Boracay Island Destination Image Through Travel Blogs, Peter Lorenz Salmon, Ronelia Amen, Jan Patrick Aguilar, John Benedict Javellana, Cheryl Joy Fernandez

Journal of Environmental Science and Sustainable Development

Destination images are important information for marketing professionals, local planners, and travel bloggers on social media. The rise of social media has allowed more tourists to share their knowledge, emotions, and experiences from their travels. However, despite the popularity of adapting online narratives to destination images, little or no qualitative analysis has been conducted about island’s sustainable tourism development in the Philippines using information from social media. One type of destination are small islands in the Philippines. The examination is worthwhile inasmuch as the literature has been silent on destination images of top island retreats in the country, although ...

Customer Experience In Tourism: A Review Of Definitions, Components, And Measurements, Maksim Godovykh, Asli D. A. Tasci

Faculty Scholarship and Creative Works

Considered as a more competitive advantage than price, product, or quality, the concept of experience has received increasing attention in different disciplines. However, the pathway for handling experience has not been clearly set forth due to divergent conceptualizations and insufficient measures of customer experience. This study critically analyzes empirical and conceptual literature on experience, provides a holistic definition of experience, proposes an experience model with four main components (emotional, cognitive, sensorial, and conative), and suggests using a combination of several measures to capture the totality of tourism experience at pre-visit, onsite, and post-visit stages. These suggestions provide important implications for ...

Retailing and Tourism Management Faculty Publications

Rapid development of the ride-sharing economy has led to a rising need to better understand travellers’ decision making regarding their travel time and cost. The present study conducted a travel choice experiment using smartphone applications, based on data collected from 532 respondents and 2128 stated-preference surveys in China. Based on prospect theory, the experiment utilized a coupon reward policy to analyze how much ride-sharing platforms might influence travellers’ choices in both work and leisure contexts. The results of an ordered logit model revealed that older residents were likely to pay more to reduce waiting time. It was further found that ...

Behavioral Factors In Hotel Location: A Study Of Hotels From Opole Province In Poland, Daniel Puciato 2020 Opole University of Technology, Faculty of Physical Education and Physiotherapy, Department of Tourism and Recreation

Behavioral Factors In Hotel Location: A Study Of Hotels From Opole Province In Poland, Daniel Puciato

Tourism / Turyzm

The choice of location is one of the key economic decisions for hotel owners. In modern economics traditional premises are increasingly questioned, and assumptions are often made involving imperfect competition, limited rationality of behavior, and the incomplete scope of information or the inability to use it effectively. This is also reflected in the theory of location within which a behavioral trend has been developed assuming the occurrence of non-economic, subjective factors in making location decisions. The aim of the paper is to identify behavioral factors in hotel location in Opolskie Province in Poland. The paper uses four main research methods ...

Behawioralne Czynniki Lokalizacji Hoteli – Studium Przypadku Obiektów Z Województwa Opolskiego, Daniel Puciato

Tourism / Turyzm

Wybór lokalizacji hotelu jest jedną z kluczowych decyzji gospodarczych. We współczesnej ekonomii coraz częściej kwestionuje się klasyczne czynniki, za podstawy uznając niedoskonałą konkurencję, ograniczoną racjonalność zachowań oraz pozyskiwanie informacji w niepełnym zakresie lub brak umiejętności ich wykorzystania. Znalazło to również odzwierciedlenie w teorii lokalizacji, w ramach której powstał nurt behawioralny. Jego zwolennicy zakładają występowanie pozaekonomicznych, subiektywnych czynników podejmowania decyzji lokalizacyjnych. Wciąż nierozpoznane empirycznie są jednak mieszczące się w tym nurcie przesłanki decydujące o wyborze lokalizacji hoteli. W kontekście tak sformułowanych luk badawczych celem artykułu jest próba identyfikacji behawioralnych czynników lokalizacji hoteli z województwa opolskiego. W pracy wykorzystano cztery główne metody ...

Between Elitism And Egalitarianism: The Heritage Tram Line In Wrocław As An Example Of A Search For An Acceptable Tourist Product, Krzysztof Kołodziejczyk

Tourism / Turyzm

The Heritage Tram Line is one of the tourist attractions of Wrocław. It is a way of making use of a large and diverse collection of historic trams that illustrate the development of public transport in the capital of Lower Silesia and, more broadly, in Central Europe. Although it has been operating since 2009, in recent years major modifications have been introduced including increasing the number of routes, a guided commentary on selected journeys, diversifying the historic tram cars and changing the ticket prices.

Tourism / Turyzm

Zabytkowa Linia Tramwajowa jest jedną z atrakcji turystycznych Wrocławia. Stanowi formę wykorzystania dużej i różnorodnej kolekcji wiekowych tramwajów, które obrazują rozwój komunikacji miejskiej w stolicy Dolnego Śląska czy – w szerszym ujęciu – w Europie Środkowej. Choć linia funkcjonuje już od 2009 r., to w ostatnich latach w ofercie wprowadzane są duże modyfikacje, m.in. zwiększenie liczby tras, dodanie komentarza przewodnika, dywersyfikacja zabytkowego taboru czy zmiany w taryfie. Celem artykułu jest ocena tych działań pod kątem zainteresowania turystów. Przeanalizowano statystyki dotyczące frekwencji i sprzedaży biletów w sezonie turystycznym w 2019 r. i porównano je z danymi z poprzedniego roku, mając na uwadze ...

Branding The Sacral Landscape: Religious Content In Regional Tourism Marketing, Set In A Post-Secular Society, Markus Hilpert 2020 University of Augsburg, Germany

Branding The Sacral Landscape: Religious Content In Regional Tourism Marketing, Set In A Post-Secular Society, Markus Hilpert

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

There is a paucity of research on the branding of sacral landscapes as a regional strategy in tourism marketing. On the one hand, the concept of place branding, to date, has been transferred very little to sacred destinations, while on the other hand, religious content and modern tourist marketing barely fit together. Nonetheless, the perception of religion in a postmodern society opens up new opportunities for sacred places to reposition themselves in the competition faced by tourist destinations. The aim of this article is to show how German tourism regions with a religious focus build their brand. Through analyzing six ...

Perceptions Of Halal Tourism In Indonesia: Mental Constructs And Level Of Support, Alfonso Vargas-Sanchez, Dina Hariani, Ani Wijayanti

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

Tourism is one of the leading sectors for the Indonesian government to increase foreign exchange. Indonesia has many tourist destinations that attract domestic and foreign tourists. In line with the development of Halal tourism trends, the Indonesian government has begun to develop several enclaves such as Lombok and Aceh as Halal destinations. Indonesia has the largest Muslim population of all countries in the world, and it is estimated that around 13 percent of the global Muslims live in the country. As a Muslim-majority country, it should be easier to implement Halal tourism than in other non-Muslim countries, but this is ...

Star Rating Factors For Umrah Services: The Perspectives Of Umrah Operators And Consumers, Amran Harun, Aini Khalida Muslim, Dzunnur Dzail, Bestoon Abdulmaged Othman

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

The star rating system is widely used in the hotel industry to classify hotels according to their quality. However, the Umrah industry in Malaysia has yet to adopt the system. Thus, their services are not monitored by a controlled and reliable rating system. The star rating is deemed important to Umrah consumers as the system would provide the consumers with information about basic facilities or services that can be expected. Hence, the purpose of this study is to explore the key elements of a star rating that would suit the Umrah industry in Malaysia and to accomplish this, perspectives of ...

Anchorite Sacred Caves In Serbia: Balancing Between Pilgrimage And Religious Tourism Development, Aleksandar Antić

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

Serbia is a country with diverse karst terrain, full of various surface and underground karst formations. This terrain is one of the factors that influenced the development of cultures and civilizations in this area. Many archaeological findings indicate that prehistoric people found refuge, safety and peace in many caves in present-day Serbia. The natural environment has also influenced many spiritual endeavours, which have shaped cultural identities throughout history. In this study, Orthodox anchorite sacred caves in Serbia are explored, as well as their related pilgrimage activities and potential for religious tourism development. For the purpose of this research, three pilgrimage ...


(Re)Inscribing Meaning: Embodied Religious-Spiritual Practices At Croagh Patrick And Our Lady’S Island, Ireland, Richard Scriven, Eoin O'Mahony 2020 University College Cork

(Re)Inscribing Meaning: Embodied Religious-Spiritual Practices At Croagh Patrick And Our Lady’S Island, Ireland, Richard Scriven, Eoin O'Mahony

International Journal of Religious Tourism and Pilgrimage

Responding to calls for critical interrogations of pilgrimages, our paper examines how different religious meanings are (re)inscribed in spaces through the performance of annual events in a post-secular context. This focus reveals how pilgrims’ embodied practices are fundamental to continuing definitions of these locations as sacred places. Using accounts of the Croagh Patrick and Our Lady’s Island pilgrimages in Ireland, we trace the movement of people in these spaces focusing on how meanings are forged, refracted, and challenged through the performances. These mass embodiments assert traditional understandings of Christian worship and looser spiritual interpretations, while simultaneously involving secular ...
