Heritage in general, and in particular urban heritage in Asia, is at the focus of a perfect storm with populations growing rapidly in cities as the rate of urbanization continues to grow at an alarming rate. Together with populations increasing rapidly in cities as urbanization grows, there are ever larger numbers of tourists placing significant pressure on urban heritage resources.
The Planning and Management of Responsible Urban Heritage Destinations in Asia explores issues such as:

• Cities that are above their ‘carrying capacity’ and the damage caused to tangible and intangible heritage assets;
• The need for a new management process to accommodate greater visitor numbers;
• The move to stewardship as the approach for the future;
• The ethical, social and regulatory issues surrounding the expropriation of heritage.

The Planning and Management of Responsible Urban Heritage Destinations in Asia introduces the reader to the nature of the urban heritage, the pressures facing this heritage and the planning and management approaches and techniques that are available to deal with the realities facing the urban heritage.

Essential reading for urban policymakers and planners, tourism officials, tourism industry professionals and heritage planners and managers as well as undergraduates and postgraduates of Tourism, Urban Planning and Sustainability.

Includes introductory chapter written by Professor Harold Goodwin.

Part of the Responsible Tourism Series edited by Harold Goodwin and John Swarbrooke.
