The research on the spatial structure of tourism impact- domain of tourism areas not only can enrich theories of tourism areas and tourism impact, but also is an important complementary tool to help develop tourism areas. The paper discusses the concept and elements of tourism economic impact domain-tourism labor, tourism revenue and tourism perception, and then analyses the tourism economic impacts resulted from the development of the Badaling tour area. After selecting six sample areas around the Badaling tour area, the author conducted detailed site surveys in six sample areas and processed the data of tourism economy by using the method of tourism location quotient. The authors finally analyse the tourism domain value of Badaling tour area and propose the spatial model of the tourism economic impact domain by the way of element superposition.

Key words: Badaling , Beijing, element superposition, Tourism Area, tourism economic impact domain, tourism location quotient
