The whole concept and existence of smart cities is relatively very new. The theory of smart cities dates back to the late 20th century and has its roots in Los Angeles United States of America. Development of a city as a smart city does not mean to change the whole face of the city by changing its infrastructural facilities and by revamping its connectivity or by establishing a new city, the concept of smart cities may differ from one city to another and this does not consider to establish the revamping change in the infrastructure but it seeks to provide some of the facilities that will make the cities much more likable, convenient & clean. The needs of a tourist at a destination are cleanliness, safety, security, Proper water supply, better connectivity, peace, and transportation. While keeping in mind that if the facilities that are used at destination are the ones that promote sustainable tourism, they promote sustainable development of the whole area as well.
