This opinion piece article discusses and evaluates various issues of China tourism research from the stance of an overseas Chinese tourism scholar on the basis of his personal scholarly experiences. The article is composed of three parts. Part One echoes McKercher’s recent discussions on the status of international tourism research and discusses the relevant issues pertaining to China tourism research based on the author’s personal thoughts. Part Two briefly talks about some frontier theoretical issues facing China tourism research. Part Three analyses the common problems authors based in mainland China face in publishing their research in international English language research journals and provides recommendations. It is recommended that the tourism research community in China should be more self-reflexive in their scholarly activities; they also need to take an international perspective and view angle to contribute more to the commonwealth of the world’s tourism knowledge.

Key words: China tourism, research, research writing, research community
