Abstract: Local Communities have always had an impact on people living, particularly with the exchange of information and experience that occurs with migration and movement. With the latest developments in the information and communications technology (ICT) field, the boundaries of local communities have become transparent, making nearly everyone a part of the global community. On the other hand, the nurturing of local communities has been largely neglected through the use of ICT. This paper explores ways in which local communities may be developed and those in which new communities may act as transit nodes for communications between local and global communities. The conceptual design of Travel Virtual Communities will map the importance of this transit and provide a fundamental structure focused on developing local Virtual Communities.
