As a kind of special-theme tourism, gastronomy tourism has become one of the fastest-growing tourism markets in the world in recent years and has attracted increasing attention from academia and industry. Based on a definition of the concept of gourmet tourism, this study systematically summarizes and analyses the effect of the driving force of tourism demand, tourist experience, tourism motivation, and tourism preferences on tourists' behavioral intention in food tourism, and the pulling force of the tangible and intangible nature of destination food culture on their behavioral intention. The findings show that the factors of pushing internal force and pulling external force affect the behavior of gourmet tourists. The internal factors are tourists' tourism demands, tourist experience, tourism motivation, and tourism preference, whereas the external factors are the tangible and intangible nature of the destination food culture. Accordingly, the study constructs a theoretical framework for the influence of the push and pull factors of food tourism on tourists' behavior. This paper provides a prospect for the future research direction of gastronomy tourism from the perspective of research content, theory, and method, which can enrich and develop investigation in this field at the theoretical level and provide references and ideas for the development of the food tourism market at the practical level.

Key words: food culture    gourmet tourists    gastronomy tourism    pushing force    pulling force
