Tourism is an important sector that contributes to the development of the regional economy. In addition to its economic contributions, tourism also has socio-cultural and environmental effects. These effects can be positive or negative. The level of perception of these effects by the local people is important for the development of regional tourism. Evaluating the racial, religious, linguistic and cultural differences of the local people and the way they perceive tourism plays an important role in the planning of tourism and the development of the region in terms of getting to know the local people.
