Along with the acceleration of the globalization phenomenon, the level of development among the countries has been showing substantial differences. Developed countries have performed their development levels because they have a number of economic advantages and they have slightly minimized the imbalance between the regions. One of the most important problems of developing countries involves the development and underdevelopment. One of the ways to cope with this problem is to identify the priority sector for development of these countries. Performing the development in developing countries is merely possible by evaluating the potential of their tourist supply. The tourism sector plays significant role on regional development and the efficient use of local tourism resources. In this respect, the purpose of the research is to investigate the role of tourism along with development policies to resolve interregional imbalance. Therefore, it is intended to figure out the importance of tourism in regional development and focused regional development instruments. As a result, it is aimed to examine the role of tourism in developing regions on their development processes. Keywords: Regional development, Tourism, Alternative Tourism
