    by Tshepho J. Chauke, Ndivhuwo N. Tshipala, Liezel Boshoff 
    Abstract: Motivation, which originates in consumer behaviour, plays a significant role in explaining tourist demand. Several researchers have found that adventure tourists are motivated by adventure activities that contain the elements of risk, challenge, sensation, excitement, the locus of control, escape, and social reasons. The objective of this study was to examine tourist motivations to participate in adventure tourism activities in Gauteng, South Africa. The data were collected using a self-administered questionnaire. Respondents were chosen using a snowball sampling technique. Descriptive statistics and inferential statistics were applied, and the results were presented using tables. The results revealed that fun, excitement and exploring new destinations are the main motivating factors for adventure tourists to participate in adventure tourism activities. Furthermore, the results revealed that the respondents mostly participated in adventure activities that are far from their home, and they only started participating in these activities at a certain stage of their lives.

    by Moo Chia May, Cheng Chun Yi, Quah Wei Boon 
    Abstract: Artificial intelligence (AI) is increasingly becoming an everyday reality to support human capability, simplify human life, and improve human ability to use information. The study aims to investigate the perceptions that lead to the acceptance of Malaysians on AI technology for Malaysia’s travel and tourism industry. Explanatory research and quantitative method were applied. 100 Malaysians aged 18 and above were surveyed. Questionnaires were distributed at Armenian Street, Penang. Meanwhile, online questionnaires were carried out. Data gained was analysed using Statistical Packages of Social Science (SPSS). Findings showed a relationship between perceived benefits and acceptances of AI, whereas there is no relationship between perceived risks and acceptance of AI. The results indicated a significant difference in age among Malaysians on their acceptance of AI. This finding and contribution could be highly beneficial to some parties, government agencies, tourism-related businesses, and academicians that are concerned with the development of AI.
    Keywords: artificial intelligence; Malaysians; perceptions; acceptances; travel and tourism industry.
