The purpose of this study is to determine the type of tourists based on the correlation between the motivation of travel with tourism activities. Data collection was done through an online questionnaire and distributed to several groups (nonprobability-convenience sampling). The collected data were then analyzed qualitatively using content analysis and quantitatively using principal component analysis, factor analysis, and multivariate correlation analysis. The results of the analysis revealed that there are six tourism motivations namely contemplation, social-exploration, restorative, culinary, opportunity, and novelty. In addition, there are four tourism activities namely physical activity, cognitive, affective, and adventure.
