Agricultural heritage is a new type of heritage.Its concept originates from a program known as"Globally Important Agricultural Heritage System"(GIAHS) initiated by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations(FAO) in 2002.Currently,study on agricultural heritage is still at its initial stage.Therefore,some controversies exist in terms of the concept.We might as well call it agricultural heritage for the time being.The paper tries to study agricultural heritage as a kind of tourism resource.It is found that agricultural heritage tourism belongs to heritage tourism,which makes it different from rural tourism and agricultural tourism in essence.As a kind of tourism resource,agricultural heritage is characterized by distinct features,wide range of distribution,high fragility and sensitivity and strong sense of participation and comprehensiveness.These features are important factors that should be taken into consideration in the development of tourism resources and management in agricultural heritage destinations.
