The tourism industry and AR act as important factors to diversify the tourism industry by combining them with one another. Currently, the advent of mobile smartphones and AR interactive is expected to play a major role in improving tourists' experiences and promoting tourism. AR's high entertainment characteristics, realism and strong interaction can be actively used as a major advantage in promoting tourism. This paper presents some appropriate examples of how AR interactive design is used in tourism marketing through various use cases where AR interactive design is used in tourism. Furthermore, a detailed analysis of the Magical Gulangyu verifies the descriptions listed in the text and presents the direction of future research.

관광산업과 AR(증강현실, Augmented Reality)은 서로 접목하여 관광산업을 다양화하는 중요한 요소로 작용한다. 현재, 모바일 스마트폰과 AR 인터렉티브의 등장은 관광객들의 체험 개선과 관광 홍보에 큰 역할을 할 것으로 예상된다. AR의 높은 엔터테인먼트 성격, 현실감 그리고 강력한 상호작용은 관광 홍보에 큰 장점으로 작용하여 적극적으로 사용될 수 있다. 본 논문은 AR 인터렉티브 디자인이 관광 분야에 사용되는 다양한 이용 사례를 통해 AR 인터렉티브 디자인이 관광 마케팅에 어떻게 사용되는지 몇 가지 적절한 예시를 보여준다. 또 <신비로운 구랑위(신기고랑서(神奇鼓浪屿))>에 대한 구체적인 분석을 통해 본문을 통해 나열한 서술들을 검증하고 이에 관한 향후 연구 방향을 제시한다.
