Abstract
Chinese urbanization has met a significant turning point which needs new industry pattern to boost up Chinese economy. Smart industry is one of the important forces to escape the dilemma. On the other hand, with the rapid growth of Chinese citizens’ consumption level, their demands for travelling experience is also increasing strongly and becoming more accurate. What’s more, in recent years, the acceleration of Chinese tourism industry development has slowed down, meaning while, research shows that the growth of middle class will grow in the future. Taken together, the need for transformation of the tourism industry is becoming more and more urgent. Under such circumstances, smart tourism is gradually developing as an emerging trends. However, in the implantation of Chinese smart tourism design, the designers can rarely act as a leader to promote a concept by themselves. This is also the reason why many smart tourism development in Chinese Cities still stay in an infrastructure construction phase and why it’s difficult to really meet the needs of tourists. Therefore, an innovation oriented design method for smart tourism products need to be developed under the Chinese smart industry context. Based on these perspectives, with a developing foresight, I will summarize the current development situations of the smart city and smart tourism both in China and foreign regions, and developed a method to help innovative service designing of smart tourism by combining travelers’ demand, technology, innovation and business factors together. Ultimately, this study will end up with a design case which is based on Cangzhou planning project.
