Abstract Knowledge about where tourists stay during their trips, and at what time of year, is important to destination marketing, management, and planning. However, analysis of the spatial and temporal accommodation patterns of tourists often requires comprehensive data sets, advanced analytical techniques, and massive cost and workloads. Perhaps for these reasons few studies have attempted to construct a profile of tourists’ accommodation preferences. This study contributes to the extant litera...

Abstract The purpose of this study is to examine the multi-dimensional structure of the hotel servicescape to understand its impact on customer’s behavioral intentions through multi-dimensional perceived hedonic value. Data was collected from hotel guests in Turkey. Structural equation modeling (SEM) and multiple group analyses were conducted to test the hypothesized relationships among variables. The proposed research model was largely supported, and the moderating role of previous experience o...

AbstractThis research note employs discourse analysis to investigate the mechanism of China’s golden week holiday system, a unique policy regimen impacting the leisure lives of 1.4 billion Chinese citizens five times a year. It was revealed by the research results that the ideological paradigms of state control over leisure and emphasis on productivity derived from orthodox Marist articulations, as well as centralised policy planning and integration of traditional Chinese cultural values of natu...

ABSTRACTThis research introduces online travel photos published on social media platforms as a complementary data resource to examine the behavior and experience of museum visitors. The practical value of online travel photos is demonstrated through a case study of popular Hong Kong museums, particularly by using the photo content and metadata available from the Flickr platform. The proposed approach is a generic method for understanding museum visitor behavior and preferences, and supports muse...

This research note discusses the relationship of impact factors (IFs) and journal rankings in tourism. The present conceptual paper contributes to this line of research by commenting on the (un)suitability of using IFs and citations for ranking tourism journals, and aims to offer novel and constructive suggestions to academics in the field. Limitations of using IFs in ranking tourism journals have been examined, which include unintended negative impact induced by extensive use of IFs, possible i...

With the rapid economic growth that has occurred in recent decades in China, engaging in wine tourism has emerged as a new phenomenon. This study aims to examine factors that may influence Chinese people’s intentions to visit local wineries. We have employed a theoretical model based on the self-determination theory to holistically explore the effects of travel motivation, attitudes toward domestic wine, subjective norm, past experiences, and perceived travel barriers. An online questionnaire wa...

Abstract The purpose of this study was to propose a theory-driven model to understand the relationship among social website interactivity, brand experience, brand choice, price premium, and buying intention within the context of online travel agencies (OTAs) websites. The moderating role of consumer age was also investigated. Results suggested the inclusion of social website interactivity in the design of OTA websites enhanced branding elements, which influenced customers' willingness to pay the...

Film/TV induced-tourism research has proliferated in recent decades. Nevertheless, there is a lack of cross-disciplinary academic investigation into audiences' psychological processing of film tourism. In this study, the relationships and intervening mechanisms between audience involvement and tourist behavioral intentions were examined. Hypotheses were tested on a sample of 355 respondents, with the use of structural equation modeling and bootstrapping analysis. A popular reality show “Where ar...

Abstract Over the past decade, China has experienced a rapid growth in tourism. An increasing number of clients are booking tourism products, such as hotel rooms and airline tickets, through local online travel agents (OTAs). OTA websites are also becoming an important part of the Chinese tourism market. However, academic research on how Chinese tourists evaluate and perceive the different attributes of OTAs remains limited. The current study uses impact-range performance and asymmetry analyses,...
