Abstract: This study evaluates the development of tourism cooperation in the Greater Pearl River Delta (GPRD) region of China using a case study of a city within this region. A focus group interview was performed with officials from the local tourism authorities. Seven dimensions of tourism cooperation in the area were identified, together with five facilitating and inhibiting factors affecting such cooperation. The findings of this study show that tourism cooperation in the region echoes available theoretical discussions with pronounced Chinese characteristics. This study can serve as a reference for related authorities and planners both across and beyond the GPRD region when considering further measures to advance the overall development of tourism cooperation.; This study evaluates the development of tourism cooperation in the Greater Pearl River Delta (GPRD) region of China using a case study of a city within this region.
