Abstract

This study explores the emergence and possibilities of sustainable community participation in the homestay program as a new approach in the tourism industry in Malaysia. This study focusses on the assessing the relationship between community participation, attitude and sustainable development in the homestay program. This research uses a path-model survey to acquire the causal relationships and multiple regressions to verify the adjusted R<sup>2</sup> with the data derived from 306 homestay participants in Malaysia. The result found that the first layer of the path diagram indicate 16.1 % of variance attitude was determined by factors involving community participation and 31.1% of sustainable development was determined by community participation and attitude. The findings imply that attitude emerges as a prominent intermediary and moderating variable in discerning the relationship between community participation and sustainable development. Finally, the results indicated that the community participation is a crucial factor in developing sustainable development in the homestay program.
