According to the model proposed by Crompton (1979), the "push" factors are escape, social interactions and relaxation, whereas the "pull" factor includes promotion, attraction and facilities. A total of 200 sets of questionnaires were distributed to the tourists (both domestic and International) in Sabah Tea, Ranau. A total of 154 respondents were successfully collected.
