Tourism towns, as a special type of human endeavor in recent years to integrate accommodation and leisure, have created a new need in the field of urban planning theory and practice. In the typology of planning, there is still no general consensus on the classification of this particular type, so in this paper we will try to examine the theories proposed in general and urban planning and tourism in particular, to a theoretical approach in relation to the theory of tourism town planning. On the other hand, by prioritizing physical and social issues in tourism towns, due to the relationship between urban body and community, using a research context of such cases in cities, efforts have been made to orient the general direction towards "physical social planning» of tourism towns. In order to establish the connection between the urban body and social relations in tourist settlements, the process of transforming the feeling of environment into social action in the physical environment has been studied. Finally, by extrapolating Amirkabir tourism town in Arak, the research findings regarding the relationship between the formed body and the sampled community were studied. In order to organize this research, which is of a fundamental type and has been done with the aim of explaining the executive solutions, the "descriptive-analytical" method has been used along with the collection of library information. Finally, the information collected was "comparatively" measured using the researcher's "participatory observation."
