Abstract: Thechnological advancements have enabled contemporary immigrants to live in two worlds and maintain virtual and physical contact with their country of origin through leisure and tourism. While the transnational practices of first-generation immigrants have been well established, the extent of transnational leisure in the native-born second generation has not been explored. The purpose of this study is to examine the transnational practices of second-generation immigrants, specifically their leisure activities. Data were collected through semi-structured interviews with 26 second-generation Chinese-Americans on their immigrant background and transnational leisure experience. Findings revealed two distinct patterns in their transnational leisure: 1) the contrast between "traditional" versus "contemporary," and 2) the progression from "ways of being" to "ways of belonging".
