A travel demand model for Mainland Chinese tourists to Hong Kong



A travel demand model for Mainland Chinese tourists to Hong Kong



Tourism Management 18(8): 593-597



The purpose of the study was to determine what exogenous variables best explained the travel demand for Mainland Chinese tourists to Hong Kong. The 12 years (1984-1995) annual time series data of 'number of Mainland Chinese tourist arrivals', 'China disposable income per capita', 'consumer price indices in Hong Kong and China' and 'exchange rates' was used to develop a travel demand model. Seven exogenous variables were selected for the model through a literature review.
