A Study on the Symbiosis between Tourism Scenic Spot and Local Community Development—A Case Study of Shawan Ancient Town



Based on the symbiosis theory, taking Shawan Ancient Town in Panyu as an example, this paper explores the current situation of the scenic spot and community of Shawan Ancient Town by conducting the field investigation, and analyzes its existing problems and existing symbiosis mode. According to the field investigation and analysis, the relationship between the scenic spot and the community of Shawan Ancient Town is currently in the stage of commensalism which is in favor of the scenic spot, and has the potential to develop to the stage of mutualism. Finally, this paper adopts the symbiosis theory to analyze and explore the path and solution of harmonious development between scenic spot and community as well as the way to mutualism with the goal of harmonious sustainable development between scenic spot and community.
