ABSTRACT

This study investigates the differences of cognition and tourism behaviour for the selected attractive sites among residents of Kyongsang and Cholla provinces in South Korea. Dividing the name of places into 84 meshes, each of which had an area of 30㎞×30㎞ respectively, authors through questionnaires asked the 404 sampled residents whether they cognizes those meshes well. Trends surface analysis and t-test were used for the analysis. Most cognitions of the people were found confined to the locality he or she belongs, signifying that the spatial closure to the different locality tends to be serious and remain prevalent both in Kyongsang & Cholla provinces. Author finally states that this spatial closure could be somewhat relieved by activation of tourism activities
