Exploring social interactions of backpackers



Exploring social interactions of backpackers



Annals of Tourism Research 28(1): 50-67



This study employs the concepts of social situation analysis to examine the nature of interactions among backpackers in an attempt to better understand their informal networks of information dissemination. 59 in-depth interviews with backpackers in 17 different hostels throughout Australia (August-September 1995). Results indicate that gathering information on destinations/businesses is a motivation for them to interact with one another.
