Abstract
One of the many spots in Semarang, which is being meticulously renovated by the Municipal Government for the purpose of attracting tourists, is Kota Lama Semarang. This Kota Lama Semarang, are old buildings which were built in the ages of the Dutch colonisation in Indonesia. Recently, there have been attempts at registering Kota Lama Semarang under the World Heritage List by UNESCO. Despite its prestige as so conveyed by the fancy European buildings, Kota Lama Semarang is prone to flooding. Mitigation plans are highly required for the perseverance of the cultural values in Kota Lama Semarang. Moreover, such plans are further required to maintain the sites which are of touristic importance. The most feasible and do-able solution plan to this problem is applying ecotourism. Ecotourism suggest that the best way to deal with disaster is to make the best out of it by promoting tourism potential by cultivating it sustainably involving local people. Therefore, this paper is trying to propose how ecotourism works in order to improve the tourism quality in Kota Lama.
