Abstract: An increasing number of mainland Chinese tourists are coming to Taiwan and offer material benefits for many vendors on Taipei's night markets. Using in-depth interviews, this thesis examines the effect of mainland Chinese tourists on attitudes of the night market vendors at Ningxia Night Market in Taipei on China related topics. The difference in economic transactions with Chinese tourists offers a possibility to study the influence of the related rational incentives and contact on policy attitudes and opinions toward: Chinese tourists, cross-Strait economic integration and the alienation from the PRC.
Taking into account the variables of business transactions and identity, the study analyzes 22 interviews of night market vendors and suggests that vendors with more business transactions with Chinese tourists tend to have more favorable views on two of the three investigated attitudes. Vendors with more benefits from the increase in tourists also show a considerable amount of pragmatism in their opinions, which leads the study to assume a strong positive influence of economic incentives when compared to another possible factor like contact. While negative effects can be caused by identity, contact and incentives, the positive influence in this framework seems to be mainly affected by the incentives.
