    한숙영 | 2006, 30(3) | pp.11~28 | number of Cited : 72
    There have been only a few studies on heritage experience, focusing on its utilitarian and hedonic value, while the heritage experience, as a form of edutainment, has received research attention worldwide since early 1990s. It is important to study the heritage experience as a contemporary commodity which provides consumers with both utilitarian and hedonic values to satisfy their needs for edutainment. This study aims to identify the diverse reals(dimensions) of heritage tourism experience, in addition to edutainment, and which experience dimensions affect satisfaction and revisit intention of heritage tourists the most. For this purpose, a survey was performed to collect data and the data were analyzed by means of path analysis. The results of this study indicated four dimensions of the heritage tourism experience: involvement and entertainment, related to hedonic value, education, related to utilitarian value, and social bonding, falling on the boundary between utilitarian value and hedonic value dimensions. The two experience dimensions, involvement and entertainment related hedonic value, were found to exert a significant influence on tourists’ satisfaction and revisit intention of the heritage tourists.

    Globalisation of Tourism: Comparative Case Study on Heritage Tourism Development between Korea and England

    CHOE Sokho | 2006, 30(3) | pp.29~49 | number of Cited : 24
    Globalisation as the result of modernity has expanded the boundary of tourism over national limit, diversified and dedifferentiated tourism. Consequently, tourism destinations and experiences sought by today’s sophisticated tourists have been diversified. Therefore, the tourist destinations worldwide face with various kinds of threat. In other words, the globalisation of tourism has resulted in intense competition among destinations all over the world. One of the responses to these phenomena is developing heritage tourism. In this study, two cases of heritage tourism development, sharing similarities, as once a booming industrial city but declined, in Korea and in England were analyzed to compare the development process and consequent results. The Korean of heritage tourism case was developed from democratisation and the British case of heritage tourism development was from industrialisation. It was, however, concluded that the success or failure of the heritage tourism development in both countries’ cases is unpredictable considering the diverse circumstantial factors.

    The purpose of this study was to examine the conflict structure observed in the tourism development process in the abandoned mine areas of the southern Gangwon province for the past 10 years. To investigate the conflict structure, a content analysis of Gangwon daily newspaper, along with various documents and papers issued by the region was conducted, and in-depth interviews were also involved. The main reason for the conflicts may be explained by the pursuit of economic profit based on the security of the right to live. The core bodies of conflict arisen in the process of regional tourism development were the local residents and the central government. A systemic device for conflict management was absent and yet worse, no sustainable strategies against the occurrence of the conflict were applied.

    김병원 , 이장주 | 2006, 30(3) | pp.135~160 | number of Cited : 40
    In previous studies, several motivational factor scales with regard to local festival participation have been tested by means of exploratory factor analysis. They have, however, some methodological and theoretical limitations, such as lack of adaptability in other festival settings, validity, and generalizability of the scales. Conducting first- and second-order confirmatory factor analyses, the current study tested validity and adaptability of the motivational scale developed by Jang Joo Lee (2003) using a data collected from visitors of two local festivals, Simcheong and Baegryeon Festivals. After deleting four improper items from the original scale with 21 items, a first-order confirmatory factor analysis was conducted separately for each festival data. The result of the analysis indicated that six latent motive factors suggested by Lee (2003) were confirmed to be valid with reasonable model fit in both cases, and the second-order analysis also suggested a similar results confirming the adaptability and validity of the scale in both festivals.

    Effect of Recreation Demand and Economic Value Depending on Variation of the Quality of Historic Scenary of Cultural Heritage Resources

    한상현 | 2006, 30(3) | pp.225~245 | number of Cited : 26
    This study attempted to estimate the effect of recreation demand and economic value depending on variation of the quality of historic scenary of cultural heritage resources using the Hypothetical Travel Cost Method. The HTCM was derived from the Count Data Model(i.e. Poisson and Negative Binomial model). The Consumer Surpluses were also estimated and compared using the derived models. The results of this study showed that the recreation demand and values varied depending on the variation of the quality of historic scenary. The relationship was stronger especially when the current quality of historic scenary is deteriorated. Under the situation of deterioration, the effect of quality of historic scenary of cultural heritage resources on demand and values was larger than the other situations.
