dc.description.abstractEconomic corridors are growing in importance as solutions to common regional problems around the globe. In the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS), the identified economic corridors cross transnational areas with potential for natural or cultural heritage-based tourism activity. In this paper, we describe an approach to the development of community-based tourism attractions based on the concepts of transport-based economic corridors. Using one segment of the GMS North–South Economic Corridor as a case study, we contrast this new approach with tourism corridor strategies in other parts of the world. While the development model emphasizes a holistic approach to the development of attractions at the country level, it also identifies opportunities for continued subregional cooperation to support the newly developed sites.
