Abstract [en]

This study is using Hengdian World Studios as an example to provide first-hand

material through questionnaire surveys, aiming to fill research gap and deepen the

knowledge about how the impacts of film-induced tourism perceived by local

residents in Dongyang City of Eastern China. The specific objectives of this study are

twofold: Firstly, to investigate the overall perceptions and attitudes of residents

towards the development of Dongyang City as a film-induced tourism destination.

Secondly, to determine the socio-demographics factors and the degree of involvement

in the tourism sectors influencing residents’ perceptions and attitudes towards the

development of Dongyang City as a tourism destination. The first conclusion to stand

out is that, generally, residents in Dongyang City show more optimistic view about

tourism, perceiving its positive impacts more strongly than its negative impacts. The

second conclusion of this study reveal that residents’ attitudes are significantly

diverse depending on their socio-demographic characteristics and the degree of

involvement in the tourism sectors. This study contributes to scholars and tourism

developers in developing destinations, especially valuable for film-induced tourism

destinations where tourism is in an initial phase. Since a harmonious community

cannot be formed in isolation without regard for the local residents’ cooperation and

participation, tourism managers will be better propose and implement planning

polices for the sustainability of tourism to minimize adverse effects if residents’

attitudes and perceptions are taken into account
