- This article came from authors’ restlessness regarding the life of Cikondang traditional village which has not been empowered and optimized as a source of learning through tourism activities. There are several things highlighted in this article. First, in this era, young generations would rather go to a music concert or a department store for shopping than to know more about the traditional society around them. Whereas, there are so many cultural potentials in Cikondang traditional village reflected in their custom values such as social-cultural values, religion and belief values, and adaptive and preventive values related to the environment which are very interesting. Second, Cikondang traditional village’s custom values and local wisdom can be interpreted as tatanan, tuntunan, and tontonan (order, guidance, and spectacle) at once. Order and guidance are things that should be maintained due to their function as a basic way of life of the indigenous people in that village, while spectacle is related to the context of tourism. The custom values of Cikondang traditional village that can be seen and learned by the outsiders as part of tourism are needed to be packed attractively, so that there is an occurrence of values inheritance as an effort to develop historical and cultural awareness. Third, differences existed among people of Cikondang traditional village do not make them marginalized. Cultural approach is required to understand this case comprehensively. To sum up, this article tries to portray empirically the profile of Cikondang traditional village life which can be used as ‘something more’ for tourism, together with its empowerment and preservation
