Abstract: This thesis is the first major study to examine coastal tourism in China. It is concerned with the coast, the interaction between the coastal system and the human system, the stakeholdersa?? involvement in tourism, and sustainability. The research follows the spatial scale from a nation to a municipality, an island and a specific beach. It examines coastal tourism development at these spatial scales within the context of Chinaa??s economic reform from a planned economy to a market economy, and Chinaa??s political reform of decentralization. The result in this research such as the resort landscape evolution cycle, integrated coastal tourism management approach as well as the set of sustainability indicators could be used as a reference for other coastal resorts in China and provide useful insights into Chinese coastal tourism development.
