      Pages: 305 - 312
      Abstract: Analyzing the preferences for adventure tourism in a destination serves to design an adventure tourism package, helping to improve the offer of products in places that have natural resources for the development of this type of tourism. The present study was based on a questionnaire that was distributed to people who had practiced adventure tourism in the province of Santa Elena in Ecuador. The techniques used were variant and bivariate. The results show that visitors to this destination mainly prefer diving and snorkeling, followed by paragliding. Then they continue water skiing, canopy and paragliding. The stay is mostly three days and two nights. The results will contribute to creating products according to the demand of adventure tourism.

  • The Impact of Revolutions and Terrorist Attacks on Tourism. Case Study:

    • Authors: Daniel BAKOTA, Magdalena MORGA, Arkadiusz PLOMINSKI, Mariusz RZETALA
      Pages: 354 - 366
      Abstract: The essence of the research concerns the impact of armed conflicts and terrorist attacks on the arrivals of foreign tourists with Egypt selected as the testing ground. It was found that revolutions and terrorist attacks have a negative impact on the development of the tourism industry – following the social unrest that took place in Egypt in the years 1997, 2011 and 2015, the number of arrivals of foreign tourists decreased by: 13%, 33% and 42% respectively (depending on countries of the world the reduction of the flow of tourists was within the range of 21-78%). The decrease in the number of tourists which takes place after a terrorist attack is short-lived and usually does not last longer than a year, whereas the consequences of a revolution are noticeable for tourism for a period of 3 to 5 years. According to respondents, the most important consequence of social unrest (protests, demonstrations, terrorist attacks) for tourism is a drop in the number of arrivals of foreign tourists, reduction in the income generated by tourism, decline in employment in tourism and the general slowdown in the development of tourism.

           Revisit a Destination

    • Authors: Ahmed Alshiha
      Pages: 367 - 378
      Abstract: Revisit intention is considered one of the key subjects in the current tourism industry. This paper examines the influence of the service quality of a leisure center on future intention to revisit Orlando city, as influenced by overall tourist satisfaction and destination image. Data was collected from 313 visitors of Orlando city, United States. The results indicated that leisure service quality positively affected the overall tourist satisfaction with the city and destination image. Additionally, tourist satisfaction and positive destination image positively impacted tourists’ intention to revisit the city. Moreover, tourist satisfaction and destination image fully mediated the linkage between service quality and tourist intention to revisit the destination in the model with two parallel mediators. Received results indicate that leisure service quality plays a vital role in tourist satisfaction. High quality service will positively affect the travel intentions of leisure center tourists, inclining them revisit the city. Thus, leisure centers and the leisure tourism industry should better understand the expectations and demands of tourists.

  • Tourist Attraction Satisfaction Factors from Online Reviews. A Case Study
           of Tourist Attractions in Thailand

    • Authors: Vimolboon CHERAPANUKORN, Prompong SUGUNNASIL
      Pages: 379 - 390
      Abstract: In order to survive and gain competitive advantages in the post COVID-19 pandemic, tourism destinations should plan their business strategy by focusing on customer expectation. A number of research have studied tourist satisfaction, particularly, hotels and transports, however there is limited investigation with tourist attractions which have different prominence from other tourism service providers. The purpose of this study was to identify the tourists’ satisfaction components for tourist attractions by adopting an opinion mining technique and using the zero-shot text classification method. The total of 40,000 online tourists’ reviews from 40 tourist attractions in Thailand, that were posted up thought between 2010 and 2021, were analyzed. The research findings reveal six components of tourist attraction satisfaction (TATSAT) model that includes 1) ambiance, 2) hospitality, 3) price, 4) accessibility, 5) cleanliness, and 6) security. All attributes of TATSAT model are generated from tourists’ point of view and was analyzed by the focus group discussion with five tourism experts from both academics and practitioners. This model expands the idea of HOLSAT and SERVQUAL by focusing on the tourist attraction business sector. The results can serve academics and practitioners in the research and improvement of tourist satisfaction to maximize competitive advantages for tourist attraction sector in the future.

  • Challenges to Tourism Development in Sub-Saharan Africa. A Case of Malawi

    • Authors: Mathews LAMBULIRA, Felix G. BELLO
      Pages: 391 - 402
      Abstract: Many countries around the world continue to consider or adopt tourism primarily for the economic benefits associated with it. However, developing tourism has been a difficult aspiration for developing countries as they face significant barriers. This paper examines the challenges to tourism development and their causative factors in Malawi. In-depth interviews were used to collect primary data. Inadequate connectivity between source markets and Malawi, as well as inside the country, underdeveloped tourist destinations and limited access to tourist information emerged as the main barriers to Malawi's tourism development. It was further revealed that underfunding, the centralized management structure of the tourism industry, lack of stakeholder collaboration, and an unfriendly business operating environment contribute to Malawi's tourism development challenges. It is recommended that the government and other key tourism stakeholders should prioritise the identified causative areas and among other things decentralise tourism administration and improve tourism statistics collection and analysis. There is also a need to strengthen stakeholder collaboration and networking.

  • Analyzing the Factors that Influence the Entrepreneur Business Performance
           of Tourism Destination of Kuala Terengganu City Centre, Malaysia

    • Authors: Muhammad Abi Sofian Abdul HALIM, Nurul Farahiyah AWANG, Khatijah OMARm, Jumadil SAPUTRA, Siti Nor Adawiyah Azzahra KAMARUDDIN, Hazman SAMSUDIN
      Pages: 403 - 413
      Abstract: Tourism in Terengganu deals with attractions, events, and facilities of special interest to tourists, such as Kuala Terengganu City Centre (KTCC). KTCC is a collaboration project between the Terengganu state government and the East-Cost Economic Region Development (ECERD) agency. This project purposely attracts potential foreign investors and upgrades the community's economy and social well-being in rural dan sub-urban areas in Kuala Terengganu. Therefore, this study analyzes the factors that influence the business performance among Malay micro-entrepreneurs in rural and sub-urban areas of Kuala Terengganu. The study utilized four factors, including entrepreneurial competency, financial literacy, innovation, and technology. In this survey research, non-probability has been chosen by using the purposive sampling methods. The data were collected from Malay micro-entrepreneurs operating their business, including the North and South areas of KTCC. The results showed that entrepreneurial competency and technology factors were significantly affected business performance. Meanwhile, the financial literacy and innovation factors were not significantly affected business performance among Malay micro-entrepreneurs. In general, this study's findings indicated that most Malay entrepreneurs are not concerned about the importance of managing their finance and creating innovative products in the competitive areas. Also, KTCC is a project that can benefit those Malay micro-entrepreneurs who wisely grab the opportunities. Therefore, they need to consider other entrepreneurial factors that can further develop their business performance without relying on the government and other stakeholders.

  • Beach Area Development Strategy as the Prime Tourism Area in Indonesia

    • Authors: Hailuddin HAILUDDIN, Mukmin SURYATNI, Imamudin YULIADI, Syarwani CANON, Syaparuddin SYAPARUDDIN, Endri ENDRI
      Pages: 414 - 426
      Abstract: This research aims to study and analyze the appropriate strategies carried out and developed by stakeholders to build and develop the coastal area of Cemara Sheet as a mainstay tourist area in West Lombok. The development of the coastal regions is significant to create community welfare and educate it to take responsibility and maintain the preservation of the marine environment and the natural surroundings. The research approach used is a qualitative descriptive approach based on field observations supported by secondary data. The collected data is then analyzed using a SWOT analysis by systematically identifying various internal and external factors to formulate the desired development strategy. The logic that is built is how to maximize strengths (Strengths) and opportunities (Opportunities) but simultaneously minimize weaknesses (Weaknesses) and threats (Threats). The results showed that the tourism object of Cemara beach is very potential to be developed because of the natural support of the beach and sea and the surrounding hills. It has a clean and beautiful beach, the mangrove forest, which is still beautiful. In the background, it has an attractive green spread of Sekotong hills, a strategic position as the entrance to Lombok from the sea route, and its safe and comfortable environment. But on the other hand, several things need improvements, such as structuring the housing environment for residents, handling waste, and compliance with tourist facilities such as trash cans, ATMs, toilets, mini markets, prayer rooms, and others. Facilities and infrastructure and supporting infrastructure need attention to be better organized, such as the construction of water games, outbound, and viewing posts. Damaged and narrow road and bridge infrastructure, street and beach lighting are also necessary fixed. If all of these things can be handled properly, then the Cemara beach tourism object will charm and become a mainstay tourist destination that can compete with other tourist objects.

  • Banking Risks and Lending to Tourism and Hotel Businesses amid the
           COVID-19 Pandemic

      Pages: 427 - 437
      Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to explore the risks associated with lending to tourism and hospitality businesses in the context of COVID-19 restrictions. The author proposes a scoring methodology to assess the quantitative and qualitative factors of borrowers’ credit standing based on industry-related risks and the quantification of potential loss given default. The analysis of credit standing draws on actual figures from financial statements of the ten biggest tour operators present in the Russian and Kazakh tourism markets, as well as a survey of experts specialising in bank lending. The findings confirm the proposed hypothesis of a negative impact of the pandemic on the financial condition and credit standing of tourism and hospitality businesses and an increase of banks’ credit risks. The trends of lending to tourism and hotel businesses have indicated a contraction of credit supply as a result of the low credit standing of borrowers. An industry analysis shows that losses from the materialisation of credit risks in the group of tourism businesses could be significant for banks. The author concludes that to maintain financial stability and the level of credit in the industry, the state should continue to support the sector, including the provision of soft loans to help finance some items of expenses.

      Pages: 456 - 465
      Abstract: The tourism model of 4s prevails as the dominant development model for tourist island destinations. Corfu following the 4s model of tourism development records negative effects which combined with increased environmental sensitivity result in the search for alternative forms of tourism. Cultural tourism based can emerge as an alternative tourism carrying capacity model. The development of the conditions of cultural tourism has not been sufficiently studied for its island destinations. The development of cultural tourism can have the effect of increasing tourism revenues and improving the standard of living in mature tourist destinations such as Corfu. Tourism policy and destination marketing should be devoted into an alternative model of cultural tourism. This article examines a possible correlation between cultural tourism and accessibility, the sun - sea, attractions and sights. Key findings of the present study are that cultural tourism is strongly related with attractions and sights. In addition, there is a relatively small correlation between cultural tourism and accessibility. These research findings can help decision makers, the regional authority, the municipal authority, entrepreneurs involved, and any interested party related to tourism policies and destination marketing understand some of the conditions required for the development of cultural tourism.

      Pages: 466 - 476
      Abstract: A phenomenon is an embryo that comes from each science, and each science will have a branch of science. As a science, tourism has many branches of sub tourism science. One branch of tourism science is hotellogy. Hotellogy comes from the word of hotel and logy; hence hotellogy is the study of all tourist activities and the surrounding communities and other things related to tourism. There are three terms of science, e.g., ontology, axiology, and epistemology, which make the hotellogy has strong parallels with other existing sciences. Hotellogy is always dynamic and adaptive to the local and global community that has descriptive and predictions functions in various dimensions; therefore, the development of hotellogy is based on the three systems, e.g., social, economic, and biological systems. This research focuses on exploring hotel studies in Indonesia by pieces of literature. There is an opportunity for researchers to examine the situation of hotels in various countries so that the general results between countries regarding the existence of hotels will become complete and waveform knowledge so that the universal identity will become a universal identity of hotellogy becomes stronger.

           the Phuket Sandbox Scheme

    • Authors: Hongrui ZHU, Mehri YASAMI
      Pages: 477 - 485
      Abstract: As a tourism-dependent country, Thailand has suffered tremendously amid the COVID-19 pandemic. As a pioneering move to reopen the country, the Island of Phuket has begun to welcome fully vaccinated international visitors under the Phuket Sandbox Scheme since July 2021. This research gained insight into the perceived issues of reviving the tourism industry amid COVID-19 by using the Phuket Sandbox Scheme as a case study. This research undertook a focus group interview of 15 international tourists who have entered Thailand through the Phuket Sandbox Scheme in February 2022. Drawing from thematic analysis, three perceived issues have been identified, including lack of spontaneity, bureaucratic process, and lack of contingency plans. This research contributed to the existing body of knowledge and literature in the subject area of post-crisis tourism recovery and resilience. Also, this research developed a framework that shed light on the essential role played by the central government in coordinating with relevant stakeholders and parties to recover the tourism industry amid the crisis, which goes beyond the context of Phuket.

      Abstract: Indonesia has some types of attractive tourism in various areas captivating tourists’ interest. However, from 2016 to 2020, the number of tourists visiting tourist destinations decreased since the tourism products offered did not meet the tourists’ expectations and desires, the minimum distribution of tourism products provided, lacking promotion made to the tourists, and the people involved in the tourism industry did not perform optimum services to the tourists. Another problem was the minimum information of the culture, or local culture of an area, tourism products, distribution services, tourism destination promotion, and the characteristics of local society causing tourists reluctant to visit some areas they did not know. This research employed descriptive quantitative based on survey method through path analysis using SPSS 22. The population of this study included 120 million local tourists who would visit various areas in Indonesia in 2020. By accidental sampling technique, 100 people were taken as the samples. The research results based on the partial hypothesis stated that the variables of tourism products offered, tourism product distribution services, and people had a positive and significant effect on the quality of tourism service, and these three variables influenced tourists’ decisions to visit some areas in Indonesia. Simultaneously, the variables of tourism products, tourism product distribution services, tourism product promotion, and people had a positive and significant effect on the tourists’ decisions to visit several tourist destinations in Indonesia through the variable of the quality of tourism services that have been provided.

      Abstract: The number of political and cultural shifts in Ukraine during the last years have caused the rise of the interest in Ukraine as a place of attraction for religious tourists. As a result of Ukraine's rapid withdrawal from the religious and ideological milieu of the Moscow Patriarchate, getting a Tomos and the creation of the Orthodox Church of Ukraine, the annexation of the Crimean Peninsula (where a fairly high percentage of Muslim believers (Tatars) live and are persecuted), the gradual integration of (mostly) Orthodox Ukraine into the European Union (where most countries profess Catholicism and Protestantism) attract the attention of the European community to Ukraine more than ever in the religious sphere. Today this can become a favorable environment for the world’s getting acquainted with the Ukrainian religious culture, with the promotion of its spiritual heritage, which has been created for thousands of years, for creating a general image of the country as a tourist one. According to the World Tourism Organization, at least 200 million people go pilgrimage annually. Pilgrimage is also gaining popularity in Ukraine every year. The specificity of pilgrimage is determined by the features of the religious consciousness of believers, which in turn is associated with the nature of religious doctrine and cult practices of specific regional destinations. Thus, in the context of the development of modern state tourism policy, once lost traditions of pilgrimage are gaining significant growth in the country.
