Abstract

The primary aim of this paper is to explore the dimensions of traditional breakfast experience of international tourists visiting Istanbul. To achieve this aim, the netnography approach, which is a qualitative study method, was performed using the User-Generated Content (UGC) technique. The data were gathered in July 2022 from TripAdvisor platform and were sequenced from the latest to the earliest reviews (n=1184). The results of this study demonstrated that the traditional breakfast experience has six major components: authenticity, memorability, novelty, local hospitality, food attributes, togetherness, and social interactions. Significant theoretical and managerial implications were discussed.
