The gradual improvement of the feeder network makes the rapid transportation network of northeast basically form. This article uses GIS spatial analysis method to measure the influence of high-speed rail on accessibility of urban tourism traffic in Northeast China. Then, it analyzes the new characteristics and changes of the city tourism market under the high-speed rail network in Northeast China. Results found that: 1) High speed rail has greatly improved the accessibility of tourist traffic in cities of Northeast China, and the accessibility of space has obvious "high speed corridor effect". In the process of network formation, the change of accessibility spatial pattern has changed from the polarization characteristic of main road operation period to the balanced characteristics of the perfect line of the branch line, and the development pattern of the northeast "all dimensional tourism" has begun to take shape; 2) The main road formation period, high iron to siphon effect is dominant, exacerbating the imbalance in the development of the tourism market of Northeast cities, Harbin Tourism Economic Belt gradually formed; in the improvement of the branch period, high-speed rail have the diffusion effects become dominant, balanced development situation began to highlight; 3) High speed rail has promoted the development of urbanization in Northeast China, the pattern of city tour and surrounding tour will be changed, and the mode of inter provincial tour and inter regional tour will gradually be popular. At the same time, the high-speed rail has greatly promoted the development of the “fast-food” tourism market, the mode of short-term tourism development model will become the new darling of the high-speed rail era.

Key words: traffic accessibility, tourism spatial pattern, trunk, branch line, Northeast China
