ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to examine the direct influential relationship between residents' perception (economical, social, cultural, and environmental impacts) toward walking-tour course development and development support, and to investigate whether local resident attachment plays a moderating role in its relationship. A total of 350 questionnaires were distributed to local residents who live in proximately to the 7 and 8 Je-Ju Olle course. The usable 269 samples were analyzed by structural equation modelling analysis. Findings from this study are as follows: First, it is found that there are the significant causal relationships between antecedents(economical․cultural impacts and environmental impact) and consequences support for Ollegil development; Second, support for Ollegil tourism development was not influenced by social impacts; Lastly, it is identified that local attachment has a moderating effect on the relationship between economica and cultural impacts and support for Ollegil development, as well as between environmental impact and its support. The paper concludes with recommendations for sustainable and successful development of walking-tour tourism with theoretical and practical implications discussed.
