With the booming development of border tourism in China, competitions among different tourism destinations in border areas are becoming increasingly fierce. Model construction is the basic work for tourism competitiveness research in border counties. The study analyzes the characteristics of border county tourism competitiveness, summarizes affecting factors and formation mechanism, then constructs a conceptual model consisted with exterior and interior competitiveness. Exterior competitiveness is the ultimate performance of tourism competitiveness in border counties, which is measured by tourism arrivals and revenues. Interior competitiveness can explain the causes of tourism competitiveness formation more specifically, which involves supporting and driving factors of tourism development. The study concludes that in order to provide reference for establishment of scientific strategy on tourism development in border counties, the study of characteristics of competitive factors on spatiotemporal variations and a deep analysis on driving mechanism of different types of border counties should be strengthened in the future.
