Abstract

This study explores exactly how leisure constraints and experiences, satisfaction and revisiting willingness are related among tourists to Dong-Shi Fisherman’s Wharf in Taiwan. Five hundred questionnaires are sent out. Of 500, a response rate of 81% was received. Statistical methods of t test, one-way ANOVA and path analysis of LISREL are used for analysis. Results indicate that tourists differ in leisure constraints with respect to their marriage status. In particular, single tourists show higher leisure constraints than married ones in terms of transportation constraints. Additionally tourists of different occupations differ in leisure experiences.

 

Key words: Leisure constraints, satisfactions, revisiting willingness.
