Indonesia has many excellent tourism fields, which brought visitors both domestic and foreign. Borobudur Temple has been a significant tourist destination in Indonesia. Since the official public opening of Borobudur Temple in 1983 and its establishment as a World Heritage Site in 1991, it has brought many international tourists. Global tourism has simultaneously introduced to the vernacular community in villages around the temple. This paper elaborates on the challenges of vernacular lives faced by the rural inhabitants in dealing with the influences of global tourism from the viewpoint of economy, environment, and culture. This study takes Giritengah Village, Borobudur, Magelang, Indonesia as the case study. It is a village located in the Borobudur Temple’s surroundings. This research uses a qualitative method with observation, interviews, cultural mapping, and literature study as the data collection method. Research results showed that Giritengah Village inhabitants received direct and indirect influences from tourism activities in the area. As a result, their vernacular lives face some challenges. From the economic viewpoint, there are some opportunities to work in the tourism sectors, but then causes young generations less interested in working as farmers. From the viewpoint of the environment, there are some challenges on land-use transformation, waste management, and the importance of preparing a disaster mitigation system. From the socio-cultural viewpoint, interaction with the outsiders has influenced the mindset and lifestyle of the villagers, moreover who live in the lower hamlets which have easier access. The other hamlets which are in the upper area, seem stronger in conserving the local tradition.
