Abstract

Distance decay defined as demand or volume decreases exponentially with distance increases. It is a gravity model of human geography that used to understand human behaviours, movements, and tourism flows, particularly in tourism planning and management. Thus, this paper attempts to outline a systematic literature review to provide a comprehensive understanding with different distance decay thematic studied in tourism research from the year 2000 - 2020. The review identified the research focuses with the research scopes studied and contribute to conceptual and theoretical basic understanding.

Keywords: distance decay; sustainable tourism development; science mapping.
