ABSTRACT

Tourists tend to visit attraction spots influenced by various factors. This study, which is based on the analysis of several measurable factors extracted from previous studies and references, revealed that most of tourist attractions were affected by GNI per capita as well, an increase in fuel prices was also one of factors in island areas such as Jeju. In addition, Asan City located in a hot spring area was influenced by the surrounding population and fuel prices. On the other hand, Everland, which is a leading tourist attraction in the metropolitan area, was visited by many tourists regardless of any specific factors due to its easy accessibility. As such, there was a slight difference in factors in each travel destination. Also, unlike the previous studies predicting that income and the price index had a significant impact on tourists, this study showed such factors as irrelevant. Nevertheless several research limitations, the study can be more valued in the further research, adopting cross-sectional research and identifying psychological characteristics of tourists.
