This study explores the value link mode of tourists in cultural heritage sites by means-end chain theory, constructs the graph of means-end chain of tourists in cultural heritage sites. The results show that: 1. Tourists from different cultural heritage sites have different perceptions of the attributes of cultural heritage sites, and they have some commonalities as well. 2. On the basis of means-end chain relations between the tourists perceived attributes of cultural heritage site and their pursuits of personal value, cultural heritage tourists can be divided into 5 groups.3.
