中文摘要

The purpose of this study was to investigate the sport tourism motivations and constraints of the citizens in Taiwan; and to analyze the profiles of their participating classification and nature of experience. Questionnaires were distributed to all the Taiwan areas that engage in sport tourism. The subjects completed the questionnaires in the one year survey period of 1st August 2004 to 31st July 2005. By the end of the data collection, a total of 3,840 usable responses were included in this study. The result shows that (1) the main motivations were “recreation & social”, “participation of specific activities”, “satisfaction of personal curiosities”, “exercise & fitness” and “time-killing & excitement”, and these five factors accounted for 70.38% of the variance; (2) the main constraints were “structural factor”, “service factor”, and “personal factor”, and these three factors accounted for 68.31% of the variance; (3) the sequence of sport tourism participating classification was as follows: walking (14.62%), hot spring SPA(7.82%), swimming (7.36%), playing basketball (5.80%), jogging (5.59%), playing badminton (5.16%), hiking (5.07%), cycling (4.67%), playing table tennis (3.27%), and SPA (2.91%); and (4) the main sport tourism experiences were concluded as “natural environmental challenge”(54.42%), “interpersonal contest” (29.01%), “artificial environmental challenge”(15.49%), and “interpersonal combat”(1.08%). Regarding the analysis in the tourism resources experience, the data was as follows: 42.70% for natural landscape experience, 41.94% for manmade cultural/entertainment experience, 13.50% for natural coastal experience, and 1.86% for manmade historic experience.
