In regional tourist resources development and allocation, the structure of tourist resources often plays an important role. The length of the new Eurasian Continental Bridge in China is more than 4000 km, it is one of the main axes of Chinese economic allocation, the Outline of the Tenth Five-Year Plan for National Economic and Social Development requires that the economic belt relying on the new Eurasian Continental Bridge should be established. The section along the new Eurasian Continental Bridge in China, which is called the economic belt of the new Eurasian continental bridge in China in this paper, is not only rich in the tourist resources with a great quantity of landscape, various types and wide distribution, but also has the distinguishing feature. However, because of the low level of economic and social development in this area and the lack of scientific plan, the tourist resources are not fully utilized over a long period of time, and especially in the spatial structure, they are both uneven and irrational. Therefore, it is of great importance to make research into the structure, the development and the allocation of the tourist resources.Firstly, regarding 53 tourist landscape regions in this economic belt as the unit of research, combining qualitative method with quantitative method, this paper analyzes the structure types, spatial structure, threshold structure and developing hierarchical structure of the tourist resources in the economic belt, and finds the features in four aspects: 1) chief of the structure types is cultural tourist landscape; 2) there are two cultural regions in the spatial structure; 3) the scale of China is main body in the threshold structure; 4) there are three levels in the development structure.Secondly, with the above study, this paper puts forward the main aims, the overall thinking, the model of spatial allocation and the organization in time and space of tourist resources development in the economic belt, and places emphases on two of them: 1) it is the main aims to build up a tourist belt exerting a tremendous worldwide influence around 2010; 2) to sum up the spatial allocation model of tourist resources development with 1 core, 4 grown poles, 5 nodes, 1 main axis, 3 expanding axes, 18 characteristic routes and 5 divided functional regions.Thirdly, from the distinctive features and developing situation of the tourist resources in 5 tourist regions of the belt, this paper probes into the rational development of them respectively.Lastly, in view of the relative problems, the paper discusses the strategical measures of the tourist resources development in this belt in aspects such as government role and organization coordination, relationship between development and protection, image creation, etc.
