According to the social exchange theory, in order to attract community support, it is necessary to provide more satisfactory areas for people. What could lead to this goal are positive or negative perceptions and interpretations of tourism industry development. Based on theoretical and conceptual aspects, cultural, economic, social and environmental dimensions and their impacts are important in host communities as well as creating and development of positive and negative perceptions of local communities.
