ABSTRACT

Until recently, there has been little attention paid to the study of convergence within the tourism industry. This new research challenges creation models of convergence tourism based on local culture by focusing on rural tourism. This is because the rural form has been classified as a value creation type of convergence tourism. To accomplish this study objective, theoretical review, deep interview, and empirical analysis were carried out simultaneously. Using semi questionnaires and interview data, results were analyzed and then studied empirically for a village in which rural tourism based local culture had been promoted. We found that the model of convergence tourism based local culture was defined by driving forces, processes and consequences of convergence. In this research, driving forces of convergence were present in local resources as well as the process of recreation within the local culture. Furthermore, the most significant consequence of convergence was the creation of eco culture tourism. This research suggests that convergence tourism would make a successful business model for the future tourism industry. Finally, this research acknowledges the limitations of this study as well as suggesting directions for future research in this field.
