Abstract:

In tourism discourses, landscape is the objective manifestation of the interaction between tourism behavior and tourism destination. It links the objective existence and subjective perception, the past and future, and the local and global. It can be a powerful tool to manage the relationship between human and nature in rural tourism. Starting from the interpretation of the concept of landscape and landscape management system, this study systematically examined the essence and context of rural tourism landscape management and the incorporation of landscape management into the human-environment relationship research of rural tourism. The main conclusions include: 1) The ideological logic of rural tourism landscape management includes the balance between anthropocentrism and non-anthropocentrism, the balance between instrumental rationality and value rationality, and the resolution of the paradox between landscape and sustainable development. 2) From the perspective of human geography, rural tourism landscape management is mainly based on the place, space, and landscape theoretical paradigms. The three explain the concept of human-environment relationship from different angles. 3) The technical route of rural tourism landscape management includes two main stages: landscape planning and landscape protection. Landscape ecology methods can be used in quantitative research, and landscape semiotics methods can be used for reference in qualitative research. 4) The research framework of rural tourism landscape management takes ecological issues as the core, and subjectivity, temporal, and spatial issues as the bases.

Key words: landscape management, rural tourism, human-environment relationship, place, space, landscape
