Abstract: Data originating from some specific fields, for in-stance tourist arrivals, may exhibit a high degree of fluctuations as well as non-linear characteristics due to time varying behaviors. This paper proposes a new hybrid method to perform prediction for such data. The proposed hybrid model of wavelet transform and long-short-term memory (LSTM) recurrent neural network (RNN) is able to capture non-linear attributes in tourist arrival time series. Firstly, data is decomposed into constitutive series through wavelet transform. The decomposition is expressed as a function of a combination of wavelet coefficients, which have different levels of resolution. Then, LSTM neural network is used to train and simulate the value at each level to find the bias vectors and weighting coefficients for the prediction value. A sliding windows model is employed to capture the time series nature of the data. An evaluation is conducted to compare the proposed model with other RNN algorithms, i.e., Elman RNN and Jordan RNN, as well as the combination of wavelet transform with each of them. The result shows that the proposed model has better performance in terms of training time than the original LSTM RNN, while the accuracy is better than the hybrid of wavelet-Elman and the hybrid of wavelet-Jordan.
