The Impact of the Korean Wave on the arrival of tourists, a comparison of the perspective of Tourists and Natives - Research

Questionnaire

 

Tourism in South Korea: The Impact of the Korean Wave on the arrival of tourists, a comparison of the perspective of Tourists and Natives

 

First of all, I would like to thank you for taking part in this research. I´m a 3rd year Cultural Anthropology student at the University of Palacky in Czech Republic. This questionnaire is a part of the research for my bachelor's thesis on Tourism in South Korea.

All of the questions in this questionnaire are open-ended, which means that the respondent is free to answer the questions as she/ he deems appropriate. Please, write longer answers, don´t answer with just one word or one sentence. Take it as a form of a dialogue, where you are free to talk as much as you would like. The longer your answers are going to be, the more accurate the research will be.

In the questionnaire, I will not ask any of your personal data other than those listed in column respondent, because it's better to write which age groups I looked at, while doing my research. But, otherwise, I won't ask for any personal information.

If there are any questions about my research, feel free to contact me on my email:

If the email address does not work, please send the answers on my personal email:
