Abstract

This paper discusses about finding the best possible route for self-drive tourism which focuses on road network using the goal programming method. The problem is formulated based on the model of a Travelling Salesman Problem (TSP). The model is constructed so as to connect all 19 tourism destinations in Langkawi by minimizing the travel times and travel costs. The study considers three model structures; each of them consists of three goal constraints which are subjected to four hard constraints. The results obtained from each model structure will be compared in order to get the most optimum route for the self-drive tourism. The results showed that the model structure that has the first priority of minimizing the total travel times, second priority of minimizing the travel cost and the third priority of minimizing the accommodation cost was the most suitable to used because this model structure gave the best result compared to other two model structures.
