This study explores how individuals’ cognitive and affective country images influence destination beliefs, and how these beliefs are associated with individuals’ travel intentions. The findings suggest that both the affective and cognitive country images are positively related to the destination beliefs, and the destination beliefs are positively associated with the travel intentions.
