Abstract

Researchers have suggested that leisure and tourism are closely related to each other. While the leisure-tourism connection has been observed indirectly in previous research, as yet, few studies have empirically investigated the psychological connection between leisure and tourism activity choices. Moreover, little attention has been given to the relationship between physically active and non-active leisure and tourism choices. Therefore, this study examined the leisure-tourism connection of both physically active (n=316) and non-physically active respondents (n=258) by using four latent variables, leisure involvement, leisure habit, tourism motivation, and tourism behavior. The leisure-tourism causal relationship was found to be statistically significant among the physically active respondents and as such supports trends evident in the existing literature.

Comparing the Active and on-Active Leisure-Tourism Connection: Leisure Involvement, Leisure Habit, Tourism Motivation, and Tourism Behavior

Researchers have suggested that leisure and tourism are closely related to each other. While the leisure-tourism connection has been observed indirectly in previous research, as yet, few studies have empirically investigated the psychological connection between leisure and tourism activity choices. Moreover, little attention has been given to the relationship between physically active and non-active leisure and tourism choices. Therefore, this study examined the leisure-tourism connection of both physically active (n=316) and non-physically active respondents (n=258) by using four latent variables, leisure involvement, leisure habit, tourism motivation, and tourism behavior. The leisure-tourism causal relationship was found to be statistically significant among the physically active respondents and as such supports trends evident in the existing literature.
