This paper intends to fill the gap of tourist perspective on the issue of emergence of tourism and its effect on indigenous lifestyle in Chittagong hill tracts, a tourism hotspot of Bangladesh. It is needed to create a bridge between indigenous and tourist perspective for understanding the social aspects of tourism as an economic sector. The stand of both indigenous community and tourists are important to create a social dialogue and sustainable social relations among the communities. The enhancement of tourism is connected with the changing lifestyle of the locals economically, environmentally and culturally. In this case, it is important to take the perspective of the tourists in the matter of indigenous lives as the two communities are interconnected through the link of tourism.
