Abstract/Summary Based on three case studies of rural tourism practices in suburban Beijing, China, this paper proposes a community‐driven development (CDD) approach in developing rural tourism. The paper illustrated three principles of the CDD approach: localisation of supply chain, community‐external investor symbiosis and democratisation of decision making. The three principles serve as a key to understanding and successfully implementing the CDD approach in China. Although the three principles come from the practice of rural tourism development in China, it is hoped that theoretical implications generated from this study could be recommended to direct tourism planning exercises in other countries, especially those developing countries with similar economic development backgrounds to China.
