Abstract: This paper studies the spatial distribution pattern of inbound tourists in Hunan Province and its changes from the perspective of time and space. Tourism data in the period between 1997 and 2013 is adopted together with the preference scale,annual concentration ratio,dynamic index,geographic concentrate index,and location entropy index for the study which shows that: 1) the number of inbound tourists has been increasing substantially for the last 17 years and tourism development varies from city to city,2)preference scale of inbound tourists has been on a downward trend,and the inbound tourism develops better when the preference scale is on a higher level,3) location entropy indexes of cities are generally low,causing obvious differences among cities,4) geographic concentrate index is high but on a downward trend,5) the gap between inbound tourism development in different cities shrinks with a dispersed and balanced spatial distribution and a shift of development mode from " one nuclear and double center network" to " one nuclear and multicenter network".
