In recent years, under the influence of consumer demand and national policy, there appears a new trend in the market called Hands-on Inquiry Based Learning (HIBL), which quickly draws much attention from the public and has gradually become a new power in China’s tourism market. Systematically speaking, HIBL itself, as one of the ways to organize practical teaching at all levels of education, is a new trend in the development of education. Meanwhile, it is also a brand-new development opportunity for the development of tourism. This paper explores the positive roles cultural tourism resources played on the development of tourism industry based on the actual situations of HIBL, aiming to provide some viable theoretical suggestions for relevant practitioners in relevant industries.
