Abstract

The purpose of this study is to use spillover theory to examine the impacts of touristification on different life domains and on residents’ overall quality of life (QoL). Specifically, this study investigates how touristification influences residents’ life domain satisfaction, which influences their overall QoL. The study examines the relationship between satisfaction with residents’ overall QoL and their support for tourism development, based on social exchange theory. The research model shows that community and emotional impacts of touristification negatively affected both life domain satisfaction and support for future tourism development; additionally, life domain satisfaction positively affected QoL, and QoL positively affected support for future tourism development.
