Abstract: This paper reviews literature on travel destination choice and organizes these studies systematically. A cell-system structure is proposed to describe the psychological process of travel destination choice. When forming decisions on vacations, tourists gather information on potential destinations and evaluate visit intentions among potential destinations (cell). The visit intentions are successively compared while information is updated in the process (system). The cell-system structure provides a clear view of the psychological process of travel destination choice. Empirical studies based on the structure can provide further insights into why and how tourists choose travel destinations.
