Abstract: In order to understand the essence of tourism logistics activities, the author studies and summarizes the existing research results of tourism logistics at home and abroad, finding that there exist two kinds of logistics phenomena in tourism industry. Then, the author analyses in-depth the cross process between the two kinds of logistics phenomena and tourist flow from the perspective of time and space as well as identifies the key factors in the process of their separation and combination. Next, focusing on the two kinds of logistics phenomena, the author completely explains the process of the tourism logistics activities via the in-out transformation mechanism. Finally, the functions and objectives of the tourism logistics system are defined through the separation and combination of tourists and items theory in this paper, which provides instructive directions for future research.
