This article explores the social significance behind the hedonistic tourist phenomenon, and proposes that the tour behaviors should be understood in terms of the capitalist labor/leisure structure. It is argued that the tour desire was created by the work. This article analyses the data of 2007 “General Social Survey in Taiwan” to inspect the relations among tour behavior, tour desire, and working status. Three steps of analysis were proceeded: (1) to describe the social factors affecting tourism, pointed out that young, highly educated, high-income, full-time worker have a tendency to engage in tour behavior; (2) to emphasize that “working status” factors has a special impact on the tour behavior and desire, ie, full-time work seems to incur more tour desire than others; (3) to point out the tourism has a sociological implication “to escape from everyday life”. At last, this article uses the SEM technique to certificate the theoretical model of the statistical data, and attempts to elaborate a theoretical argument that the modern hedonistic tourism is not the antithesis of the “labor,” but a part of the labor-leisure structure.
