The research shows that the accessibility to the tourism destination mainly involves three aspects: technology or transport accessibility, ecological accessibility, and cultural accessibility. Technologically, people could go to anywhere on earth, but economically, transport investment is restricted by investment efficiency, and mass tourism means lower transport costs. Ecological accessibility means some destinations could be admitted to while some destinations not under the condition of ecological regulation or natural environment. Cultural accessibility refers to the attitudes to exotic visitors for local residents and local governments.
