Consequently, it is logical to conclude that elderly people, with the condition of health predisposition, also have greater potential for using leisure time for travel and tourism, which is influencing the trend of growth among older populations in order to take advantage of tourist and sightseeing opportunities during the tourism season (Gu et al, 2016).…”

“…Other examples include work by Nyaupane [29]. Such general overviews of travel patterns by older adults were not limited to the US, but were also attempted among other places in Poland by Omelan [30] and China, by Gu [12]. Both studies focused on differences within the older adults demographic, with the study by Omelan finding differences based on place of residence (rural vs Urban), and the study by Gu analyzing through logistic regression the impact of well-being, gender and social status on older adults travel patterns.…”
