In this paper, we used questionnaires which were designed according the 5 Likert scale to gather informations about the residentâ€™s attitudes (400 samples) towards tourism development in the study area. Next step, we used SPSS to analyze the survey data, and verify the reliability of the samples. Finally, we used GIS as a suported tool to analyse the spatial distribution of residentâ€™s attitudes towards tourism development. The result showed that urban communities had more negative attitudes toward tourism development than rural communites.
