Abstract

International Organization for Migration placed boat people from Vietnam in Cisarua, Puncak, West Java Province in late 1970s. Afterward, the refugees from in-conflict countries such as Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq are also placed in Cisarua. Since the early of 1990s one by one tourist from Arab countries have come to Cisarua. They come from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, United Arab Emirates and others. The numbers have risen day by day and some get married with local women. In general, they stay in Cisarua for two or three months. To meet the needs of Arab tourists, slowly, the indigenous people who are ethnically Sundanese and traditionally live from the agricultural sector, turned into service providers. They run kiosks and stalls which provide the daily needs of the tourists. Local residents also open barbershop, stalls selling telephone credits, Arabic food store, and car rental. They also become goat sellers, maids, chauffeurs and many more. This paper will discuss how Arab tourists in Cisarua change the culture of local people.
