The spatial patterns of the tourism land of Ciqikou ancient town in Chongqing from 1998 to 2009 are established through household survey. Great changes have taken place in the spatial pattern of the tourism land of Ciqikou throughout the years from 1998 to 2009. The period of 2005 to 2009 sees the most rapid increase in tourism land. The early stage witnesses the dominance of some big businesses which occupy lands with comparatively large units, and later, small businesses play a more and more important role. From the spatial pattern, it can be found that the early tourism lands concentrated from the north to the south along the main street and that pattern gradually evolved into a balanced layout that expanded to the outside streets. Tourism and catering business, shopping and entertainment are the three of the most important functions in the Ciqikou historical and cultural block, but the importance varies in different periods. Considering the number of businesses, tourism and shopping is the most important tourism function. As for the land use, catering function exhibits evident advantage in different periods except the period from 2002 to 2005. Moreover, the land for tourism and catering evolved from a scattering pattern to a pattern concentrating in both parts of the south and the north. The function of catering shows a trend of expanding to the streets outside the center. The land for tourism and shopping concentrates on the southern entrance of the historical block. The land for tourism and entertainment comparatively concentrates in the middle of the block and the northern area along the river.
