    Yongseok Shin | Chang, Pyong-Kwon | 2007, 31(3) | pp.11~29 | number of Cited : 11
    The aim of this article is to suggest a direction for the improvement of Korean Tourism Basic Act. The focus of this research is placed on the new direction of tourism law system and the restructuring of Tourism Basic Act.The analysis shows that the present tourism laws have not caught up with the rapid changes in tourism policy environment. Tourism Basic Act has rarely changed since it was established, so it fails to meet the demands and reflect major issues, such as values of international tourism, coordination of government tourism policies, sustainable development principle, and tourism cooperation between North and South Korea. Based on these findings, this research suggests following restructuring plans for tourism law improvement. Firstly, Tourism Basic Act should be totally changed in both form and contents. Secondly, values and spirits of international tourism-related declarations should be reflected in Tourism Basic Act. Thirdly, Tourism Basic Act should be a guideline for future tourism policy, such as rural tourism, ecotourism, sustainable tourism, and education tourism. Finally, Tourism Basic Act should be restructured for balanced development of inbound, outbound, and domestic tourism in Korea.핵심용어(Key words):관광정책, 관광정책환경, 관광기본법, 관광입국추진기본법, 관광거버넌스

    A Study on Birdwatching Experts’ Value Pursuit Using the Hard Laddering Method

    한학진 | Seongseop Kim | 2007, 31(3) | pp.31~54 | number of Cited : 21
    This study attempted to identify ultimate value of serious bird-watching tourists’, using the means-end analysis which is also called laddering. Means-end theory deals with attributes, consequences, and values as basic content of consumer product knowledge stored in memory. The interview method used in this study is ‘hard laddering.’ Fifty seven birdwatching experts throughout Korea were interviewed to find out their ultimate value in bird-watching activity. The respondents of this study consisted of those who possess a high level of specialization in bird-watching, such as nature interpreters, environment-related civil servants, and bird researchers. The results of this study indicated that the most dominant linkage is ‘interest in birds’(A)-‘preservation of bird-related ecosystem’(C)-‘enhancement of nature preservation spirits’(V). This result implies that human beings should recognize the importance of nature and its preservation through bird-watching activities.핵심용어(Key words):수단-목적 사슬, 하드래더링, 탐조여행, 내용코드, 함축매트릭스, 가치 맵

    The Development of Performance Evaluation Model Using BSC: Focused on Green Rural Tourist Villages

    Kim, Nam Jo | 문성민 | 2007, 31(3) | pp.97~116 | number of Cited : 11
    As a new rural tourism policy, the project of Green Rural Tourist Village for promoting rural economy and increasing rural quality of life has been implemented by the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry since 2001. The need for evaluating the project in terms of its efficiency and effectiveness called for a useful tool to monitor and evaluate the project. The primary purpose of this study is to develop a model that can monitor and evaluate the condition and output of Green Rural Tourist Village using the balanced scorecard (BSC). By means of an in-depth interview, an on-site survey using questionnaires, and consultation with experts, the constructs that can reflect BSC concept and evaluate performance of Green Rural Tourist Village were determined. The model suggested in this study is consisted of three perspectives, after merging the “financial perspective” in the original BSC concept into the “internal business process perspective” as one: the residents of a host community, the visitors, and the internal business process. The performance evaluation model of this study was designed to depict both output and outcome indicators hierarchically (i.e., a Critical Success Factor [CSF], a Critical Success Indicator[CSI], and finally a Key Performance Indicator[KPI]). 핵심용어(Key words):성과평가, 개념모형, 균형성과표, 녹색농촌체험마을

    An Application of the Individual Travel Cost MethodConsidering Data Characteristics

    Song Woon Gang | Haejin Lee | 2007, 31(3) | pp.171~188 | number of Cited : 17
    This study discusses the travel cost method(ITCM) related to data characteristics such as count and on-site survey data. In this paper, several econometric models were estimated and compared using on-site survey data from Hyo-Seok Cultural Festival in Pyeongchang county. In order to identify any bias stemming from the characteristics of the data, the paper uses Poisson model, truncated Poisson model which accounts for the truncated nature of the data, and endogenously stratified Poisson model which solves the endogenous stratification problem resulting from the over-sampling of avid users. The empirical application shows that the truncated Poisson and endogenously stratified Poisson models yield better goodness-of-fit and parameter estimations compared with the standard Poisson model. Particularly, the endogenously stratified Poisson model performs relatively better than the truncated Poisson.핵심용어(Key words):개인여행비용법(individual travel cost method), 현장조사(on-site survey), 가산자료모형(count data models), 절단(truncation), 내생적 층화(endogenous stratification)

    Can We Predict the Demand for Outbound Tourism in Korea?

    soowon mo | 2007, 31(3) | pp.189~208 | number of Cited : 10
    The aim of this paper is to compare the forecasting performance of the structural model of outbound tourists with that of the random walk model. The RMSE indicates that the random walk model outperforms the short-run structural model in all forecasting steps for all countries concerned. The mean errors for short-run structural models are large in magnitude relative to the MAE’s. This fact indicates a systematic bias in short-run forecasting. We found a long-run relationship for the tourism model. This finding of the cointegrating vector indicates that the structural model can be interpreted as having long-run validity. We, hence, proceeded by estimating the error-correction model and compared the forecasting performance of the model. The results of the long-run forecasts were markedly different from those of the short-run model. The error-correction models outperformed the random walk at all steps for the three criteria and seven countries. The results of the study suggest that while the structural tourism models provide poorer performance than the random walk for short-run forecasting, they outperform the random walk model in the long-run forecasting.핵심용어(Key words):예측, 관광수요, 예측오류

    Concepts of Heritage and Heritage Tourism: ature Review

    SukYoungHan | Kim SaHun | 2007, 31(3) | pp.209~223 | number of Cited : 36
    While heritage and heritage tourism had received considerable attention since late 1980s in Europe, some attention has been paid to this kind of tourism in more recent years in Korea. It is not infrequent to find the concept and definition of heritage and heritage tourism misused and abused in Korea due to a lack of theoretical contribution in this field. In cope with this situation, this study aims to probe into the concept and definition of heritage and heritage tourism. Heritage is a contemporary commodity not only related to history or past but also purposefully created to satisfy contemporary consumption. There are two main approaches to address the question of what heritage tourism is. The first approach emphasizes the presence of the individual in space exhibiting historic artifacts or at location classified as heritage sites. The second approach stresses the link between the individual and the heritage presented; that is the perception of the site in relation to the individual’s own heritage. 핵심용어(Key words):유산(heritage), 유산관광(heritage tourism), 문화관광(cultural tourism), 개인적 경험(personal experiences)
