Young Suk Kwon

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to develop tourism resources that can create promising economic benefits for the future society and provide basic data for creative regional development by looking at examples of successful development of the tourism industry that fits the Korean local cultural sensibility image. For this purpose, it explores the meaning of local cultural sensibility, classifies the local cultural resources into the material, human, and sociocultural resources, and focuses on countries that show global success stories about the value of cultural resources that each resource has. In addition, the study investigates the healing tourism policies each local government has implemented for the local cultural sensibility differentiated by region focusing on Busan, Gangwon-do, and Jeju-do of Korea. As a result, Busan has implemented a global marine culture tourism industry policy as an international city based on ocean sensibility. In Gangwon-do, the local cultural characteristics formed by the mountain cultural sensibility developed abundant natural resources in the high mountain area and food resources in the clean area, providing various local cultural resources to tourists. Finally, the healing tourism industry in the Jeju Island, the pearl of Korea, has promoted an attractive global tourism industry associating with various trails formed around Mount Halla along with the harmonization of the marine resources surrounding the entire island and the unique indigenous local culture of Jeju.
