Study on the spacial bhavlor of tourists is one of the important research fields of tourism geography.On the basis of much on-the-spot investigation,the author,taking Huangshan,Jiuhua and Quyun Mountain which all are national mountain resorts for examples,expounds two questions:(1)making use of spacial use curves of resorts to analyse movable space of tourists in the three mountains,we discover the value of mountain resorts affects the movable space of tourists.Generally,the higher the value, the wider the movable space and the more complicated the movable spacial configuration.As time passed, the movable space changed. As for Huangshan Mountain,the change of movable space of tourists is beneficial to the tourism devdlopment.(2) Through the contrast of travelling spacial behavior between tourists in Huangshan Mountain and ones in Yellowtone Park,we discover,with the lift of the social and economic Positions of tourists and the increase of distances from the residence of tourists to the resorts,the travelling spacial behavior of the tourists tends to complicate.
