1. Introduction

Rural tourism has become a unique attraction due to the increasing attention of many tourists from cities to rural activities. One of the push factors is boredom with routines in city areas. This driving factor gave rise to rural tourism initiatives as a driving factor for economic development and cultural preservation. Several new rural tourism activities have attracted urban tourists looking for authentic culture and improving the economy while preserving culture and forests. Resource allocation strategies play an essential role in the success of this initiative. The rural tourism process is becoming increasingly adapted to the presence of technology. New and emerging resource allocation strategies are essential to encourage new rural tourism activities that are necessary for sustainable economic development. Conventional allocation methods must be immediately adapted to accommodate rapid changes and dynamics, especially in rural tourism activities. Thus, resource allocation strategies can exploit synergistic potential to ensure optimal results.

In responding to these challenges, there is an increasingly urgent need to optimize scarce resources collaboratively. This is done in the context of a rural tourism initiative by utilizing emerging technology. Quantum computing offers solutions to problems and introduces new ways of calculating by exploiting the peculiarities of quantum mechanics. It relates to shared decision-making and more effective resource allocation strategies. In this article, the authors investigate the synergies between quantum computing and rural tourism management by considering collaborative resource allocation problems. This article also emphasizes the role of quantum computing in overcoming issues in tourist village areas with an algorithm that allows finding the optimal approach [1]. Sometimes, this area is not exposed and is challenging to reach due to limited access to information.

Consequently, collaborative action occurs by recognizing the role of technology in rural tourism management. Technically, local communities, government agencies, tourism operators, and other stakeholders must collaborate to create innovative solutions. For example, activities related to increasing collective awareness, reducing coordination costs, devising a scheme for time evolution [2], and improving community welfare in dealing with several existing problems. Thus, these challenges can be solved with the presence of quantum computing.

Technically, the implementation of quantum computing in tourism aims to speed up the decision-making process, especially concerning long-term economic resilience in rural areas, and efficiently solve large-scale complex optimization problems [3]. With this technological solution, stakeholders can explore possible solutions for resource allocation. The aim is to maximize economic, social, and cultural benefits and reduce negative environmental impacts. In this case, all parties involved in formulating the development direction of tourist village areas need to consider the presence of quantum computing technology. This approach also aims to find the best solution for resource allocation in achieving local and global sustainability targets. With this technology, regional development and environmental preservation can increase, collaborative optimization of tourism resource development can be improved [4], and land use conflicts can be reduced. Additionally, this technology will help bring transparency into decision-making that promotes rural resilience and sustainability during unpredictable times.

This article will contribute to determining essential aspects related to the contribution of quantum computing to the sustainable development agenda. Insights into using quantum technology in rural tourism management can gradually help all parties. Based on the analysis of several references and practical examples, the findings of this article can help policymakers, practitioners, and researchers. Technically, all parties can optimize resource allocation through collaboration with quantum computing-based rural tourism initiatives. This article reviews the future of rural tourism by utilizing quantum computing technology to improve social justice, increase economic growth, preserve culture, and protect the environment [5] with quantum computing.

2. Main Aspects in Quantum Computing Implementation
