Satisfaction with Tourists’ Visit Intention. A total 132 respondents participated in this study. All five factors were found to have a positive relationship with Tourists’ Visit Intention. The Pearson correlation analysis conducted showed that Perceived Behavioural Control is the strongest factor influencing Tourists’ Visit Intention.The other four factors showed a weak relationship with Tourists’ Visit Intention.Apart from Perceived Behavioural Control, one demographic factor which is Preferred Tourists’ Destination showed a significant relationship with Tourists’ Visit Intention.Intention can explain how an action was understood
