Sample text

The association proposed to develop 50 tourist areas, with detailed instructions attached. The association also gave suggestions on guidelines of development of China’s tourism resources, “With regard to tourism objects, the policy to be adopted should emphasize both domestic and overseas tourists and put particular emphasis during specific implementation according to specific circumstances; in terms of development and planning of tourist areas, we should focus on developed coastal areas, build priority sites in the inland, control the development of tourist areas in the west and shift the focus to the western region gradually during the “Ninth Five-Year Plan” period; as for the types of to-be-developed tourism resources, we should emphasize both cultural resources and natural resources, but should focus on cultural resources in the early stage, and then shift the focus gradually to the development of natural resources in the medium to long term; in respect of the general plan of the exploitation of tourism resources, we should have the idea of building integrated tourist areas by breaking the constraint of administrative districts, centring on a major city or important scenic areas and in combination with traffic conditions, and avoid building isolated tourist spots so as to give full play to the economic benefits of tourism facilities; in the near term, we should focus on coastal regions and the east and build a batch of seashore tourist resorts in coastal regions; and, in the inland, we should set up a batch of integrated tourist areas with unique characteristics according to resource characteristics, based on natural traffic conditions and relying on central cities.

Scholars only wrote some articles about earthscientific knowledge for scenic areas but seldom made any in-depth research. This period witnessed the growth of China’s modern earth-science and laid a theoretical foundation for the birth of tourism earth-science in China. The party’s opening up and economic stimulus policies brought tremendous changes to the political and economic situations in China. The rapidly growing national economy, increasing international contacts and flooding foreign tourists have sparked China’s tourism industry like a prairie fire.

The appearance of geoparks is an important mark of this period, and by inheriting the past and ushering in the future, tourism earth-science is forging ahead into a mature period. Although tourism earth-science has been recognized as a discipline both at China and abroad, it is still quite young and expected very much to be improved in terms of theoretical research, content and methodology, and particularly, it needs to be disseminated and extended both in China and in the world so as to attract the attention and concern of more people and receive their support.
