ABSTRACT

This study uses innovative technology to track and analyze the spatial movement patterns of walking tourists’ behavior in urban village streets. The spatial movement of tourists is dynamic and successive. This present study uses a smart phone GPS application at the Buk Chon traditional villages, one of the most famous walking tourists attractions in Korea, in gathering the data. The spatial movement patterns of tourists’ walking behavior are classified as 3 types: straight pattern, circuit pattern and complex pattern. Tourism planners and policy makers of community-based tourism should focus on these limited patterns of spatial usage by these walking tourists to adopt policies with such measures in mind. Future research in this area is needed to determine the relationship between the environment and spatio-temporal patterns of walking tourists, as well as the influence of season, weather and demographic factors.
