Abstract

The United Nations General Assembly (NUGA) emphasizes that using sustainable and resilient tourism as the tool for sustained and inclusive economic growth, social development, and financial inclusion, will help promote domestic resource mobilization and environmental protection. Based on social-economic development and tourism data from the Guangdong Provincial Statistical Yearbook, this paper uses the panel two-way fixed effect model to empirically analyze the impact of tourism on urban sustainable development in 21 prefecture-level cities in Guangdong Province from 2000 to 2019. Results show: (1) Overall, tourism has a negative effect on urban sustainable development, and this effect is mainly Derived from domestic tourism rather than international tourism; (2) The impact of tourism on urban sustainable development has a threshold effect. When the average tourism income is greater than 0.07 hundred million yuan, its adverse impact will be enhanced. (3) In the context of well-developed urban infrastructure (real rental cars and express delivery at the end of the year), tourism exacerbates the city's various burdens, not conducive to the sustainable development of the city, but at the same time in terms of public services, slowing down the pressure of residents on the demand for transportation and driving up the city's tourism revenue, the negative impact of tourism on the sustainable development of the city will be weakened.
