Abstract

China is ranked the second in the world in terms of number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The rapid economic growth of the country, however, has been associated with the deterioration of the physical and cultural environment. Thus, any discussion on the relationship between planning and representation of heritage for tourism development and the notions of modernity, sustainability and identity from a Chinese perspective is of immediate academic and practical interest.
