Abstract:

This article examines the patterns and travel habits of recent South Korean immigrants to New Zealand and the growing significance of what has been called 'ethnic tourism' with a focus on the impact of family ties and kinship in motivating travel for ethnic reunion. This paper is exploratory in nature and develops a number of themes which require further research and development to establish the extent to which such patterns are indicative of global processes shaping the travel habits of immigrant groups. A survey of Korean-New Zealanders conducted in 1998 and the results are evaluated to establish the implications for ethnic outbound travel and the New Zealand travel industry.
