The second issue of Global Gaming & Tourism Research for 2023 (with 8 issues in total), has been officially published by Macao Polytechnic University, and features a rich collection of papers on gambling and tourism studies.

In the field of tourism, the article “Latent Profile Analysis of Residents’ Place Citizenship Behavior”, written by Associate Professor Zhang Hui from Sun Yat-sen University, suggests that the attitudes and behaviors of residents in tourist destinations directly influence tourists’ attitudes and behaviors towards the destination. The paper recommends that tourism destinations manage and guide residents in a targeted manner based on their attitudes and behaviors so as to build a tourism destination brand. The article “Study Activities, Emotional Reactions, Patriotism, and Revisit Intention in Red Tourism”, written by Associate Professor Jose Weng Chou Wong and others from Macau University of Science and Technology, constructs and tests the “Red Tourism Study Activities – Awe/Pride – Patriotism-Future Travel Intention” model based on the theory of emotional evaluation. It concludes that red tourism study activities significantly and positively influence patriotism through the mediating effect of awe.
