A study that will be published on the 1st of January 2019 was made by Xiaolong Sun from Guizhou Normal University, Bishu Lin from Xiamen University and Yonghong Chen from Guizhou Normal University shows that the the phenomenon of tourism commercialization in the context of China has transcended the research scope for Western commodification and has become a special topic for destination research, particularly in ethnic minority villages in China.

Limited research has as yet drawn attention to the relationship between commercialization and experience quality.

The main purpose of this research is to analyze the effect of tourism commercialization on tourists’ experience quality.

Specifically, the study examines the interrelationships between five main constructs: tourism commercialization, perceived value, experience quality, satisfaction, and behavioral intentions.

The results show that tourism commercialization has a positive influence on tourists’ experience quality and an indirect effect on others constructs, the implications are discussed with reference to the future development of tourism in the ethnic minority villages.
