Abstract

In the village of Kanonang; both Kanonang I and II have developed several types of creative businesses; such as souvenir selling in the form of t-shirts; hats and a few others as well as traveling photo services. The presence of traveling photographers is a new phenomenon in the effort to fulfill needs as well as part of offering services. With these services; there should be a study to find out the social; economic and cultural potential of the people in Kanonang I and II Villages in developing their creative economic endeavors. Therefore; the research objective is to find out what drives the emergence of various service businesses in Bukit Kasih; how the income obtained; and how the relationship with the service users is. This study used descriptive qualitative methods with quantitative and qualitative data analysis; namely by collecting; organizing; presenting; and interpreting the results of research as they were. The data obtained were analyzed using diagrams and tables so that the data can be read easily to find out the answer to the problem studied. The results of the study showed several factors affected the income of the community in the Bukit Kasih tourism area of Kanonang Village; including Low capital; remote location; inadequate and less varied merchandise type; the unfixed outflow of work time since it was adjusted to the presence of the visitor. Besides; lack of working experience and low education levels also affect the income. The number of visitors every year shows the external challenges where there is competition with other tourism sites and the issue of poor management. It is proven by many opinions of tourists who stated the need for improvement in the management of the Bukit Kasih tourism area.
