    Kim, Nam Jo | Kim, Sang-Tae | 2014, 38(6) | pp.253~275 | Number Of Cites : 6 | Number Of Views : 796
    Abstract PDF
    A Tourism Climate Index (TCI) is a useful indicator to evaluate a climate’s environment to determine whether it is appropriate for tourists to participate in outdoor activities. The purpose of this study is to develop a Korea Tourism Climate Index (KTCI), to investigate the weights of climate indicators including thermal comforts in daytime (high temperature) and daily (average temperature), precipitation, windy speed, and the amount of cloud (sunshine). For this study, on-site surveys during all four seasons for outdoor recreationists were investigated. This study suggests that the weights for KTCI are as follows: high temperature is 25.9%; average temperature is 20.9%, precipitation is 32.2%, windy speed is 11.6%, and the amount of cloud is 9.5%. This result is somewhat different from research by Mieczkowski (1985). This study also suggests that KTCI may consist of different climate indicators depending on the season and the outdoor activity. The KTCI suggested in this study may contribute to tourists and tourism enterprises to find the most appropriate season and place for socio-economic benefits.

    Abstract
    The purpose of study was to measure the tourism seasonality, comparing different regions in Korea. In the empirical analysis, this study measured and analyzed the seasonality of Gangwon and Jeju province tourism for the recent 13 years(1998-2010) and analyzed Gini's Coefficient, Seasonality ratio, the regression between the root causes of the seasonality and the tourism demand. The empirical analysis result showed that the demand was concentrated in October for Gangwon province tourism and meant that those months had higher seasonality than other months. Especially, Gangwon province tourism showed higher seasonality and shows imbalance of the number of tourists. On the othe hand, Jeju province tourism relatively showed balance of the number of tourists. Therefore Gangwon province is relatively more affected seasonality than Jeju province. This study would be a great help to understand the imbalanced tourism demand and could be used to supply the necessity and set the strategy to decrease tourism seasonality for the province tourism.

    Analysis on the Concepts of Fair Tourism: Studying for the Theorization

    Hwang Hee jeong | Lee, Hoon | 2011, 35(7) | pp.77~101 | Number Of Cites : 48 | Number Of Views : 681
    Abstract
    Along with ‘fair trade’, the term of ‘fair travel’ has been frequently used in the field of tourism study. However, to date, there is no globally accepted definition of fair tourism and travel. By examining the previous literatures, this study conceptualized fair travel in terms of its attributes and areas. It also compared the concept of fair travel and tourism with other types of related tourism such as sustainable tourism, green and ecotourism, and welfare tourism. A critical review of related literature suggests that fair travel has three different attributes such as fair relationship between stakeholders, procedural fairness, and fair distribution of profit. It also propose that fair travel has four different areas of fairness: travellers, local residents, ecological environment, and tourism industry. Based on this conceptualization, a model of relationships between the sustainable tourism, responsible tourism, green tourism, and welfare tourism was also provided.
