The collected data verified the suitability of the structured model and the causality of each concept. Findings: First, local governments should provide regular education to local citizens on the problems and side effects of unauthorized photography. Second, local governments in charge of the culture and tourism zones will have to measure the stress index on a regular basis for the local people, and also develop programs for the local people and tourists to participate together to relieve the stress of the residents of the cultural and tourism areas. Third, local governments will need to provide necessary education to tourists after they arrive at a travel guide or tourist destination to prevent them from infringing on the privacy of the local people. Fourth, local governments should notify tourists of the seriousness of environmental pollution and legal regulations in advance and distribute small-scale garbage bags free of charge to create conditions for tourists to take the initiative. Finally, local governments should give local residents a sense that the area will be revitalized only when a large number of tourists visit the country. Improvements/Applications: It provides implications for establishing a practical cultural policy direction for the local residents to the policy proponent of Chungcheongbuk-do policy proposer and the local government policy promotion department.
