    Abstract

    This research is empirically focused and examines methods for the protection and enhancement of heritage sites in Palembang and their potential as one of the attractive sites for cultural heritage tourism in Indonesia. It is important to analyses further how local legislation has been applied and how challenges could be met in order to improve it. The existence of regional legislation is an important variable that needs to be evaluated and compared in the case study area, in order to analyses the situation and then adopt appropriate methods and local programs. Legislation is the basic administrative instrument. In the Indonesian government structure, each province can manage its regional system of heritage protection and enhancement. However, the effectiveness of the regional legislation in the case study area, Palembang is very reliant on the challenges and dominance of tourism benefits. Importantly, there is also low local public enforcement and awareness, and lack of funding and supervision. Thus, comprehensive legislations urgently required accommodating both historic preservation and conservation tourism management. In addition, the absence of regional legislation in Palembang is a catastrophe for local heritage sites, since it is vital to the improvement of local programs for their protection and enhancement. The results of the analysis lead to recommendations for legislative change and applicable methods for Palembang city. The findings of research may provide useful input into the programs developed by the local government and encourage the integrated management of heritage sites and cultural tourism via local programs. Keywords: protection, enhancement, heritage, legislation, tourism
