Chapter 7 (Page no: 117)

The Yangzi River tourism zone.

This chapter describes the tourism activity along the Yangzi River (China) and the river's main attraction, the 'Three Gorges'. It also examines the need for a 'Yangzi River Tourism Region'. Currently the river has no unified market approach and as discussed in this chapter, the lack of a regional approach has created a number of difficulties.
