Tourism administration and development are the dimensions of integrated sciences that require the form of social interaction and is an integrated implementation in the process of working with knowledge, principles, concepts, theories, skills, abilities, experiences, and resources from science, organization, and associate of the connected parties. If you need to create the administration and management to make sustainability. Operations that require management and development of various parts to sustainable concurrently balanced. So, it is difficult to achieve if implemented without integration. This can be seen from the result of driving the implementation of the national tourism development plan in 2012 - 2016 that success only 41 percent due to lack of integration.
