Culture, and the creative industries it inspires, is a vital asset for cities’ economic competitiveness and attractiveness. However, rising population, urbanization, rapid development, and even tourism, often place pressure to the cities’ cultural and heritage resources. People are important component of any tourism cities as they are the key behind the cities’ dynamic and vibrancy. People as residents play their important role as host, business owners, human resources in the tourism industry, and even as the guardians of cultural and heritage resources. Tourists as people coming to destinations also come with different motives and needs, often impacting on how tourism industry operates. Technology, especially information and communication technology (ICT) is the most far-reaching changes to our society. It has been innovatively used to enhance quality of life of the residents and to enable tourists to have better experience.
