The econometric preferences analysis of destination attributes is complemented by an investigation of the influences that standard socio-demographic, attitudinal and cultural background variables exert on preferences. A qualitative interviews (n=22), a precursor study (n=213; split-sampled with either attitude or image of nature items) and a main study (n=616) were organized in mainland China in 2005 and 2006 in Beijing and Chengdu. The results from studies indicate that Chinese middle class respondents generally prefer destinations with improved levels of convenience, more cultural attractions and more natural attractions, but less tarnished nature experience, sustainable tourism services, and costs. The positive attitudes toward sustainable tourism services, in line with the harmonious human-nature relation images of nature dimensions, generate positive influences only regarding trip convenience.
