ABSTRACT

This study analysed the differences of residents' perception on the impact of 2009 Anmyeondo Floral Festival. Particularly, this study compared the perceptions of host community residents with those of neighbouring area residents. Data were collected from 564 people who lived in Anmyeondo and 4 neighbouring tourism destinations: Daecheon beach, Ducksan hot spring zone, Namdang-ri shore, First Mongsan-po octopus festival area. Results showed that the host community residents perceived more strongly on the positive-negative impacts of the Anmyeondo Floral Festival than neighboring area residents. However, the positive impacts of the festival were perceived not only by the hosting community resident but also by the neighbouring areas residents, which indicated the expansion of festival impacts. Implications and future research issues were also discussed.
