Therefore, This Paper Employed A Development Research And Applies A Participatory Action Research (Par) To Initially Develop A Community- Based Gastronomy Tourism Site (Cbgt) In A Second-Tier City In Northern Thailand. This Paper Reveals That Community-Based Tourism (Cbt) Site In Northern Thailand Has A High Potential To Become A Cbgt Site, In Terms Of Community Collaborations, The Variety Of Local Foods, And The Government Supports.
