The paper systematically reviews the "gaze" theory in tourism studies both at home and abroad, which has been mainly focused on "tourist gaze". The paper suggests that "tourism gaze" is an interactive and complicated concept with the participation of multi-stakeholders, rather than one-way gaze from tourists. "Tourism gaze" should also include "gaze from local people", "gaze from experts" "gaze between tourists" and "hidden gaze" and "mutual gaze" among stakeholders due to power gaps and changes. "Tourism gaze" tries to inspect the whole society from the perspective of tourism, which is of positive theoretical and practical significance. Based on the the comment on theoretical studies, the paper elaborates emphatically on the study orientation that can be accomplished among Chinese scholars, combining tourist development trends both domestically and internationally.
