain the dried fish micro-business. This study proposes approaches for tourism micro-business management on the perspective of push and pull factors. Academics use the concept of push and pull factors in assessing tourist motivation. However, push and pull factors are also helpful in analysing micro-business management in the tourism sector.</p> Ilham Junaid Copyright (c) 2022 International Journal of Sustainable Competitiveness on Tourism Wed, 28 Dec 2022 00:00:00 +0000 YOGYAKARTA CITY AS A SMART DESTINATION TOURIST <p>The application of smart cities has become a trend in regional planning in Indonesia.
