dc.description.abstractThis study attempted to explore the relationship between the destination image of one region (whole destination image) and those of its inner areas (part destination images) via a core-periphery structural perspective. To date, empirical studies on this topic remain rare. By content analyzing online reviews, the relationship of memory associations in the whole and part destination images was analyzed. Our results show that whole destination image shares a number of associations with part destination images. Yet the percentages of shared image associations on whole destination image are not equal among part destination images. The status (core/periphery) of shared associations may not be the same in whole and part destination images. Besides, core associations of part destination images are more likely to be found in whole destination image compared to periphery associations of part destination images. Conceptual and managerial implications of the findings were discussed.
