Chris Ryan and Songshan (Sam) Huang: Conclusion


In only a quarter of a century, China has changed from being a place with almost no modern tourism to become a major player in international tourism with a massive domestic tourism sector. This collection of papers provides insights, predominantly from the perspective of Chinese scholars, on many aspects of tourism in China. It is an indispensable source of informed interpretations of the achievements and challenges of Chinese tourism. It introduces Chinese scholarship to an international audience and is important reading for those wishing to understand tourism in China, especially the relationships between tourism and development, in this rapidly-changing global power. Geoffrey Wall, University of Waterloo, Canada "Tourism in China: Destinations, Planning and Experiences" is a timely and valuable addition to the understanding of all kinds of destinations in China, with studies focusing on China as a major destination to specific places like Lijiang, Yunnan and Qinhunshan, Anhui as regional destinations. The uniqueness of this excellent book is that it was contributed to by researchers who know both the nature of tourism development in China and the rest of the world. Their insights in tourism destination development and planning will be valuable to both researchers and practitioners. Hanqin Qiu Zhang, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Hong Kong
