Discuss about the Literature Review for Reflexivity of Knowledge.
Lai & Li (2015) argued that people do not want to associate themselves so much with the tourism because tourism is not the mainline or the major function. People take tourism as a fun or leisure activity only. This is the reason that people would not always participate in the tourism events and activities. People would prioritize their work and in most of the cases the activities related to tourism would not be in the priority list of people. There could be cases when the people would not get the free time from their household chores to participate in the tourism activities.
Fodness (2016) did a quantitative study on more than 100 married couples. Authors highlighted that the married couples would not participate in the tourism activities, as they would not have enough time for the same. Another constraint in front of the married couple is the financial constraint. The study revealed that these two constraints (time and money) are the key constraints for which the married couples do not participate in the tourism activities. The married couples have the lot of dependency like the care of their children and family and this could also be an added constraint for the married couple. In order to overcome all the internal and external dependencies, the married couple may not have the time to actually think of the tourism and tourism related activities.
Ashworth (2015) highlighted that the activities related to the tourism demand time. It is observed that only those people can contribute to the tourism are the people that have time in hand. Author also argued that the married people do not have enough plenty time so that are not able to participate much in the tourism activities. Typically, the participation in the tourism activities also depends on the personal preferences and the taste of individuals. It is observed that tourism is a like a hobby and all the people may not have interest in tourism. Therefore, the people those do not appreciate the tourism may not want to participate or get indulge in the tourism related activities.
