Abstract

The study intends to identify the influences of the tourism industry on the local people’s living standards through economic, socio-cultural, environmental, and health & hygiene during the post-pandemic period. The study is a descriptive research and the data are quantitative in nature. Primary data has been required for this study and it has been considered to collect the data by the questionnaire survey method. A structural questionnaire has been designed and collected data from 370 local people in Cox’s Bazar using the five-point Likert scale and convenient sampling. Data were analyzed through SPSS 25.0 using Descriptive analysis, Data reliability test, Correlation analysis, and Regression analysis. The study identified that among the four variables such as economic, sociocultural, environmental, and health and hygiene factors, the economic and health & hygiene variables have positive and significant influences on the host community’s living standards. Obviously, the study has certain limitations in consideration of the location and the chosen sample size as both do not represent the country as a whole. This paper contributes to the Governments, NGOs, and tourism industry to make contemporary tourism policies to serve tourists by keeping in mind the host community in this post-covid-19 situation.
