The formation of image has been described by Reynolds (1965, p. 69), as one of the first commentators, as the development of a mental construct based on a few impressions chosen from a flood of information. In the case of place image, this ‘flood of information’ has many sources, including promotional sources (advertising and brochures), the opinions of others (family/friends, travel agents), media reporting (newspapers, magazines, television news reporting and documentaries) and popular culture (motion pictures, literature); ‘Furthermore, by actually visiting the destination, the image will be affected and modified based upon first hand information and experience’ (Echtner and Ritchie 2003, p. 38).
