Abstract

The aim was to explore the reserve of ecological and wellness tourism resources in the famous ecological and wellness base Hong Kong Wetland Park and further construct a systematic index system for the evaluation of ecological and wellness tourism resources in wetland parks. The DHGF algorithm was used to conduct hierarchical factor weighting analysis on ecotourism resource-related factors. The study showed that in terms of the index weights of ecological permaculture tourism resources in wetland parks, the highest weight was assigned to the permaculture tourism resources’ own conditions. According to the evaluation system of eco-health tourism resources, the comprehensive evaluation score of eco-health tourism resources of Hong Kong Wetland Park is 7.673, and the comprehensive evaluation level is grade II (good). Based on the in-depth analysis of the evaluation results, it is proposed to establish a standardized government management system, explore ecological and health tourism resources with the concept of “original ecology and green health”, cultivate “recreation and health tourism + ecological health” composite professionals in Hong Kong and Macao, and create the recommendations, including the establishment of a four-dimensional integration of “ecology + health + health + tourism” in the Greater Bay Area.
