Abstract

This research was designed to investigate the cultural differences between Asian tourists and Australian hosts and the impact of these differences on tourist-host social interaction and satisfaction. The study aimed to achieve three major objectives: 1) to identify the cultural differences between Asian tourists and Australian hosts; 2) to identify the dimensions of the cultural differences between Asian tourists and Australian hosts; and 3) to identify the key indicators of the cultural dimensions critical for an explanation of social interaction between Asian tourists and Australian hosts, and Asian tourist satisfaction.
