This chapter investigates the factors responsible for the changing competitiveness in international tourism of eight countries in Southeast and East Asia. The findings reveal that barriers of tourist services matter and that when China began to encourage tourists, the attractiveness of other destinations in the region fell. The result also indicates that individual tourist decisions appear to be quite responsive to changes in the relative costs of different tourist destinations.

Keywords:   international tourism, competitiveness, Southeast Asia, East Asia, China, relative costs, tourist destinations
