Abstract: This study explores the potential of digital ethnography and visual narratives in the film Paradise Paradigm to capture the interrelationship between fashion, travel, tourism, cultural diversity, environment, sustainable development and our own spiritual development in relation to Bali, Indonesia. If international tourism stakeholders, the community, and visitors to the island truly share a common interest for cultural and environmental preservation, new ways of understanding the impact developments are having must be sought alongside building community-based tourism.
Keywords: digital ethnography; community-based tourism; Bali; visual narratives; sustainable design; circular economy; othering; autoethnography; cultural diversity; Paradise Paradigm.
