There has been very little documentation of the Asian experience in planning and managing urban heritage areas, especially those experiencing tourism pressures. In order to better understand the challenges in these areas, 47 case examples have been authored by experienced practitioners who have worked in Asia over the past two decades in the areas of heritage conservation and/or cultural heritage tourism. The issues discussed in the case examples are those that the practitioners have identified as being of particular relevance to the heritage and sustainable tourism debate. Combined, these case examples provide geographic breadth and longitudinal depth, offering a comprehensive and credible body of data. In this chapter the case examples relate to heritage, which encompasses issues such as authenticity, integrity, heritage impact, historic urban landscapes, intangible heritage, tangible heritage and World Heritage sites.
