Abstract

The emerging Chinese domestic and outbound tourism markets may be viewed as part of broader processes of historical change and development in China. Tourism is not a new stage in China's economic development, but is a renaissance and reinvigoration of established economic activity that has roots dating far back into history. History has influenced tourism growth in China in terms of both traveler motivations and destination choice. Literature has influenced perspectives of attractive destinations within China and the Chinese diaspora has influenced international travel. This article examines the significance of China's travel history for the current and future development of tourism in China
