AbstractThe rapidly developing rural tourismindustry in China has deeply influenced thelivelihoods of rural households. This study comparesthe impact of rural tourism development in poor areason the farmers' livelihoods, based on the SustainableLivelihoods Framework proposed by the UnitedKingdom's Department for InternationalDevelopment. Gougezhuang, a tourist village, andJiaojiekou, a non-tourist village, both located inYesanpo Tourism District in the state-level poverty-stricken Laishui County, Hebei Province, wereselected as case studies. The livelihood models of thetwo villages show great differentiation after 2o yearsof tourism development. Gougezhuang Village hasbeen driven by the tourism industry and farmers areemployed locally, enjoying a relatively higher-incomelife, with a developmental livelihood model. Incontrast, farmers in Jiaojiekou Village earn theirliving mainly by leaving home to work in the city.They have a low income, with a survival livelihoodmodel, supported by part-time business. Consideringthat the two villages are adjacent and have similardevelopment backgrounds, the analysis resultsindicate that rural tourism has an apparent location-specific effect on poverty alleviation andsocioeconomic develonment, but the development ofrural tourism is limited regarding large-scale povertyalleviation efforts in poor areas. To implement a pro-poor-tourism strategy and achieve sustainabledevelopment, it is necessary to implementcomprehensive management measures to change thelocal conditions of rural settlements and make full useof the spillover effect of tourist consumption.
