Abstract

This study illustrates the features of tourism flow as well as politics, economics and trade between Mainland China and Taiwan. The Taiwanese visiting Mainland China have comprised the main tourist market between Mainland China and Taiwan. Conversely, the number of visitors from Mainland Chinese to Taiwan is very limited. The relationship between Mainland China and Taiwan is highly unbalanced. Some obstacles for tourism cooperation, including transportation, politics, and culture between the Mainland and Taiwan, have also been indicated in this study. Thus, the corresponding solutions to the above obstacles such as tourism cooperation, politics, transportation, and culture between Mainland China and Taiwan have been put forward. Finally, the role of tourism in reconciliation and peace between Mainland China and Taiwan is discussed and supported.
