Abstract
The negative environmental externalities caused by rural tourism has not only seriously damaged the local environment, but has also hindered the sustainable development of local tourism. In this paper, we analyze the two major obstacles when internalizing externalities of rural tourism with conventional solutions: difficulties in overcoming the information inadequacy and providing benefit compensation. In order to eliminate the adverse effects of externalities, a new idea is proposed that Rural Tourism Interest Community may have some advantages in tackling the above problems and internalizing negative externalities. At last, a case study of Tianlongtunbao Cultural Village is provided to demonstrate its advantages.
