Visitors Satisfaction With Entrance In Soraksan National Park

  • Published : 2004.02.01


Understanding aspects of the use of Korean representative Soraksan National Park and investigating the factors affecting visitors' decision-making, this study aims to suggest a positive development plan for the rational use of the national park. The questionnaire is for those who have visited Soraksan National Park more than once. This research shows that most of the visitors wish ‘entrance congestion’ to be solved by introducing a ‘previous reservation’ system and a non-polluting shuttle bus; therefore there is a chance that they could be introduced for the settlement of the existing problems.
