With structural equation model this paper examines eWOM’s characteristics and the relation between the eWOM and word of mouth adoption and diffusion. The result of this study suggests: (1) Trust in eWOM is the most important factor of the word of mouth effect, (2) Trust is related to information vividness and consensus, (3) The study model indicates the interrelationship of factors extracted from the result of the analysis and provides us a platform to understand eWOM tourism information.
