This study attempts to segment Chinese tourists visiting the US based on items representing motivations. A factor-cluster approach was used to analyze the data. Factor analysis resulted in six underlying motivation factors: Relaxation/Escape, Prestige, Knowledge, Job Fulfillment, Entertainment, and Novelty. Based on the six motivation factors, cluster analysis identified three homogeneous groups of respondents. The distinct groups were identified as High Brow Traveler, Enthusiastic Traveler, and Reluctant Traveler. Marketing implications were provided based on the findings.
