Abstract: Perceived value is an important concept and theory in the studies of consumer experience and the quality of experiences.This concept has recently been employed to study tourist experience.This paper selects Water Splashing Festival at Xishuangbanna,an ethnic group,Thai's traditional festival as an example,through which Chinese tourists' perceived values of such a traditional festival are analyzed and verified.Based on qualitative interviews and previous literature,the paper constructs a scale of festival tourists' perceived values and measures festival tourist experiences in terms of this scale.It also tests the relationship between tourist satisfaction and tourist perceived values.It is found that tourist perceived values of the Water Splashing Festival consist of seven dimensions: cultural epistemic value,hedonic value,social value,price and convenience value,service value,conditional value and overall value.It is also found that the tourist satisfaction varies with different perceived values.Differing from western scholars' literature,this paper reveals that cultural epistemic value,as a pragmatic value,offers the greatest contribution to Chinese domestic tourist satisfaction.This becomes a contrast to the western tourist satisfaction which mainly comes from hedonistic value.

Secondary data from the Kebbi State Tourism Board, Birnin-Kebbi was generated. The data were analysed using descriptive statistics such as frequency distribution, percentages and means while inferential statistics comprising regression model were also used to analyse data. The study showed that variation in the interval between successive festivals explained the largest proportion of changes in fish weight at the festival. Furthermore, variation in the number of tourists explained the largest proportion of changes in the total income from the festival. It is recommended that the interval between successive festivals should be increased in order to increase fish productivity and boost the community competiveness at the festival. The tourism potential of the festival should be boosted so as to increase the tourist attraction of the festival with a resultant increase in the income generated from the festival. Private firm or any limited liability company should be invited to take over the total re-organization of the festival as an effective commercial venture.

Abstract: During the last decade the cruise industry has been the tourism niche that has experienced the most rapid growth of all. However, this form of tourism is still in its infancy and has not been relatively well researched. The aim of the paper is to identify average age of cruisers on the Corridor 7. It remains unknown whether similar researches have ever been conducted. The article demonstrates the dominance of 'silver hair' cruisers on the Corridor 7. Furthermore, we found that the age groups 60-84 were the most represented in with the domination of age groups 70-74 and 65-69. The purpose of this study was to at least support a timely adaptation to trends in the cruising industry. The results of the research may initiate further studies on the cause and effect connections between this type of traveling and resources of receptive countries, upon which the travels are based, both aiming at adequate design and launching of the tourist offer, i.e. the optimal development of receptive countries through sustainable tourism.
