Playing upon fantasy: women, ethnic tourism and the politics of identity construction in contemporary Xishuang Banna, China



Playing upon fantasy: women, ethnic tourism and the politics of identity construction in contemporary Xishuang Banna, China



Tourism Recreation Research 28(2): 51-65



Manchunman has been promoted as a domestic ethnic tourism destination for tourists expecting a pristine, feminine and mysterious Dai culture in the Xishuang Banna Dai Nationality Autonomous Prefecture (hereafter, Banna), P.R. China. Tourism development turns the village not only into a destination to meet tourists' thirst for cultural exoticness but also a frontier of interacting with the outside world for Dai villagers.
