The Study of Creative Experience in Alamendah Tourism Village
This study aims to examine the creative experiences formed in the Alamendah Tourism Village from the perspective of tourists and destinations. The development of the creative economy in the Alamendah Tourism Village creates creative tourism potential in the village. The creation of authentic experiences is a fundamental characteristic of creative tourism. Therefore, in examining the creative experiences that are formed, this research refers to the inner-reflection and outer-interaction that are formed in the Alamendah Tourism Village. The method used in this study is a descriptive method with a qualitative approach. The participants in this study were Pokdarwis and tourism actors in the Alamendah Tourism Village and 25 tourists who had visited the Alamendah Tourism Village. The results of the study show that the elements forming the creative experience are very complex and the Alamendah Tourism Village almost fulfills all aspects. However, based on data findings, there are several aspects that are deemed not optimal, such as aspects of security, professionalism, and cleanliness.
