The image of the city, which is one of the basic prerequisites of urban brand building, is composed of various aspects. These aspects can include architecture and urbanism, traffic and transport infrastructure, monuments, environmental features, range of services, culture, economic and science and technology characteristics of the city. Together, these factors create an overall image of the city in the minds of residents and tourists, affecting their attitudes and behavior in different contexts. Among these behaviors is the choice of travel time for tourists. In this research, this impact has been examined and investigated, to see whether is it possible to make the time travel of the city closer to the desired distribution of time by means of the modifications made to the image of the city, in other words, to counteract the seasonal phenomenon of tourism?
Based on the results of a questionnaire analysis distributed among 392 tourists in Mashhad city, it was found that among the dimensions of the image of the city, the promotion of the two dimensions of "economy and commerce" and "environment" can have the greatest impact on balancing the time distribution of travel throughout the year and tackling the seasonality phenomenon.
