Developing a Framework for Assessing Visitors’ Responses to Chinese Cities

WithPhilip L. Pearce, Yongzhi Wu, Aram Son

In broad terms, the core aim of this work lies in presenting a new integrative

framework for the assessment of visitor responses to cities in China. Further, by

considering ongoing studies in one Chinese city, that of Xi’an in western China, the

study seeks to illustrate some of the key elements of the suggested framework. An

assessment of the potential usefulness of the framework will be considered as a third

and concluding aim of this research.
