      Abstract

      This study intends to capture evidence of a successful eco-tourism development project implemented in Qinkou village in Yunnan province, Southwest China. It explains how the tourism is used as a way to move the village towards modernization in Yunnan, and examines the roles of three key stakeholders: the local communities, local governments and the architects/planners in tourism development practices. In particular, from the viewpoint of planners and architects, the study investigates the factors that influence the design and decision making in the design process about the villagers, livelihood, environmental and development problems.
