    임철수 , Ko, Dong Woo | 2015, 39(2) | pp.85~102 | number of Cited : 11
    This research explores determinants of the expenditure amount by cruise tourists. All five variables, including destination-related factors (past visiting experience, stay duration, satisfaction of harbor, and loyalty to harbor), as well as cultural background (language area) were anticipated to relate to the amount spent, while the variable of income level was expected to not be significantly related to expenditure. The raw data using 2,785 participants from ‘A Survey of 2013 Inbound Cruise Tourists’ were applied for testing the hypotheses, with some correction. The results showed that none of the independent variables of the five had a significant effect on expenditure. However linguistic types (i.e., Chinese, Japanese, & English speaking participants) had an influence on expenditure and moderating effect on the relationship between the others five independent variables and the dependent variable. In conclusion, the fact that language reflects the respondents’ cultural characteristics to determine his/her consuming behavior and expending size is discussed as well as future research possibilities.

    이수진 , Tae-Kyung Kim | 2015, 39(2) | pp.135~149 | number of Cited : 4
    This study aims to provide appropriate site locations for a medical tourism cluster. The priorities that should be considered in the process of selecting medical tourism cluster include the likelihood of attracting medical service facilities for foreigners, the availability of tourism attractions for foreigners, and the ease of entry such as international airports, ports and etc. However, there is little discussion about which locations are suitable for medical tourism cluster. Thus, this study examines the likelihood of attracting medical facilities and services, the level of specialization in tourism and medical businesses, the accessibility to suburban and urban tourism resources in order to select the right location for medical tourism cluster. The results show that Bucheon and Suwon are the most appropriate locations for medical tourism cluster in Gyeonggi Province. An empirical research approach shown in this study has rarely been used in previous studies particularly within the context of tourism industry.
